Windows 7 Won't Boot - GTX 570

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all! New here, but after googling quite a bit, I haven't been able to come up with anything.

So anyways, I just installed an EVGA GTX 570 SC into my new build. Unfortunately, whenever I try to install any nVidia drivers, she just won't boot into Windows. It gets to the "Starting Windows" screen, then the screen turns black, and I must restart. After uninstalling the drivers from safe mode, the computer will boot into Windows just fine, though obviously I don't want to run it like this forever.

I have tried the 266.35, 266.44, 265.90, and 263.09 drivers...all to no avail. Sometimes after installing new drivers, I'll be able to boot into Windows for a bit, but once I shut down, I can't get back into the OS. frown.gif

If anyone has any answers or suggestions, I'm open to all. Thanks, and I appreciate it!

Sounds like you're part of the Nvidia 400/500 series lockup club.
Certain 400/500 series cards won't work with certain motherboards. Lots of people having your same problem.
