Oh crap I did something stupid. (Need Help) (FIXED)

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hey so I ran driver sweeper but I made the stupid mistake of clicking reboot so my screen stays black. Is there any way to get into system restore??? Or am I screwed.


Update: I just switched back to my old hdmi to dvi cable and it booted up fine! Phew! Installing the drivers now.

The first mistake you made was using Driver Sweeper in the first place. Can you boot into safe mode?

Its not booting to safe mode. Maybe i'm doing it wrong? I hold f8 correct?
post #5 of 25
Yup, try one more time.
Quote:
If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you will need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.

I'm using an hdmi cable. would it make a difference to switch back to dvi?

If you have your CD as first boot device, throw in the OS disc and run a repair, if not, and you can get into bios, change it to boot cd first and try that. Repair should replace missing drivers.
