Game/3dBenchmark stuttering, MOBO/video incompatibility?

Recommended Posts

To fix this issue with my system I got a new BIOS for the GFX card and I modified it to provide the core with 1.5v in 3D instead of only 1.4v.

 

Turning off fast writes fixes this issue for most, but as you've said it hasn't for you :(

My BIOS already gives 1.5V to the card. However, I am willing to try anything, so I will try to find the above mentioned BIOS and give it a shot. If you don't mind, WalrusBonzo, could you please link me to a site where i could download that?

Ok, I tried my brother's hard drive in my computer again, and now it's stuttering with his. So now i'm back to the point where i have no idea what it is. :drool: I created a batch file that stops all processes which could possibly be causing problems, such as virusScan, Automatic updates, and windows security center. Unfortunately the freezing did not decrease, although the loading times were much faster without virus scan checking every file opened for viruses.

I had this same problem and I fixed it. I reloaded my computer and I now have the same issues again when playing games. Let me figure out how I fixed it and I'll get back to you bud.

Here's something interesting:

I tried to flash my GFX bios today, but first I wanted to save the old one. So I did start -> run -> cmd, went to the directory where i put nvflash and typed nvflash -b mybios.rom and it said

 

Error: PCI BIOS not present

This program can only be run under dos.

 

So i restarted and used a dos startup disk. That gave me some error. So first of all, its a AGP card, is there some way to tell the program it is AGP? Second, Is it possible that the card is BIOS-less?

Hello,

 

No if it has no BIOS it would not work. :)

If you want to save the BIOS use this disk.

You can type GET, that will automatically save the BIOS to save.rom

 

What BIOS are you trying to flash it to?

Place that BIOS on the disk to.

 

then type

nvflash -f ?????.rom

 

Dont type UPDATE (that will flash the card with the save.rom BIOS (old bios))

That batch file is pretty much what I was doing, but it said that it was copied. Problem is, there's no save.rom on that disk. So I guess I'm out of luck.

 

Memtest 9 hours no errors.

 

EDIT: I tried again and it's there. Don't know why, but it worked this time.

Can you run Prime or OCCT for extended periods? MemTest is not a really good indicator of true memory performance, as I have found. Prime blend test has been showing my errors much moreso that MemTest. What is your VCore sitting at?

Sorry dude, been away for 2 weeks.

 

I know this is a rather big thread but the issue is discussed at great lengths here - http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=32759

 

It's a common GF6800/NF3 issue!

 

You should find your BIOS to download here - http://www.mvktech.net/index.php?option=co...er&filecatid=63

Well, I'd like to thank everyone for posting their ideas on the site. I fixed the freezing problem. I changed my graphics card bios to allow 1.4V to the core, rather than only 1.3. I now know that just because the mobo BIOS sends 1.5V to the AGP slot doesn't mean the core is gonna get all of it. I'd especially like to thank Wlarusbonzo since he was the one who suggested it. Mine runs fine at 1.4 though, I don't need to turn it up to 1.5

Thanks everyone. :shake:
