NVIDIA Investigating TDR Issues

A post by NVIDIA tech support to the NVIDIA Forums looking to address driver restart issues connected with the latest GeForce reference drivers (thanks Mashiki). While noting that they have "been able to reproduce the major Battlefield 3 issues and have marked this as must fix for the upcoming driver in November," they have not been able to reproduce TDR (driver reset) issues, and are offering to pay roundtrip shipping to evaluate cards from users in the U.S. Here's the deal:

R280.xx or later Firefox/IE9 TDR issue - We have ordered some of the retail graphics cards that have been mentioned in these threads to resolve this issue. However it would be of great help to us if anyone who is facing this problem can send us their graphics card to diagnose internally at our Santa Clara office since the cards we have been tested so far do not seem to show the TDR issues end users are reporting in this forum. We can pay for shipping both ways and I can probably get some free game codes to offer you for your time. Please PM if you would be willing to do so. You must be in the USA however since international shipping can complicate things.

I have a much larger issue with my system that I still haven't solved. It will reboot every time it goes into a power-saving mode, even if that power-saving mode is just shutting off the monitors.

This may be too obvious, but have you tried just changing your power options so that nothing ever shuts down?

In any case, if I had to guess, it's either a wonky Windows install, a bad PSU, or a bad mobo. Helpful, huh?


Reinstalled Windows once already. Although I had to format the HDD to do so. Remember the issues I had with installing things? That included a new Windows install - it froze at the same spot three times. Which got me back to thinking HDD.

Yeah, thought about the PSU but it wouldn't necessarily explain the install issue, and would maybe be something that appeared when I was gaming and put the system under a heavy load.

Mobo seems kind of likely, but it's hard to tell and this isn't annoying enough for me to swap the mobo. Doing that sounds miserable.

It's so weird in that I've never before found an issue I couldn't fix, let alone even diagnose. Every symptom seems to point to a different component, which does lead back to mobo but nothing specifically screams "mobo."

Whatever. I built this thing from $800 of parts heavily on sale at Microcenter a year ago. I'll let it ride another year and build a new one. The crashing wouldn't bug me much if I didn't seem to lose my cookies every time, forcing me to relog in to every site. Like here. Everything will be newest-first upside down when I return after a crash.
