    Hi,

    The running process of all your minidumps are hl.exe and the failing module is nVidia Display card driver. Probably it is the software error of nVidia Display card driver. You version is almost the latest and may be it is not well test. Fall back nVidia Display card driver to old version

    What version would that be?

    81.94 and 81.95 both have BSOD when minimizing sometimes...

    xg modded 78.03s should work?

    Or will reinstalling hl.exe work?

    Well...:(.

    Went back to xG 78.05, no problems SO FAR.

    Any way I can use newer drivers? They give me a 250+ Pt in 3dMark05, as well as more stable OC, and better IQ.

    Spoke too soon, just closed IE and it rebooted, which used to happen, minidumps are...


    Thinking of returning this card and just getting a Ti4200...100 FPS in the games I want to play, though no eye candy...

    Could be a PSU problem?

    It's a stock dell 250W PSU, which I've seen MANY people use fine. Sometimes even with a 6800GT.

    Hi,

    You have tried different version of nVidia Display card driver. Your windows are still crashed nVidia Display Card Driver. I believe that your video card is faulty. Your last minidump is crashed with stack overflow because of recursive abend at nVidia Display Card Driver and this is the evidence of hardware error at vid. Bugcheck code EA is another evidence of faulty vid card.
