My System Specs


Ok here it goes.

A while ago, i upgrade from a 8500GT to 8800GS on the 720BE system. So i installed it and updated the rig with the newest NVidia drivers 195.XX.

While gaming COD4/Dirt2 the computer will lock up and black screen. Out from the speakers is this annoying screeching sound.

720BE: <40*C
8800GS: ~55*C

I've tried many other "stable" drivers (ie: 185.XX) but the issue still exists.
