8800M SLi + Age of Conan Bluescreens


Recommended Posts

I've had a major issue recently with my Dell M1730 + 8800M GTX SLi.

I'll randomly get hit with a bluescreen with the irql less than or equal message. Faulty module is something like nvlddmkm.dll or something.

I've tried running Riva Tuner in the background to monitor temps but since it bluescreens I lose any logging.

I've tried several different drivers and am currently using the Sager 176.02 drivers to no avail.

Some times I'm lucky and I can get through an entire session without a crash, other times I'll get several bluescreens. Frustrating the hell out of me.

Btw, I havn't had any issues playing other games so far (i.e. TF2, CS:S, Bioshock etc...)

I've copied the 1st section from dxdiag so you can see what I've got...

This does look like a driver problem. Have you tried the latest ddrivers on this site?

I've downloaded 177.66, will try that tonight.

Also downloaded the last Dell 64bit Vista drivers I could find (167.55), they have the 8800M GTX in them so will give it a go if the 177.66 don't help.

I haven't had a try of 177.66 drivers yet, but the 167.55 ones have been working with AoC perfectly. I also notice the temps via RivaTuner are allot lower. The 17x drivers I've tried all have my card around the 70-74 range. With the 167.55 drivers (Dell ones) I'm sitting around 62-68 range.

Manufacturer's drivers are normally cooler. Lv2go's are sometimes higher in temp but yields better performance.
