Nvidia Open GL error 7 message

Recommended Posts

I used to have a NVIDIA GeForce 9600, and never had an SL problem with it, but now after formating my PC I upgraded to a GT 630. At first what I noticed is that I only got a little increase in performance, I could play with the same previous settings I was using, but a bit faster. And  then I started to get this annoying Open GL error 7, sometimes only seconds after logging in. This is looks like what I am experiencing:

Artefact Rendering...NOT

It starts with random object's textures looking glitchy, and then weird shapes starts to pop up and I crash. My screen turns black and I get an "error 7" message. Before SL crashes, if I open up Chrome, the pages get filled with weird textures, and I never got any problems with multitasking while in SL before. 

I spent the whole day yesterday trying to fix it. At first I updated my graphic card to the latest driver, and nothing. I also updated my motherboard, nothing again. I've changed the 'Power Managment Mode' from the NViDIA's control panel from 'Adaptative' to 'Prefer Maximum Performance', and still got code error 7. Then I turned off 'Threaded Optimization', also in NVIDIA's control panel and no sign of change. Following other forums discussions about this, I added 'TdrDelay8' to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Control\GraphicsDrivers with regedit, and after it also failed I added 'TdrDdiDelay15', with no results too.

I don't know what else to do. After updating the motherboard it seems it was taking longer to crash, but it happened anyway. I tried Singularity Viewer, and while I got the glitchy textures, I didn't crashed. Earlier today I got the same texture glitches on Google Maps, yet it was working perfectly fine yesterday.

I checked a table of video cards ranked by performance on the Passmark web site and found that a GT630 scores 738 and a 9600GT scores 750. That's not a typo, the 9600 scored higher than the newer card.

I used a 630 for a while with sl so know from experience that it will work but never had any of those errors.

Have you tried posting about the error on Nvidia forums Lisa?

Yeah, zacly. It's easy to see when you forget the generational number but look at the model: the old card was a x6xx, the new one only a x3x. Sorry to say but that's no upgrade.
