  • billy,

    Can you post some information about your computer? You can find this information in the Direct X Diagnostic Tool:

    Click on Start
    Click on Run
    Type in: dxdiag (In Vista, type dxdiag in the search field)
    Hit Enter or OK

    Click on the Save All Information button at the bottom, and create a dxdiag text file, and copy and paste it all here.

  • billy,

    Could you try reverting to an older Nvidia video driver release?

  • Teknykk,

    It's not really a "Beta" issue at all. It can happen to anyone with any card at any time.

    Take a look at that thread on Nvidia's forum for a discussion/description on what the error means, what might cause it, and what you might do to resolve it.
