I can't play any 3d games with my Geforce 9600GT.
I have the Geforce 9600GT 512 MB and I'm using the 171.06 drivers on Ubuntu/Gutsy 7.10 (Gnome with Compiz)
I can't play any 3d games native or under wine.
As soon as a game starts my whole system does a hard reboot. I tried disabling my secondary display, I tried Xnest and I tried several different games including Nexuiz, Tremulous and CSS under wine with the same result.
As soon as the game starts the CPU climbs to 100% and the system does a hard reboot within about 10 seconds.
I'm about to try again after disabling Compiz and I will post but I expect a similar result.
The logs in /var/log/ don't say anything related to the crash.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, right now I'm writing this off as a driver malfunction.
