Computer won't boot when nVidia drivers are installed

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello,


I've had problems with my computer for the past week.


When i boot, i can't get past the windows sign and it crashes, my screen goes black and my GPU fan is MAX speed.


I can boot fine in safe mode just fine.


I cleared my CMOS, unsocketed my GPU.
I reinstalled the drivers and it didn't work. Now i have reinstalled windows 7 and as soon as i instal the driver, it crashes.

I am out of solution


thanks!

Have you tried a reformat to completely rule out software conflict?
First, I would suggest testing the GPU in another system.

Stress the CPU and recheck the 12v. Make sure everything is connected correctly and use a known working outlet. Also, try a different power cable for good measure.

Check the PSU with a multimeter or psu tester, you really can't trust any voltages read by software.

Strange that a fresh install of win 7 didn't work, I have corrupted the 300 series nvidia drivers a few times & while I could never fix it by uninstalling, cleaning & reinstalling, a fresh windows install has worked every time...
Not sure how to help with this one.

I ran OCCT for almost 2 hours







i don't have a multimeter to do the testing here, i'll try to get a hand on one.

If I am reading that right, and it's reading 10.7 volts on the +12 rail, even if it's a software reading they usually aren't THAT far off - it's well worth going the mulltimeter path, at just under 11 volts, that could cause all sorts of issues if the voltage is dropping that far. Once you get the multimeter, get a reading at idle, then while running your stress tool.

So,

I finaly solved my problem. I took all my computer apart, cleaned every single thing and it worked just fine after. I still don't know what caused it, but it works fine now.





The 12V rail, got back a little higher, i have no clue why!



Thanks everyone who helped me!
