Hi all, i trust everyone had a fantastic christmas......
yesterday i experienced severe issue with the graphics on my pc. i had earlier been online doing some practice racing on a secure server, after a while the game began to flicker and freeze, it got so bad that even CTRL-ALT-DEL wouldnt get me out of it.
so i contacted a friend who suggested i use 'Game Booster', it determines certain factors on your pc and turns off services that arent required during game play, so i downloaded and installed it, but didn't really see much improvement. then i realised i hadnt installed the drivers for my steering wheel, so i downloaded latest versions and installed. then proceeded to download and install latest drivers for video card, turns out i was running the latest ones anyway
i have since uninstalled the 'Game Booster' software and the steering wheel driver and profile software, but am still having issues
went back to server but i was locked out, very strange as i had the password. so began to practice offline, the same things started happeneing, freezing and jerky graphics.
current situation is it appears the resolution is locked at 800x600, nothing can be altered, the video card is being detected with what appears to be the correct drivers..........so now the pc wont boot into windows 7 normal, only in safe mode
if i uninstall the video card from within Device Manager, then reboot i can get into windows normally but as i said resolution is locked at 800x600 and screens are NOT recognised.......
below is a series of pics i took with digi camera during boot ups and start ups. i've tried to keep them in sequence but after uploading them they went into reverse order, so the top picture is actually the last one and vice versa Computer Problems pictures by OzAngus94 - Photobucket
