Win 81pro crashed while installing updated graphics driver, no display on login. I need some help.

ARGGHHHH

while doing a clean install of an nVidia GTX WHQL driver my system crashed, now it has a black screen after windoze starts.

I booted from a win81 dvd and the typical repair didn't work.

If I try to get to the System Image Recovery it complains that I need to select an operating system.

I cannot get to safe boot mode.

I can get to a command prompt when booting from a win8 installer disk, and I can cd to the C drive and see my files.

from there I tried to enable safe boot.

I tried using bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy"

I tried to install a driver from a CD or DVD that came with my graphics card and it sortof felt like it worked but ...

This is win81 pro so I tried to RDP in from my macbook and the first time there was an error dialog that popped up but it disconnected me before I could read it.

I can ping it.

I can see an cursor arrow (mouse pointer).

What options do I have?

system is in my sig.

Pull the graphics card, revert to onboard graphics and clean stuff up?

I'm heading that direction pretty soon.

I can get to BIOS and boot from the Win81 disk.

If anyone cares, here were the steps to fix. There was alot of other trial and error I won't describe.

With the GTX 970 in, set BIOS to integrated GFX. Power down, Connect Monitor to integrated GFX port.
Remove GTX 970
Boot, let windows start.
Go To Device Manger, "View" hidden devices.
I wasn't able to delete the nVidia driver, and got an error like "cannot delete device, decedents refused request"
But, I could roll back the driver, and the delete it.
I deleted all of the other nVidia sound drivers like Miracast and MWave.
rebooted, (card still out) verified I could get into windows.
shutdown, reinstalled card, video still set to integrated GFX
windows found the device, auto installed a driver.
I re-ran the installer and it succeeded.
Rebooted one more time still on integrated GFX,
Shutdown, set default graphics adapter to Slot 1, moved video cable back and finally it is back working.

Crashing while installing a driver tends to be a hardware issue. Could be an unstable overclock or even a unstable video card (which could be caused if you videocard was also overclocked at the time).

Windows itself is pretty rock solid, so unless something in your system was causing it to crash. It should not have happened.

Thanks.

I guess it could be an OC thing. Maybe next time I update drivers I'll boot to my backup setting with nearly stock clocks.

CPU is OC at 4.6Ghz and it has been rock solid stable in games, stress tests and other updates until this one. Graphics card is stock.

I didn't catch the error when it blue screened.

Anyway, I learned a few things but I would have preferred to not have had to biggrin.gif
