NVIDIA nForce 730i (9300/9400) issues with Windows 7
May 15, 2009 - 1:13 AM - by freecableguy
So I decided to take the plunge today and upgrade my HTPC from Windows Vista Ultimate SP1 (x64) to Windows 7 Ultimate RC1 (x64) thinking that there would be no issues seeing as how I'd already had the OS on my main rig for a couple of weeks with no complaints.

Boy was I wrong.

The upgrade on the MS side was smoooooth. Unfortunately immediately following the upgrade I noticed that no matter my display settings (resolutions, refresh rate, color depth, driver version installed, etc) that there were multicolored horizontal lines flashing across my Aquos 42" LCD (connected via a SONY HDMI receiver).

With Vista x64 the sound and video worked flawlessly over a single HDMI cable connection to my receiver. Now, with Windows 7 x64 there's an interruption to the audio/video stream that causes these lines to flash every half a second in random locations at higher resolutions, and at lower resolutions the whole display just flashes in and out.

If you're going to ask was I using the latest Windows 7 drivers direct for the NVIDIA site, then the answer's yes.

One last piece of the puzzle - when I installed a discrete graphics card (a spare ASUS N9600GT MATRIX I has laying around) the problem went away entirely. Obviously the fault lies with the integrated graphics/audio on the ASUS P5N7A-VM (NVIDIA nForce 730i/9300). I was really hoping everything was going to just work. Oh, well.

If you know anything about this and/or have a fix, let me know and I'll post it here for all to see.

Itching for a Core i7 920 D0 (SLBEJ) step CPU?

Why wait for the item to finally arrive in retail? Why pay tax? Why pay shipping? Why get gouged? Have you checked eBay? This guy is offering guaranteed D0-step 920's for just $299.99 out the door:

UPDATE (5/13/09)

The seller has this incredible deal on i7-920 D0's back up! HURRY!!!

Additionally, I have been informed he will handle direct sales outside of eBay if the buyer would like to save an additional $10, bringing the cost to just $290.00.
