So two weeks ago I was playing Duke Nukem Forever when my PC crashed – ever since I’ve been unable to boot past the Windows loading screen.
After various testing, and eventually getting fed up and passing it over to my mate, I’ve found that the graphics card seems to have fried itself. Although it can load in safe mode it seems that running on “all cylinders” just isn’t possible.
Looking around on the net there seems to be a pattern of some nVidia graphics cards burning out when running the 275.33 build (the latest) drivers. The next step is to RMA it to get a replacement.
Unfortunately this is holding up the next release of ThinkTwit which is nearly done. It’s quite a big code change and so warrants a new minor release. Hopefully in by the end of August it will be complete, just before I head off to Tunisia for a holiday with my girlfriend 🙂
