I think we have exactly the same problem when reading your description of the crash.
What I did now is:
- Erased all NVidia related with uninstall and then with Driver
Fusion. Then installed the driver package from the link of this thread.
- Also checked that my BIOS is the latest M3A78 motherboardīs version 2301. Changed AVG to Microsoft Security Essentials.
- Ran SFC /SCANNOW without any problems.
- Ran Driver Verifier check instructed in other thread here. It gave Blue Screen before logging on, issue was Daemon Tools. I then updated the DT but I can take it also off if it seems itīs causing the thing. I just think that is not the problem.
After these things I havenīt had BSOD yet, but it has jammed the system still occasionally.
I could do the Memtest also properly. Still when two guys have replaced ATI Radeon 4830 with GeForce 640 and having issues I think the chance is low that we both have bad memory (but still possible ofcourse).
How about the fact that GeForce has DDR3 memory in it, but otherwise I have DDR2 because the motherboard supports only that. There is also the fact that GeForce is PCIe 3 but the motherboard has PCIe 2.
It should be backwards compatible and mostly is because itīs working fine except the random crashes. But not giving up yet to non-compatibility.
Iīll proceed too with running proper Memtests.
