Newest Nvidia Driver brakes Zotac 9300 on Windows and Linux!
  1 / 2    
hi there,

I just wanted to make a thread here so that maybe some nvidia dev sees the problem.

On linux the nvidia driver does not work since 270.41.19, tried also the newest 275.09.07. The nvidia kernel modul is always crashing.

It seems to be only related to zotac 9300 gpus on their Zotac 9300-ITX motherboards.

On windows nvidia drivers > 260.99 generating BSODs on these GPUs.

I just link you to nvnews forum, there are full bugreports. Go here: [url="http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showpost.php?p=2433058&postcount=1"]http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showpost.php?p=2433058&postcount=1[/url]

For the BSODs in Windows, see this thread: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1111996&page=53

What I want to know is: Is there someone at nvidia working on this? Will it be fixed in next release? Or do we have to throw away our motherboards? I really would like to see an answer here - I don't want to wait 6 month or so just to get to know that it won't be fixed and we can finally put our 9300-ITX motherboards in the can.

Thx!

Question: If I use GNU objdump to disassemble nv-kernel.o & look at the offending code, would that be a license violation? I know we can't have the source -- but if we did, we'd have this fixed by now. :)

Question: If I use GNU objdump to disassemble nv-kernel.o & look at the offending code, would that be a license violation? I know we can't have the source -- but if we did, we'd have this fixed by now. :)

Hi Scott,

I really thought that, too. I think nvnews is more linux based than this one here, but you find a few linux topics here.
I really really hope that nvidia fixes that thing soon - on linux you can't switch back to an older driver because of new Xorg server - so at this point under linux all zotac 9300 are pretty useless. (if you need vdapu/audio through hdmi/3d).

I wonder that no windows user posts something - I found few reports on internet on that.

I wonder why no windows user posts something - I found few reports on internet on that. (they can just stuck at < 260.99 .. so not a "real" problem at all).

Hey now, I'm a Windows, Mac, and Linux user :-) but I have 2 Zotac 9300's running windows 7, one x86 and one x64. And my workaround is to stick at < 260.99. I started a ticket here at NVIDIA and contacted Zotac, but so far I have not heard anything. I would really love to have continued driver support...both boxes are for HTPCs, so sticking with what I have is okay, but I would like to know what sort of problem this is as it may change my mind in future purchases.

Hey thx for your report, my zotac 9300 is also in a htpc, but pretty useless at the moment because of those problems. /blarg.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':/' />

I'm not sure if the board revision has anything to do with this. I have the first and second revision of the board and have these driver problems with both. There are others out there (on the avsforums and mediacenter forums) that don't have the BSOD issues, but I haven't asked around to see if they have the later revisions of the MOBO. Sucks regardless. I stick with <260 because even though the 260 drivers don't barf, they do kill 5.1 and 7.1 LPCM output over HDMI. No bueno.

I have also run into this. Ubuntu 11.04 uses Xserver 1.10 which is only supported by the 270.xx and 275.xx series drivers, yet all of these crash on this board making Ubuntu 11.04 a complete non-starter for me.

If there is anything I can do to help resolve this problem, I would be happy to help.

Same problem here. I am running Windows 7 64bit and all drivers above 260.99 are causing a bluescreen during installation.
It would be interesting to know if also x32 users and XP/Vista users are experiencing this problem.

Hi everyone,

I don't know if this adds anything useful to the debate; but it's not just itx boards that have the problem; I have an u-atx Zotac 9300 board and any drivers beyond 260.99 cause BSOD on installation.

In my case it's Win7 64 bit...

Thanks for confirming that the issue also affects other boards.

I was thinking about all this last night, doing a little research, and I started wondering is it wrong to be even trying to install the latest geforce driver package on these boards...? It seems to me it's not the right software for this board...

Isn't the correct approach to be installing the latest n-force package instead? The n-force package contains its own graphics driver specifically for the 9300 IGP hardware, so is that not the end of the story?

I installed the latest n-force package last night with no problems.

Perhaps somebody could explain if I'm missing something here... Does the geforce driver package give me something extra that the graphics driver within the n-force package doesn't?
