Video Driver Causes Blank Screen


Running w7 ult 64, just did complete install. Ati raedon 3200 chips integrated with motherboard. Have 3 3200 driver versions on computer (one from ms and two from ati) and have tried them all, when the 3200 drivers are installed the display goes to a solid - nothing showing- black screen. Have to disable ati drivers and use vga to get screen images. Have installed the v 9. 12 catalyst programs/drivers & the version which ati has for the motherboard.

This hardware was working in the vista home premium 64 version.

I'm out of ideas, any thoughts?

Screen Goes Blank

After i have updated my computer from xp to win7 i have been experiencing a strange thing. My screen goes blank after 60 seconds of inactivity.initially when it happened i saw that my graphic card driver (nvidia geoforce 8400gs) was not updated - which was also causing some blue screen errors. After i updated the drivers the blue screen error went away but the blank screen error sort of comes and goes. It stays for some time (a week or something) and then goes away for a month etc. Two reasons i could think of.

1. Power options - everything set to "never"
2. Graphics drivers - up to date

Any idea why i would be seeing this ?

Blank Screen After Upgrade

During the upgrade from vista ultimate to windows 7 ultimate the screen went blank so i am not even sure that win 7 installation was successful. As i could see nothing on the screen i waited 5 hours until my pc went absolutely quiet with no sign of installation activity. I then did a hard reboot. The pc powers up and powers down 3 times before staying on, but the screen remains blank as the monitor is in power saving mode. I have tried everything to get the monitor out of power saving mode but cannot change it.

This means that i cannot boot into any mode (safe mode included) as i have no monitor picture. I carried out the ~win advisor tests and removed all programs it suggested. The only thing i could not remove was the "ati catalyst control centre and install manager" each time i tried to remove them i got the message that setup.exe was not responding, so i could not remove them. How can i get my monitorto come on without being in power saving mode, and if not, is there any other way i can boot into safe mode which will switch the monitor on?

Blank Screen After Installing Win 7

I have been wrestling with windows 7 to get it to run on my new machine i just built, apparently i have the upgrade only version, so i had to install vista then windows 7, etc. Then when i got that running yesterday windows tells me my cd key, that i have physically in my hand, on the original box, is invalid. I check the error code online, find out that i need to call microsoft to activate it over the phone, because i have used it too many times in a certain time frame. All of these uses are re-formats by the way.

So, today when i tried to log into windows so i could get the error code window again, and make my phone call to microsoft my windows won't start. I get past the "windows is loading" screen, with the four floating balls that form the windows logo, and it loads my mouse pointer, and a black screen. And then, nothing. I let it sit for over an hour, still nothing, i try ctrl-alt-delete to get it working on something, maybe kick start the load, nothing. I loaded all fail safe settings in my bios and then ran it in safe mode, still the same result. I honestly have no idea where to go with this next.

Blank Screen On Restart With A Cursor Blinking

I have a inspiron 1545 and when i restart with a verizon wireless modem plugged in to a usb port & it gives me a blank screen with a cursor blinking in the top left corner. When i pull it out on restart it boots. However, when i start it with it plugged in it works fine. I know the problem is my computer because my wife has the same 1545 and no problem. I can work around by pulling it, on restart but it seems my computer has a problem.

Also, upon further testing it is not the verizon wireless modem only , that hanged up restart. It is the fact i have 2 modems plugged in. The other is a wireless logitech mouse. When i take either out restart works. So with both plugged in restart goes to a blank screen & when i only have one of them plugged in restart works. I have disabled the usb on boot sequence and it had no effect. Any ideas?

Blank Blue Screen - No Bios Error

I recently built myself a new computer. It's components are:-2 nvidia gtx470 connected via sli-core i7 930-3 3gb ddr3 ram sticks-asus p6x58d-e x58 r motherboard-antec|tp-750 750w rt power supply now, it's been running fine for the past 2 weeks. Perfectly, in fact. However my dad dragged me away on vacation to the dominican republic so i left the computer with my mom and grandma since they use it. Now, last night my mom told me that she got a problem. When she turned it on and tried to access her session she got a blank blue screen. No error messages, nothing.

I told her to hard restart it, and when she did it gave her the "windows shut down unexpectedly, start in safe mode or boot windows normally?" Message. When she told it to boot up normally, it was fine. I told her to restart it again to see if the bios would report any errors like it normally does when there's hardware failure but nothing came up. The more i think about it though, the less likely it seems like it'd be a hardware issue though, since this problem would've arisen much sooner since before i left i was playing alot of games, wouldn't it?

