Windows 7: BSOD via Biostar Nvidia 9500gt

BSOD via Biostar Nvidia 9500gt

Hello,

was experiencing BSOD's fairly often with a machine that I recently built for encoding. NOT machine in my profile (see system specs below).

system specs:
Asus M4A77D, AMD 1055t X6, Antec 520W, 8 GB Crucial DDR2 (4GB@800mhz, 4GB@667mhz), Biostar-Nvidia 9500GT 1GB DDR2.

Windows 7 Information:
-Win 7 64-bit
-Original OS
-age hardware: mobo, 1 wk; cpu, 1 wk; memory, 2 years (used for only 1 month though); HDD, 5 years;
-age system: 1wk
-age OS: 1wk

I narrowed the issue down to the Biostar vid card. Tried re-installing drivers and installing latest drivers to no avail. I had an old ATI RADEON HD 2600 256mb ddr2 laying around. Threw that in there and...Voila! BSOD crashing fixed.

However, even though BSOD crashes have been remedied, The Biostar is the more ideal card to use and would really like to know what the issue with it.

I've attached all files necessary. Thanks for help!

Hello,

There is a good chance the card is physically bad. Can you RMA the card and get a new one?

to be honest, the card retails for 50/60 $ and it wouldnt be worth it considering the hassle and shipping costs. Rather buy a new one by ATI, as the ATI in the rig now is working well. only downside is 256mb.

Then again, it's only needed as a server/encoding machine. video is not necessary. suppose I was just curious.

When I have some more time, i figure i'll troubleshoot the card some more. any thoughts on further tests I could run? I'll probably throw it into another rig and see if same thing happens.

Testing it in another machine is the best thing you can do to troubleshoot, in my opinion.

Perhaps try a stress test on it: Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
