PC rebooting, need help.

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, first of all, thanks for reading this and I would love to extent an apology for any misspelling I WILL do smile.gif
This ain't my nature language and I'm on my way to learn it. said that, let's go ahead on what's matter.

System Specs:
X58 Mobo
Nvida 480 GPU
CPU 920 Water Cooled
9 x 1333 RAM

I had been having some troubles since I installed the 314.22 Nvidia driver update couple of weeks ago, causing couple of driver crashing at day.
I tried to reinstall the drivers but the system kept doing it, I even tried clean-install and didn't work, searching the web found out many people was having the same trouble with this drivers so I took anought.

I was expecting for new drivers to release so I can jump into it so today I went to nvidia page and download different drivers: 320.14 hopping this would solve the problem, since this started the moment I ended installing the previous driver mentioned.

Once I get this new beta drivers installed as regular my PC restarted by itself, now I can't boot in Normal Mode; some times does make his way to the desktop and reboots but most the time I can't even reach the desktop, now it shows dead pixels-weird red squared dots at the boot-in, I have no problems in Safe and/or Network mode so my guess goes to the GPU.

In safe mode I made it to access to the Thermal Control, and 3 ambient sensors I have state the same 29* so don't think is over heating, even pre-set the fans to 70% just in case and tried Normal Mode with no luck.

Any idea?
Suggestions?
I hope I don't have to replace my GPU since, well, is not a right-economical-time and I need my pc so I can keep working and they are not cheap.

Thanks, any help will be appreciated.

boot into safe mode. - yes it is all you get . .
download and install driver fusion
uninstall the graphics drivers through the windows control panel. - Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features
run driver fusion and select nvidia graphics driver (only) it will ask you to reboot, before you do make sure C:\NVIDIA is deleted (it ought to be empty)
reboot - windows will use the generic vga driver, then reinstall 320.14

hopefully that will get you somewhere.

Was doing this, after uninstall the nvidia drivers and delete manually every record (Even RegEdit) the VGA windows application updated the drivers automatically to 311.06 an older version.
Going to try luck rebooting this way, if no luck I will try full instructions given tomorrow, it's 2:15am.

I do appreciate your help, thanks smile.gif

Didn't work, I make to boot in normal mode with no drivers.
Once I install them the issue persist, can't boot again once drivers are installed.

there is a lot to do . .sorry no fix first thing;

did you try swapping cable to the GTX 260?

you remember what driver worked best? 314.07 ???

do the voodoo dance again of uninstalling - using the driver cleaner - then reinstalling with 314.07 or an older driver, you can find them on the nvidia site

you may also have a conflict in the windows registry that is causing a problem. try using Ccleaner AFTER you uninstall the drivers and reboot but BEFORE you install them again.

i think you are using the GTX 480 as the main gpu, so can try using only the gtx 260. you can also try reinstalling windows and starting over from scratch. hopefully it won't come to that.

sorry i have not solved the problem for you . .yet.

oh, and when you install the drivers, select CUSTOM and UNCHECK the driver update . .causes problems.

No longer have this card.

310.90 early this year, yah that was my first attempt, went back to when it was working fine.

Also did RegEdit clean, manually and software based.


Just notice all my Nvidia stuff used to be at C:/ Program Files (x86)/ Nvidia Corporation.
Since the last update they went to C:/ Nvidia

Just customized the drivers to go to the first folder mentioned, also windows is trying to automatically update my driver so I might try what you suggested, uncheck auto-update.


crossing fingers.

AH!

thats a bit different -nvidia also has an update feature- uncheck recommended updates in:
Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Windows Update\Change settings

windows updates are horrible for hardware.

No luck :/
can't boot as long as the drivers (Any) are installed.


Edit: Now is giving me blue screen everytime I boot with drivers: 0x0000007F
If not wrong that's a hardware failure, in other words, GPU fried. But I'm not an expert on this.

Edit: Need to find a second card to test my rig so I can see if are really the drivers or it was a coincidence or if is the GPU itself.
unlucky me, I don't know any other person who can borrow it tongue.gif

if it only happens in safe mode, maybe not. if you have a overclock on the cpu set it back to normal. them try memtest+ to test the memory.

if it still happens with the normal cpu and memory tests ok, then its looking bad for the gpu . . sorry.

Seems it's a hardware issue, I just got an old ATI card for cheap locally so I can test different card.
everything works great, no crash, no rebooting, no errors.

I installed and re installed nvidia drivers so many times that right now I don't think it was the problem, did recovery and why not that I will say it was a coincidence.
I think it's time to upgrade to a better card.

Thank you very much for your assistance.
As for now, need to look the best setup under $400 that works great for rendering, maybe 580?
