New video card and problems

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Last weekend, I installed my new evga GTX-980, replacing an GTX670 in the process. At the same time I did an upgrade to the latest Nvidia driver version 347.88.

That seemed to work alright, not an increase in framerate but both FSX and P3D ran more smoothly than ever before.

 

But for the second time now, I have run into trouble.

After about an hour into the sim, my screen turns first solid grey for about 5 seconds and then solid black. The sim itself does NOT crash at all when the screen is grey/black.

I ruled out lack of virtual memory because when it happens I still have 1.5 Gb available memory, I also ruled out heath cause the card runs at aprox. 45 degrees celcius at the moment of the 'crash' (if you want to call it that way).

My guess is the driver itself...

Can anybody give any info on this? Solutions?

I will try to uninstall the current drivers and reinstall them. I hope to resolve this problem this way but if there is somebody who cas shed some light on this, I would be very gratefull.

ps. I did change my fsx.cfg and removed the traces of the previous card.

To be complete, I am running FSX + ACC on windows 7 64bit
