    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    The links you have posted don`t appear to be working properly. When I click on them I get a message saying "sorry the page you requested was not found"

    If you follow the above instructions, someone will take a look at your minidumps, and advise.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    You forgot to attach the minidumps?

    They can be found in c/windows/minidump

    Just zip 5 or 6 of them up, using either Winzip, or Winra etc.

    Regards Howard :) :)

    All your minidumps crash at nv4_mini.sys, this is your graphics card driver.

    Uninstall anything to do with nvidia, from add remove programmes, and uninstall your graphics card from your device manager.

    Then reboot your computer.

    Then go and get the latest drivers from HERE

    If you`re already using the latest drivers, then try using an older version.

    Also check in your bios, that fastwrites are turned off, as this can cause issues with some graphics cards.

    Regards Howard :) :)

    i have tried 2 different driver versions, the ones that came with my bfg 6800gt at the time when i got it, and the newest ones, i have been using the new ones for about almost a week now, hasent changed anything. do u think it could be heat? when im playing fear, the system auto boosts everytime the core temp gets around 97/98 for a few seconds, rarely see 98C happens too fast

    If your gpu is running at 97/98°c then that is way to hot.

    Are you sure it`s C° and not F°

    Is the fan on your card working properly?

    If you open your case, and place a desk fan blowing onto your card, does this help?

    Regards Howard :)

    yeah man that is Cels, i have tried putting a huge box fan directly next to the case, and it did nothing

    i am getting my temp readings from that nvidia panel, that shows the ambient, core, and core shutdown threshold

    Maybe your card is faulty. I don`t think it should be getting that hot.

    If it`s still under warranty, then maybe you should think about an RMA.

    Other members may have different ideas.

    Regards Howard :)

    Hi Olivia,
    The BFG 6800GT's are overclocked right out of the box and therefore run very, very hot. 100C is the upper limit prior to damage on that GPU.

    These cards assume two things:
    1) A professional case WITH fan ventilation- not just fans. You need a case with both intake and exhaust fans- with exhaust fans near the video slot. This creates an airflow of sucking air from the front of the case, over the CPU/Video core and exhausting this hot, trapped air out the back of the case. Antec cases are well designed for this.

    2) Remaining system components are well oriented and not succeptible to trapped videocard/gpu heat. Some mainboards have the CPU and memory slots arranged too near the videoslot and thus need better cooling.

    I'd recommend ensuring you have intake/exhaust case fans, as well as trying to manually reduce the GPU speed for a test. IF you still have the same problems with GPU speed and temps reduces (say, under 88C), you have other issues.

    Hit this URL:

    It has the Coolbits registry to unlock the GPU temp/clock tweaks in the NVidia drivers. This will allow you to select Manual Overclock and try reducing the GPU/mem speed for tests. If even at lower temps, you obtain the errors, we'll need to investigate BIOS and other settings. Too aggressive memory timings, overly hot memory/cpu, and flakey memory can also cause issues with the nv drivers.