This morning when my grandmother turned on the computer again she got the same problem. I told her to hard reset it again, and once more it booted up normally after that. I had her run r-kill (which reported no malicious processes) and run malware bytes and microsoft security essentials. After that i'm going to have her insert the windows 7 disc to run a repair. What exactly is the problem though? Is there anything else that i should be doing?

Mouse Doesn't Move - Screen Goes Blank

Windows 7 ultimate 64bit seem to just 'lock up', by 'lock up' i mean the mouse (razer mamba) doesn't move, the keyboard (logitech g19)'s screen goes black, the 'windows key' doesn't work, the keys don't light up and alt+ctrl+del don't work, my game pad (logitech g13) doesn't work, webcam (logitech orb) doesn't work or light up.

I have tried as many things as i can think of, re-installing the os, putting my computer at stock settings (i had gpu, cpu and ram overclocked), re-installing the os, i have disabled the 'usb selective suspend setting' i have tried reverting to the vista 64bit drivers, 'checking' the computer memory, replacing the hard drive with a new one, tried doing this 'clean boot' thing, still no luck.

Pink Screen Video Error

After logging in, if i click on the start menu or if i right click on any of my programs, it causes a system error. Both monitors change into one blotchy color, usually pink and purple, though both monitors are different colors.

Here are my system specs
2 nvidia 280s sli
2. 83 ghz quad processor
4 gb ram
1100 watt power supply
Dual screens (dvi) on my primary card
2. 2tb hdd raid5
Saitek keyboard and command unit

I don't know if any of the above are not compatible with windows 7 and i know it is not my video cards. They are brand new cards and it did it before them when i had two 9800gx2 cards. I think that it is a windows driver, and i have updated all the drivers for the hardware to fit windows 7 32bit. Does anyone have any idea what may be causing this issue. I have googled it and there hasn't been a sufficient response to the one forum posting i did find.

Ok To Use Vista Video Driver?

I just did a clean install of win7 h. P. 64 bit on my dell 531s. The dell originally came with vista h. P. 32 bit. Win7 install went without any issues. Can i use vista video drivers with win7? The computer has onboard nvidia geforce 6150se nforce 430 video directx 9. 0 shader model 3. 0 graphics processing unit. Got that information from the sheet that came with the computer. I do have the original dell 531s driver and utilities dvd for "reinstalling dell insipron 531s computer software". Can i use this disc for the video drivers? I went to dell support page and using my service tag number, this particular nvidia driver is not listed.

Nvidia 9800 Gt Video Driver Crashes

I have downloaded and installed the latest, within the last two weeks, driver and it still crashes at least once or twice a day. I am running win 7 64 bit with 8 gigs of ram and plenty of hard drive space. When my machine reboots and it goes for the windows solution it won't even complete that part saying that i need to be connected to the internet. I am on a wifi constant connection and i leave everything on 24/7/365. I do reboot from time to time when loading software or for other reasons but this is ridiculous. If win 7 was designed by me it would fix these problems not run me around in circles.

Xfx Radeon 5850 - Your Video Card Is Missing A Driver

I have an xfx radeon 5850 as my video card. It is fully updated to the latest 10. 3 drivers from the amd website. However, windows 7 feels the need (not sure if this was after an update, but more than likely because this was never there before) to tell me i need to install a driver. This is the only notification that the action center is giving me. But it doesn't stop there, it's also telling me that my video card is the "5700" series, sorry windows 7, but you're wrong. Since it's a 5850, it is clearly in the 5800 series.

Dell 540 Dual Monitor Video Driver Issue

I upgraded to windows 7 64 bit from vista 64 bit on my dell 540 studio desktop. I have dual monitors. I downloaded the recommend driver from the dell site but system keeps shutting down. At first i was getting critical message "no suitable graphics card" found. If i rebooted, everything would work ok. I tried working with microsoft support on multiple occasions and this is still "unresolved". Now my second monitor won't stay on. Keeps going in analog save mode! What do i do next? I had no problems with vista! Dell offered to help if i paid another $200.

Hybrid Atsc/qam Multimedia Video Controller Driver

I have a gateway lx6820-01 p/n pt. G790x. 001. I have a hybrid atsc/qam pci-e avs video capture tv tuner card. I just did a clean install from vista to windows 7 and it won't install a driver for my multimedia video controller device. I'm pretty sure that is my tv tuner card. I contacted gateway and they said i would have to update my chipset driver, but there was no support for windows 7 yet. I also went to device manager and tried to update online.

Everything else went flawless on the install except for my graphics card, but i went to the manufacturers' website and updated that driver. I would really like to get my tv tuner card working if possible. Any idea where to get the driver?
