PLZ 8800gt help!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,
I have an XFX8800gt i was using the stock nvidia drivers and playing a game when it artifacted and restarted my computer. I downloaded new forceware from Guru3D and restarted again, my card works until i get to the login screen on vista then my monitor stops getting signal. i restarted in safe mode and reinstalled the drivers then restarted in normal mode and the same thing happens at the login screen. so i started in safemode and instaled the nvidia drivers from their site but that doesnt work either. what should i do? i think it is a driver problem.
Thanks everyone

Did you uninstall the old drivers? If you didn't the drivers will conflict.

usually when it's artifacted and restarted by itself because of not enough power from power supply. check the power output first.
