I'm in Toronto so probably. I'll get the inside dusted out and check nearby.Is there a repair shop nearby which would have a GPU they could throw in to see if it has same errors? or another PC they can put your GPU in to test same in another PC.
Without throwing money at new parts randomly, this is the best idea I can think of.
This... actually wouldn't shock me for a couple of reasons:IRQ errors are rare for nvidia driver based errors. I have said that. It could well be the ram on the GPU all we know.
- Geometry corruption and artifacting in WoW when in "optimal power" mode. Consistent corruption of data resident in memory would suggest problems with that specific part of physical memory, no?
- The "Shader Header ##" errors. I actually Googled this specific error and a good number of results pointed towards faulty VRAM. Naturally, since VRAM operations are far more commonplace when gaming, this produces a problem, which leads into...
- ... When the driver tries to map this memory as a page, it runs into the corruption, which makes it dump the data it was going to write in a mapped page of system memory. Windows no likey, since it's trashing memory it shouldn't be. Crash.
