Hi all. I'm not sure where to start with this issue, it's bit spread out but it all started while I was gaming and the game froze and then the computer crashed. The freezing happened every once in a while, but the crashing had never happened. During the restart I see this...
And then when windows tried to start up, I got a blue screen and then it rebooted once again.
Determining that this was an issue with the bios, I resetted the CMOS. No change. So I flashed the bios with the newest update. Again, no change. I was able to boot my computer in safe mode with no issue though. So I figured it must be a driver
issue. I started by removing my graphics driver for my 8800GT and rebooted. It was able to start up Windows fine, but the stuff in that image above still occured. I then tried to install the drivers
located on the NVIDIA website instead of using Window's driver. But I got a message saying that I'm not using Windows 7 or Vista and as such I cannot install (but I am using Windows 7 Pro). So I tried using the Window's auto driver install and when I restart, I am unable to load Windows normally. So I'm really puzzled now because right now I believe it's a driver issue, but I can't install any other driver than the one Window's installs. Also if I am able to get a driver installed, how would it relate to the above image? Thanks for any help, and if more information is needed please let me know.
