Windows 7: CRASH when try to play a game with STEREO 3D enabled

CRASH when try to play a game with STEREO 3D enabled

Hi all.
I'm new to the forums,so sorry if anything is wrong.

I just bought a brand new computer,just to play with 3d vision glasses,but I'm having problems to play.

After a fresh install of Win7 64 bits,I installed the latest Nvidia drivers for my graphics card and 3d vision.

If i try to play the game with Stereoscopic 3D OFF,there is no problem at all.

But if I turn Stereoscopic 3D ON on the NVIDIA CONTROL PANEL(and doesnt matter if I set to 3d vision discover or the real 3d vision) the game crashes almost immediately when gamplay starts.

I tried to Hide Stereoscopic 3d effects when game starts,but it crashes anyway.
Sometimes it just crashes and by crtl+alt+del I can get out,but sometimes I get BSOD.

It only crashes IN GAME,I can use Windows with no problems.

There are two more things: if I set the game to a low resolution, like 640 x 480 and turn the Anti-Aliasing off,the game runs with no problem!
And I also can use 3d vision(glasses),works ok.

I tried with the drivers 1.11 and 1.13 and nothing solved.

Do you guys think it might be a hardware problem?My VGA is new.

I took the Graphics Card to a friends house who have almost an identical system,and the game crashed there too.
I have a XFX GTX295 single PCB and he have a EVGA GTX295 double PCB.
We both use Win7 64bits and he can play with his card with 3d vision with no problems at all.

Can somebody help me?
This is driving me nuts!

Thanks in advance!

Can you try to get your friend's EVGA GTX295 double PCB to your place and try it in your PC?

If it does not crash, then its your XFX card's fault.

If it still crashes, post your full system specifications by completing your profile in User Control Panel. Or you can post them here.

Hope this helps.

Windows 7 64bits

Hi Dragor,thanks for your reply.
I'll try to bring my friends card to my place to test it here,but I dont know if it will be possible.

But if it helps,my system is:
Corsair 850w power supply, mobo Asus Rampage II Gene, Intel Core i7 920, 3x2gb Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600, XFX GTX295, 2x WD 500GB.

What makes me wonder is that if I set the game to a low resolution, like 640 x 480 and turn the Anti-Aliasing off,the game runs with no problem!
And I also can use 3d vision(glasses),works ok.

With 3d ENABLED:
High resolution with no AA = crash
Low resolution with AA = crash
It only works with a crap resolution and AA off

High Res with AA = works

I had the same problem with games crashing under nVidia 3D - particularly games through Steam. One workaround is to start the game with 3D off, alt-tab to the desktop, enable 3D, then alt-tab back into the game. That avoids the crashes
