    Hi Guys,

    Just installed my new Asus GT 630 2Gb video card in the lounge based PC. (The old HD5550 is now in the server).

    Setup went fine and picture looks better BUT it crashes the system when trying to play full HD. I have downloaded latest drivers from nVidia website (version 306.??) I tried it first in MP with standard def and it worked fine, so then went to play some HD and the system just shut down; no BSOD, just stopped and started to reboot. o_O

    After rebooting, tried again in WMP and SD stuff was fine, 720p stuff was fine, but full HD just crashed the system again.

    Is there something I'm missing??

    Oh it looks like the amd drivers don't really away ;)

    Have you reinstall Windows?

    Hi Xetic,

    Have you reinstall Windows?

    I really don't want to yet, this PC is still acting as the main MP Server and is the HTPC in the lounge. :eek:


    I don't really want to start playing with it just yet. I know I will have to when I get the server up and running properly.

    I did uninstall the ATI drivers - maybe they are still there and are confusing the system?

    Uninstall the nvida driver then...
    Maybe... let clean the registry with CCleaner

    And reinstall nvidia driver

    Clearly, something isn't happy - MP keeps shutting down too.... o_O:confused:

    I am going to a clean install, I may as well. MP will not run, cannot watch HD....

    I think I'll have it all done in 1.5 hours! Just in time for when the GF gets home and wants to watch TV. :whistle:

    Hmmm... a clean install of Win7 and clean install of MP and still the same problem.

    When I start live HD TV the system just shuts down, also when I start recorded HD TV. This happens too in WMP11.

    This is the card >>here<<

    Maybe I should downgrade the drivers?? I'm really lost now :cry:

    There is a 750W PSU in the PC, and there are no PCIe plugs for additional power on the card. I did check this as I was installing it.

    I'm going to remove the latest nVidia drivers and reinstall using the disc that came with the card. This is now fumbling in the dark...

    Strange. The logs show no error and things should be alright. Have you tried another skin/theme instead WMC, e.g. Win10? I don't really expect a different result but worth a try. EDIT: I vaguely remember a problem with the dynamic refresh rate changer. Can you try to temporarily deactivate and try again? The other thing is the...

    On my Sony TV, one of the HDMI sockets supports "Audio Return Channel" (ARC). I think that this means that I could connect the system like this: HTPC > (HDMI) > TV > (HDMI/ARC) > AV-AMPLIFIER > LOUDSPEAKERS If your TV supports HDMI/ARC, re-arranging the connections as above might bypass the problem. The disadvantage is that it...

Problem: The video playback seems not to be started, the picture comes approx. 30 seconds after the sound is coming. Not out of sync but very late. If you stop the playback in this time it...
