PC won't shut down, black screen.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
SO my friend has been having trouble installing the nvidia drivers because the PC wont restart or shut down properly. He says black screen shows up after the "shutting down" screen and then PC is on, and theres a black screen.
He's using Vista 64. Q8300. 8GB DDR2.
anyway to fix it.
4-year build.

Remove all the Nvidia drivers, and restard, try again. Make sure your downloading the latest drivers from Nvidia's site.

Sigh. If people google'd everything there would be no point for this forum. Personally, if you're going to tell people to google it then you need to bounce.
