Hi folks, this is my first post on this site. I have an M2N SLI Deluxe MB.(2006)
6 Gigs of Kingston Ram
PSU is 700 watts
Windows 7 64 bit
and my video card is a Zotac (8x, 16x) 710 gt (2 gig card). As of about a couple of months ago everything was fine then one day i get this message (Display driver stopped responding and has recovered.) This has happened when playing World of Tanks, and on Facebook.
The main graphics slot on the MB is 1.0 and for some reason the card only works on the second slot. ( No Biggy) At least it works. I have upgraded the bios, MB drivers for the board, video card drivers ect, I have researched the problem for a while now and I still have this problem. I have tweaked the registry, bios, I am at the end of my proverbial rope. I know that the card I have is not really a gaming card, but it worked for a while. So its at this point I am looking for advice and I hope some of you guys and or girls can give me that help.
This is want I'd like to do either up grade the Vid card with something better then what I have and for it to work with what I've got. Or buy a new MB, CPU, Video Card, and memory. I'd be able to cannibalize the old system. If I were to buy a new video card would it be able to work in a 1.0 slot? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
