Bad NVidia Graphics Cards

Here's another negative article about bad chips in Notebooks: http://www.techspot.com/news/31208-nvidia-...ailing-too.html.I would get hold of the manufacturer of your notebook to see if there's a problem. I don't think all the chips are bad. I doubt many flight simmers use Notebooks for FSX but obviously there will be some and this may be the cause of CTD's or other issues they may be having with FSX. I have a Notebook and a Desktop system, both using Nvidia GPU's and I haven't found a problem with the GPU's yet. I did have to replace one of my 8800 GTX's about 4 months after I bought my system from Dell though. Don't know what caused the problem but it was totally kaput. Fortunately, Dell replaced it for free. Ciao,Jim

Hi Jim,This report is about DESKTOP cards failing at high rates, including the widely sold 8800 GT! If this report is true it could have serious implications for the FS community, as many of us have nVidia cards.Cheers,Noel.

Hmmm, interesting read. I can say that I've seen nothing to date that would suggest that I have a bad card though, if I do, it will be back to ATI.Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.Regards,Jeff
