Installing SSD, several questions - Page 6

post #51 of 125
Thread Starter 
OH FOR GOODNESS SAKE COME ON! You have GOT to be kidding me!

After installing a ton of Windows updates, I reboot and it's the same problem I was having last time - it goes to boot, then the screen goes black & the monitor into standby and the PC remains on, but idle.

Did this when realising I had the Windows CD in and boot order set to CD, but now have removed CD and same problem!

This is a joke, right?

EDIT: If it helps, I can boot into safe mode just fine.

If you can boot into safe mode ok then it is likely a driver issue. Have you installed your video card drivers ?

No I have not yet installed my video card drivers. I installed a load of updates, 83 to be exact, as reccomended by Windows update. I also installed three optional updates that included a driver update for my ethernet.

I'm uploading a YouTube video in case its of any help at all, and if you can stand my awful voice alongside my annoying use of the word "peripheral" instead of "mouse".

Never had this but I can think of 2 things. Either it's something to do with video drivers or with BIOS. In safe mode, uninstall video drivers and try to reboot. If it doesn't help, try resetting BIOS to manufacturer's setting and then setting SATA mode to AHCI again.

But to be honest, not sure.

Well, as I said, it's never a very good idea to install drivers from Windows Update. I only recommended installing Service Pack 1 and then drivers from Gigabyte website or CD. You can install the rest of updates after drivers from Gigabyte.

Having said that I do recall one of the "updates" to be a generic video driver. How do I go about removing this - or is it best to install the full graphics driver from the AMD site?

I have never had this problem ever before. I'm really worried that this is going nowhere and I will have spent a grand total of £200+ on broken hardware complete with the possibility of damaging the rest of my system.

Anybody for a third-time-lucky Windows re-install?

I thought it best to install updates and THEN SP1. Obviously not.

In general I would do the following to remove some factors.

1.Reset CMOS ( To reset BIOS )
2.Go into BIOS and make sure the SATA is set to AHCI
3. Make sure SATA is NOT set to RAID mode

That would be the BIOS sorted. If it continues it is a software related issue. You have to be very careful and watch exactly what you are installing from windows update. Never just hit ok.

SP1 has most of the older updates so it's safe to go with it first. And get the video driver from AMD, yes.

P.S. got the same mouse and keyboard

They are a great combination

Half way through Windows Install #3. I think whne I'm done I will write a book about how to install an SSD. The blurb will read; "Requires patience. Several Windows 7 installs and a whole lot of faith".

It sounds like a display issue to me because the other equipment worked fine etc and PC sounded exactly as if it were idle on the desktop.
