Which is why we are here in the first place.

[edit] always remember why we are here, if XP can get the card to run with 3D then I doubt it's power requirements. Because regardless of OS 3D is 3D and it'll suck the power when it wants. But different OS's talk to the cards differently, which can cause conflicts and our lovely BSOD.
Not if bios is up to date, proper chipset drivers are installed and then proper video driver is installed.

If it works in XP there is no hardware problem. If it were a hardware problem all we'd have to do to pinpoint that would be strip the computer of all parts but the HDD/CPU/RAM/Video all the minimums. Run a game in XP for 30+ min or do a stress test for the video. If nothing happens he's got no hardware problem. Just because it's XP vs Vista (or win7) they address the same hardware parts of the card, the only difference is how they do it. which is the calls they use to run the card. This is the beauty of universal hardware.

Well al the cables 6 and 8 pin connectors are straightly connected to the psu, in windows xp i don't have any problems regarding the card, but clearly and i'm very sure of this the problem is the drivers. i'm trying to install the lowest version of drivers i can possibly find.
people told me 186.34 should work, but i still have the problem.

You might have to wait untill Nvidia addresses this issues. It might be something to do with the fact Win7 just came out, I'd be searching the Nvidia forums as I said earlier. Remember, win7 came out less than a month ago... Their bound to have problems.

I doubt it. We've been beta testing 7 since last year. If it was an NVidia issue, they'd have sorted it by now.

Yeah but if you've been beta testing since last year, how many of them were running the up to date build? And how many were running the duel 9800 cards with the RTM? How many run it now? Maybe the drivers a year ago had the problem fixed, but how many times do new drivers cause new problems? Either he rolls back untill it works, waits for a new update or what? Get a new card? If everything is up to date then I don't see many other options.

Unless it's something he could fix in the driver, but if it won't boot it just bsod's then...? Try installing vista w/o the nvidia drivers. just use ms's built in drivers, do they work?

i tried downgrading several drivers from nvidia, i don't have any luck with it.
some give the eror alot faster then other drivers but still the problem remains.
also ms build in drivers give me the same problem...
i agree with waiting until either ms or nvidia comes up with a sollution, ill stick to XP for the moment.

Windows 10 Pro x64, Arch Linux

This error is caused by windows7's recovery tool "Timeout detection recovery"
It tries to reset the driver when it detects an error.
These errors are less frequent on 180.xx drivers
Possible causes are bad RAM and incorrect settings in BIOS
Your mainboard could also be failing

It could also be related to incorect ram and graphics card voltage.
Did you overclock your system??

Well my computer is under a year old. So if my mainboard starts failing that would be a bit fast no? haven't checked the ram yet, but as i said i'm running Windows xp at the moment and i never had any problems.
but if it's happening since vista, and there still isn't a solid fix for it, i'm afraid ill have to stick with xp
my computer isn't overclocked in any way
