Aurora R4 crashes when running intensive graphics

When trying to run games on my Aurora R4, I get 4 minutes (I've timed it) of gameplay before the display goes black on both monitors and the audio goes to static, and I have to hard reboot.

I'm running an Aurora R4 with 2 Nvidia 780s SLI'ed together, windows 7.

I have tried reinstalling the Dell.com suggested video drivers (332.10) after uninstalling the more recent Nvidia drivers, and still had the problem. I then reinstalled Nvidia's latest drivers, and still had the problem.

RE: Aurora R4 crashes when running intensive graphics

Hi,

Does this only happen when you have SLI enabled? Which BIOS version are you running?

I've currently got SLI disabled, still happens. BIOS is at A11.

Hi,

It sounds like a hardware problem. If your system is in warranty, send me your service tag in a PM for hardware assistance.
