(I used to get a blue screen memory parity error ~once a week, but since reinstalling the drivers garagesale sends, I have not had a bluescreen yet and its been just over a week)
Just a thought.... but I agree... this card does get a bit toasty (love it though)
Think Im gonna slap er in there again and see if I can mirror that fix. Thank you.
For everyone else, There is either 1 of 2 things going on here about the drivers only recognizing our cards as the "X" version.
Reason 1: Garagesale is lying to us all and sending us cards that are not what he says. I cannot believe that could be the case. He is too public, and I have his home address.
Reason 2: Drivers.... period. The installer inf file is not recognizing our cards right. If I install the card and go to windows update, it recognizes my card as an EXS version which made me
even more. You can force install the proper driver through device manager which will make the card recognize right. Dont worry, normally it will not crash you (unless you start getting those damn memory parity errors like me because of using "other" drivers. then you just read the last post and start again...).
anyway im off to see what I can accomplish with this. i love the card, i wish i could get it to work right
