    Hi people,

    I probably have the ultimate challenge for you guys to solve. :D Here we go....

    I have the ASUS V9999/TD Geforce 6800 128MB. When I install forceware 66.93 everything is fine. But if I go above and try installing forceware versions in the 7x.xx range, I get random reboots (no bluescreen or Win XP log entry even though XP is set up to show bluescreen and write log entries). Both in Win XP desktop as well as 3D games.
    I've tried every possible thing to try to solve it but so far no luck. Here is what I've tried:

    - Upgrading BIOS
    - Tried every thinkable change in BIOS settings - especially AGP settings
    - Tried moving around RAM blocks, pulling some out etc.
    - Checked voltage which is fine
    - Installed ASUS Enhanced Drivers
    - Used SmartDoc to check for malfunctions - none what so ever
    - Made sure the grfx card get its power from its own powercord from the PSU
    - Disconnected all case fans
    - Checked the case/motherboard/grfx card hardware connections
    - Tried degrading/upgrading different drivers for different hardware in XP
    - Tried different tweak NVIDIA beta versions

    As you can see - I've done almost everything. Any suggestions?

    My rig:
    Mobo: ASUS A7V8x
    PSU: 410watt
    CPU: Athlon XP 2800+ (2GHz)
    RAM; 1,2GB PC2700
    HD: Samsung 80GB 7200rpm
    CDRW: Lite-On
    Grfx: ASUS V9999/TD Geforce 6800 128MB ram
    Monitor: Acer AL1714
    Windows XP Home SP2

    Hope someone can help me pleazzzeee... :)

    it`s possible that it maybe an infinte loop error, download latest via chipset drivers and/or search google.com for "Test_Driver1.zip"

    It may help.

    for jayzo:
    i think you have an IRQ or memory alloc problem. 66.93 is older and have a different kind of memory alloc rather than forceware 7x.xx. try to reinstal winxp and have just the video card.instal forceware 7x.xx and test your system. then plug the rest of your boards and see what's happening

    Well - I allready checked the power and it should be ok.

    I tried the test_driver1.zip - no result.
    I disconnected my USB PCI Extension card - no result.
    Uninstalled all drivers to Sony Ericsson Communiction Suite and remove the datacabel and drivers - no result..... :(

    This really sucks!!!!

    Chipset drivers - have the latest VIA4in1 installed and have just tried one version earlier. No result either....

    I'm wondering...

    how is are your ram settings set ?

    Are they running in sync with the cpu fsb ?
    as this can also cause random bsod's...

    if they are running out of sync, try setting them in sync in the bios...


    its a long shot , but i had similar issues with my previous rig...

    Try this, it fixed the BSOD's for myself.

    The new DEP (Data Execution Prevention) technology (see special chapter on DEP below for background information) can cause a blue screen stop error with incompatible drivers. If your computer runs on an AMD Athlon 64, AMD Sempron (mobile), AMD Opteron, or Intel Itanium processor, you may want to disable hardware DEP for a test.

    To disable DEP, you have to make a change to the BOOT.INI file in the root of the partition from which the computer boots. To get Windows to run, your only choice is now safe mode. To boot into safe mode, press F8 a few times after the BIOS has finished its booting and Windows begins to load. Once you have booted into safe mode, use these steps:

    Right-click on My Computer and select Properties.
    Click on the Advanced tab.
    Click on the third button—settings for system start options.
    Click on the Edit button to edit the boot.ini file.
    Carefully edit the /NoExecute=OptIn string and change it to AlwaysOff. This part at the end of the line should now read: /NoExecute=AlwaysOff
    Save and close the dialog boxes by clicking on OK.

    Install Rivatuner and overclock the 2D graphics to match the clock speed of the 3D graphics, this solved all the lockups on my asus V9999 Ultra Deluxe

    What Sound Card are you using ??? Make sure your GFX card and Sound card are not sharing the same IRQ.

    Did the Riva thing - no improvement.

    My soundcard is onboard at IRQ 22 and my grfx is at IRQ 16. :)

    Thanks every body for all your help. But I give up.... :( I guess I'm just stuck at 66.93. Maybe sometime in the future NVIDIA will release a forceware that I can use. :)

    Thanks again everybody.

    Well, you said you used driver cleaner... and installed chipset drivers...

    Have you tried installing modified drivers?? Don't get your hopes high, but it's worth a shot... :O

    Also try taking your card out the slot , see if theres any dust and then put it back in the slot. (even if theres no dust, try this).

    And be sure of the power supply. I had strange artifacts, but my temps were ok and the voltage was good. But actually, the problem was the PSU, so I changed it and everything is right. Also don't get your hopes high, because, as you stated, it's the drivers that are causing problems...

    GL, mate.

    Am I right to say that Asus card uses propriety stuff? Did you try flashing the boios of your 6800 to that of another card? For example, Leadtek? I am not good at bios flashing, so you need some guru's help to analyse the bios for you to find a suitable one. The BIOS I mentioned here is not the BIOS of your system but that of your video card in case you do not know.

    Sounds like it could be a psu problem,drivers shouldnt make your pc reboot...
    are you overclocking?
    Check your ram and cpu volts might need to bump em up a lil...
    Check your rails...
