It locked-up twice again last night, forcing me to reboot both times. The game freezes, and so does everything else. The first time I was able press Ctrl-Alt-Del to get the task manager up, but it loaded like 1 pixel at a time (lol) and took over a minute. Then I heard a quick beep and got a blue screen saying that windows had to restart, referencing a problem with an NV4 driver file or something.
The second time it just froze and nothing would come back so I had to turn off the PC. Ive uninstalled and reinstalled the lastest NVidia drivers from their website, but nothing seems to help. Does it still sound like the video card?
I was playing around in BIOS (blindly because Im a noob) and I see my mobo will only go up to AGP 4X, could this cause a problem with the 6800 XT, but not my older 4800 Ti? I noticed the AGP aperture said 64M, there was 128M or 256M options so I clicked 256M hoping that might help but nope, was that wrong?
Please help, I still believe (not quite sure why) that its an issue with a driver or BIOS setting that could be easily resolved. Are there any known issues with drivers for this card?
