DAVe3283 Posted December 9, 2008 Report Share Posted December 9, 2008 (edited) I have a GeForce Go 7950 GTX in my Dell M1710. My first card (7900 GT) had the video ram fail, so I replaced it with this one. The card runs between 53 C (idle) and 65 C (games), which seems fine to me. However, recently, if I let the computer power off the display, then load a game or even Media Center, the textures get all corrupted. This can't be fixed by putting the computer to sleep and waking it up, I have to reboot. However, after the reboot, the games all work fine. The corruption looks just like what my old card did shortly before it failed, except my old card had that corruption at all times, including on the desktop and in the BIOS. When corrupted on the screen, if I take a screenshot (with FRAPS), the screenshot is fine. Running the games in Windowed mode eliminates the corruption, as does running them in full screen on an external monitor. But if I move them back to the LCD, they are corrupted again. Finally, for some reason, turning on Anti Aliasing eliminates the corruption. Again, none of this shows up until the system has powered off the display then turned it back on. Is my video card about to fail (again :) ), or is this a driver problem? I am kind of stumped here. Oh: driver version 175.32, but 174.31 had the same problem LaptopVideo2Go_LogFile.rar Edited December 9, 2008 by DAVe3283 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
