any one know how to fix this problem? i have other issues with the card but the infinite loop is the main one
p4vm890 motherboard pcie 1 (is this the prob?)
200 gig Maxtor hd
geforce 9600gtxxx graphics with latest 177.79 beta drivers
300w 25a power supply. 12v rail seems a bit low at 11.235
iv tried the latest signed drivers and the original ones with the card and even older versions of the drivers. all give me the same prob
system will run all day and will sometimes crash on desktop with multi coloured artifacts on the screen and sometimes reboot but as soon as i load a 3d game it crashes to black screen a few seconds after the graphics are displayed.
when i first installed the card the only games that would run where serious sam 1 and Company of hero's.
since then iv had some viruses and nothing worked after that so i killed them and reformatted
now PC runs lovely but i cant play any games.
iv tried Driver Cleaner and before the format i even tried registry cleaners

so i take it its better to search for specific registry probs than to do a general clean up.
well other than this crashing in 3d games i dont think i have any other probs. actually i have noticed that the splash screens to some games like diablo2 and chronicles of ridic and to my sound card are stuttery and also windows default screen savers are very slow especially beziers and flowerbox. ie. 1 line a second draw rate in full screen and flowerbox just appears slow
i spose i do have another prob. any ideas on that one. i only noticed this yesterday, i dont really use screen savers but i was fiddling around and i thought id see how the 3d screen savers run with this graphics card and as it stands not very well, which surprised me. i don't think iv got another infection, iv been through various checks with other members here on this site and all seems well on that side of things, so i figure it must be a setting somewhere or something but i dont know. got me stumped.
