    I agree - I am pretty sure we would have seem more on the issue if cards weren't being replaced.

    Did they fix the ****ing performance leak. You know where you start crysis with 60fps and by the time your at the third chapter your getting 5-10fps?

    Why are these drivers still in beta?If it's just a fix then they could have done a quick re-release.
     
  4. ****ers, my card has been burning up. i found out he fan started up at 1% speed D:<
    the last 2 drivers have been horrible for me
     
  5. 197.13 drivers don't fix anything for me. My 9800GX2 and my 8800GT (in my 2 pcs) fans continue to run very slowly and the cards overheat (more than 120°c after 10 minutes of gaming for the 9800GX2 before games crash)
     
  6. Yep, if your card is out of warranty it's tough luck and go buy an ATI.
    I was asking Nvidia for that and they answer me to see with the manufacturer of my card.(it's an asus) And Asus answer me that they can't do anything for me.

    My advice is to get some computer expert over to your place and show you how to manually set fan speed and to clean the accumulated crap out of the cards.

    Hey, BoTTox isn't supposed to be injected into the brain (inside joke for this troll)
     
  8. Well I have decided to roll back from 197.13 drivers back to 196.21, until I can be absolutely sure that there aren't going to be any other further problems, as I'm not going to waste more money in having to buy yet another card.

    Already bought 9800 GT to replace a 8800 GS (bad RAM, and only lasted for three weeks.)
