8800 GT BSOD in OpenGL Apps
Are the new Nvidia drivers crap with regards to opengl? I keep getting a BSOD with the nv4display after using lightwave (opengl 3d modeling program) for anywhere from 15-90 minutes.
Its fine browsing the web all day or playing games like dow 2 and lotro. But as soon as I mess around in lightwave it will bsod.
I really hope its not my 8800 gt going bad. As I'm about to be one of the est. 3 million statistic at the end of the month if I don't find work or congress gets its act together. So getting a new graphics card is out of the question. (Oh man a 5770 would be so nice... but so would more ram and a quad core)
After working with a lab filled with several hundred nvidias for a few years, I know at any time the gpu fan can break or come off, spelling eventual doom.
I really hope its just some driver shennanigans. I noticed it started when I began installing a bunch of games in the steam sale THQ pack. Something might have come up when the games try to reinstall direct x 9c over and over.
Help! I need to keep working on my 3d art portfolio.
