    nvidia fx3700 driver problems asus p6t ws

    HELP!!!

    I won't bore you with the details thus far but I have a quadro fx3700 card that is not happy in my new build.  I have an ASUS P6T WS board running an i7 920 chip, running vista x64.  If I put the it in the first pciex16 slot the system is unstable and it will not work with the 169.47 driver.  If I put into the second pciex16 slot it will take the 169.47 driver and runs well but the system will not boot reliably.

    I have a suspicion that the card is faulty - but if it works occaisionally ....

    1st question - are there any known issues with the 169.47 driver running vista x64?

    2nd question - are there any known issues running the quadro fx3700 on the asus p6t board?

    if i'm getting different behaviours in what should be identical slots - is there a registry issue??

    I had thought that the 3700 was the best card for the MC 3.5 is it?  Or should I go with the 1700? or the 1800?

    any advice greatfully recieved.

    Now the card has stopped working all together in the second slot.  The board has a device to display error messages - it shows 2A which is 'initiate VGA BIOS' so presumably it can't read the card BIOS.

    do I throw the whole thing out of the window??

    I'm using an FX 3700 with an Asus P5W DH Deluxe - very effective with MC 3.5.1. The problems you are describing don't sound like driver issues - they sound like an incompatibility between your FX 3700 and your Mobo - which I doubt is the case. Perhaps your FX 3700 is faulty, or your mobo. Do you have any way to test you mobo with another graphics card (and your FX 3700 with another system).

    Oh - and one last thing - you did connect the special 6-pin power connector to your FX 3700, right? Without it you'll get all sorts of odd problems.

    May be you can A/B test the card on other system.

     

    I have had an issue with the Quadro FX3700 before too, one 3700 stop working all of a sudden. Got a new one working for few weeks and all of a sudden... it wont boot up again, I put it in the 2nd PCIe slot, it will boot

    but we were unable to install the video driver (we've re-install the system). After a few boots, we were unable to boot into windows :o , so we've got a new one again ... and hopefully it is working quite well ..  

     

    We are working on a XW8600.

    Probs as this has been reported in other threads, seems that the 3700 has been affected by that Nvidia bad chip error a couple of years ago
