Here's my problem, it's going to be a long post (sorry)
OS: windows XP
motherboard: asus crosshair
Processor AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual core 5600+
Hard drive: 1 X 10k raptor drive 150 gig and Raided Mirrored 2x 320gig (for file storage, etc)
Video card: Nvidia 8800 gtx 768ram BFG card
I installed the warhammer beta preview weekend game and played for the first night, the next day though it crashed and since then I have had horizontal lines on my screen. I have the "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" when I go to hardware manager under the properties tab on the video card. I was able to fix this problem through uninstalling the nvidia drivers in safe mode and then I reinstalled them, but this only corrected the problem for two/three days and now it's back. I did uninstall the drivers in safemode and ran disc cleaner pro rebooted and reinstalled drivers, no change.
I know the system is running on the generic windows drivers as there is that step scrolling.
I've also tried to reformat my system. I run 1x 150gig 10k raptor drive as my primary drive and have a raided mirror 320gigs x2 hard drives in raid. I've put the xp disc in and a few different things happen. When I try to do a fresh install it cannot find the hard drive, and I've also tried installing the raid drivers with a floppy and some error code comes up on that as well.
I would really like to be able to get a reformat going on to wipe everything to eliminate whether it is a software or hardware issue. My brother has a system with the same video card and if it doesn't clear up with the format I can swap cars to see if its the card.
Where should I go from here? If there is any other info you guys need plz post as I will get asap! I have been messing with this on and off for over a week now between work. It's super annoying as I can't play my games
I've reformatted before with xp cd and never had an issue, but this was before I added the raid mirror. I'm using the nvidia media shield.
