9800Pro Problem


May 27, 2003
Recently installed an AWI 9800Pro and started getting occasional Blue Screens when I shutdown. This only seems to occure if I overclock the GPU (Core/Memory 415/360 MHz). System gives an error message Page_Fault_in_Nonpaged_Area. Durning normal operation the card runs fine, no artifacts in 3D Mark 03. OK scores ~6000. Would guess that it is related to either the Power Supply or the Video Card. Noticed a little droop in the 12 supply when running 3D Mark looping demo ~200 mV.

I didn't have this problem with my 9600Pro.

Any thoughts?

Will be adding 2 120GB 7200RPM SATA Drives

It sounds like a power problem. My P4C800-E Deluxe would turn a 200mV 12v line droop into a 200mV vCore drop fairly often.
