Windows 7: Windows 7 hangs on startup after installing Nvidia graphics drivers

01 Nov 2010   #11

7 ultimate 64 bit


I have some fun in the next few days, another 4GB of RAM to go in that I am not 100% sure if it is 100% compatible, it is Kingston 2x 2 GB 1600 MHZ, the only difference I can see to what I already use is the CAS, mine is CAS 9 and the new RAM is CAS 8, everything else seems the same.

Obviously the graphics card, which I hope will be reasonably straight forward, another 1TB hard disk, but unfortunately, I need to disconnect my original 1TB, then clone my 180 GB to the new 1TB, then wipe the 180GB and clone the 80GB OS to the 180 and remove the 80GB and re install the original 1TB.

Oh, and the new PSU, as the one I have been using is not up to this lot.

Then I am going to try and add in the additional 80GB to my sons machine, as the amount of games he has is just swamping the machine.

I reckon a good whole day at this and a few headaches relieved with a few beers! (if it all goes well!)
