Windows 7: Permanent BSOD after updating NVIDIA driver

Any USB keyboard should work.
No, unfortunately not. Before being in Windows i get reactions on certain screens and on others i don't. For example im able to open the BIOS menu but in the boot menu the keyboard is dead. Same thing with the menu for the safe boot.
As of right now I always get the dialog: chose safe mode or the system will boot normaly after 30 seconds. Normaly you'd just choose safe boot with your arrow keys, but my keyboard just acts as if it isn't plugged in (even lights on the keyboard are turned off)

I ran into problems a few years ago and finally borrowed a PS/2 keyboard from a friend - F8 worked just fine...

I noticed the keyboard problem right when i bought it, so i don't think its damaged. just some weird issue - maybe because its a gaming keyboard - i guess.

I don't know. I have a Ligitecg G510 and it will work as a normal USB keyboard ubtil the OS loads, which is when the Logitech drivers load. Before that it works fine. So, I really don't know. The USB slots are supposed to work any time. Did you install all of your motherboard drivers from Gigabyte's web site?

Also, where did you get your copy of Windows 7 Enterprise You also have X84, it should either be X86 or X64. Which is it?

Oh... that was a typo, sorry if I got you confused its x86. I'll correct that.

I installed the driver with the CD that came with the motherboard i think. I got the PC about 8 years ago... could also be that i downloaded them but less likely

Please update your drivers from the motherboard's web site. And you still never said where you got Windows 7 Enterprise.

It appears you are going to need a clean install. Download your motherboard drivers first and put them on a USB drive or a CD. Be sure that you select only the X86 drivers and X86 version of any programs you install. X64 bit programs will not run with an X86 OS. The same with your graphics drivers.

Windows 7 Professional 32-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1 (7601.win7sp1_gdr.140303-2144)

32-bit = x86 (From the old 386,486, etc architecture.)

64-bit = x64 (Named after AMD64 instruction set.)

Be sure not to confuse the two when selecting drivers and/or software. A 32-bit OS can not run 64-bit drivers or software.

Well... I got a PS/2 keyboard, so im able to get into safe mode again.
DT is removed and uninstall in the SPTD dialog is greyed out now.

I still get BSODs when im for about 30 sec on the login screen or after 15 sec when i log in. Now I got new dump files... I hope you can make smth. out of it

This is what Dxdiag reports:
Windows 7 Professional 32-bit

Now his specs say Windows 7 Enterprise.
Oh... your right, it is Professional.. I must have gotten a bit confused Sorry!!!

wankoelias, I take it you have not done a clean install. If I read your files correctly, you have not done one in quite a few years. Please read Carwiz post above. You will have to run 32 bit (X86) drivers and programs. Your OS will not run X64 programs. Please download the appropriate drivers from your motherboard's web site and do a clean install. This will help Clean Install Windows 7

Ok.. I don't know why you two keep telling me this.. but i know I cant install 64 Bit sotware on a 32 Bit OS. Did I try this at some point or is there any 64 Bit software installed?

For me reinstalling windows is the last option because all my installed software gets unusable, but if youre telling me its my only option then ill do it.
One other thing is keeping me from reinstalling windows: gigabyte has no driver available for download... do you know if there is a alternative download site i can rely on?
