Black Screens and Driver Crashes

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Recently I started getting BSODs and I reset my BIOS settings to optimized defaults. Since then I have been having problems with my graphics card. (BSODs fixed though)

After logging into windows, after less than a minute generally, the screen will go black briefly and then it will come back with a message saying the display driver crashed and has recovered.

I don't even have to do anything to get this error and after a few times of it happening the screen goes black for good and I have to restart via the button. I have re-installed drivers completely (clean install) and tried changing some BIOS settings to no luck.

Because it has happened since i reset BIOS it makes me think it can be fixed in BIOS.

Can anyone please give me some advice?

Thanks.

Have you tried updating your Mobos bios? Might be a long shot considering everything was stable before from the sound of it. I would try and see if updating your mobos bios fixes anything. Other then that, have you made any recent changes regarding your PC? Large changes like new video card for instance? wink.gif

BIOS is up to date right now, and no I have had this computer for a while no unchanged.

I moved my graphics card to the next PCIe slot down, which is only 8x but I figured that with gen 3 it shouldn't matter much.

It seems to work now but performance seems a little lower, but I am going to test more.
