Sorry for the late reply, been out
Atm i am using 257.15beta for testing just that. Still same problem tho.
Havent tried rolling back yet, since that will be a long search. What are the oldest decent drivers for a GTX280?
After getting a new motherboard and CPU (not to broken about that )
I still had the exact same problems after a while.
Finally fixed it tho.
It wasnt the GPU, MB, CPU, Memory. But the PSU!
Reason i didnt check that cuz the system frooze whenever my 280GTX would hit 71degrees. Seems it did have todo with that temp just not the way i thought.
Simple electric basics: heat something up and its internal electrical resistance rises, thus requirering more power from the PSU. Which it tried to get through an solderpoint that was broken.
So depending on the heat of my PSU, that solderjoint was either making decent enough contact or just not enough. Leading to my GPU giving artifacts (filling the screen with green and speckles)
Was annoying to find out since it was kinda random if the 71degrees would lock my system up.
Anyway, a good dap of solder fixed that. Also went over almost all the solderjoints in my PSU. Lot of work, but cheaper then a new one [thumbup]
Thanks, but i only found it cuz that is a common problem i run into at my work.
Many of the electronic boards that drive the panels we create suffer from it due. Mainly due to the fact that alot of them are installed in areas where there is alot of change in temperature and humidity. So the boards themselves tend to expand and shrink, and if a solderjoint isnt done correctly it will fail.
Tbh, when the boards were made by hand we had alot less problems like this. If this keeps up we will change manufacturer soon.
