Here is the situation: PC was running fine, and i was playing skyrim (who isn't?), then suddenly everything froze and i had to hard reset. Only windows froze after i put in my log in password. (After the black screen with starting windows). Tried a few things in vain, got desperate, and did a clean install. once i install latest Nvidia rivers, it'll freeze at log in again. It's driving me nuts! I can only log on if in safe mode or the nvidia drivers
arent there. As soon as they're installed, freeze and crash. So here's what i tried so far:
1. Tested card on a friend's pc, it works fine.
2. Tried different drivers, uninstalling old ones with driver
sweeper, still doesn't work.
3. Tried a GTX 260 on my mobo same pci slot, works fine with nvidia drivers.
4. It's not heat related (i think) as my case is well cooled and temps have always been low.
I just don't get it, card is not broken, clean windows install, and crash as soon as there are nvidia drivers?! How am i suppose to make sense of that?!
This is way above my head now, and i have to turn to the expert's help to solve this problem from hell. If i need to upload anything to help you help me, let me know.
Here are the specs:
Asus P7P55D mobo
i5 750 OC'ed to 3.6 (cooled by Silver Arrow)
Palit GTX 570 (factory overclocked)
D-link network card
Windows 64 bit home premium disc.
My pc's fate rests in your hands now!
