    alrighty so

    I had been getting these random lockups on my comp for a while then they finally stopped (I got better cooling for proc). now they have started back up again. the error report from windows said that a hardware device driver caused the problem. to me, I think the only real problem must be the nvidia driver since its the video that gets completely scrambled right before reboot. has anyone else with a 6600gt had this problem? maybe someone has a set of drivers that helped fix their problem? any advice is appriciated :D

    How long have you had the 6600GT?

    What kind of PSU do you have? If it pushes the 6600GT to the limit it can be that it's short of juice.

    well I reinstalled my sound card drivers and it stopped locking

    however I am still getting the random purple and green spots after a while (video card overheating?)

    also I've had it for about 6 months now :)

    also in the random lockups, the sound will cut to random pops and beeps and the like along with the video, sometimes the video goes EXTREMELY screwed up too but even with the sound popping locks there are tons of flashing green and purple lights all over the screen when it freezes (they get worse when its about to)
