Okay, I can't take this. The sooner I tell you that fixed the problem, the sooner it will crash again. So.... it fixed the problem.

*waits for it*

I wish I was!

Going by the event log warning, the driver crashed while I was away. Took it a little longer than usual.

Are you LinX stable with those CPU overclocks?

Yes. 25 runs with 4700 problem sizes. Also Prime stable. I do 24/7 Bigadv Folding@home which is sensitive to any sort of instability.

It is extremely rare, but I have experienced this problem when at stock, so I am sure it isn't the overclock. But the overclock does increase the frequency of the problem, so it is related somehow. I know it isn't a problem with F@H too because I sometimes experience it when playing a game.

I've been hitting my head against a wall trying to fix this problem for over a year...

Have you tried updating DirectX with this installer?

If this does not fix the problem, try the CUDA drivers:

Hey Stefan. The DirectX installer didn't find anything to update, and the 197.45 drivers include CUDA 3.0.1 in them. I did try your drivers but they errored quickly and caused this (which I occasionally do see)

Those snowflakes are you talking about on the screen?

Yes. It's a rendering problem... if I take a screenshot of the page they don't show up, so I have to photograph the entire display to show them. When it occurs 3D applications error constantly until I restart the system.

Frankly it reminds me of failing GPU cores, you can get the exact same symptoms. These "snowflakes" appear and disappear randomly in random locations as the screen image changes

Do those 'snowflakes' appear on those other cards you own too?
