Windows 7: Removed driver with DriverSweeper - BlueScreen

22 Nov 2009   #1

Removed chipset driver - BlueScreen - no recorvery mode


I wanted to update my chipset/LAN drivers for my mobo because I got some strange issues in my network.

Let's start from the begining. There are 2 computers in lan, one running windows 7 and the other on XP. While ago, net provider cut me up for like 4 days and since then I couldn't get my windows 7 to connect to lan. It said there was come connection issues and it couldn't find any solution for that (yellow triangle appeared next to the "LAN monitors" icon in tray). I couldn't connect even to the local network while XP comp connection still works fine, i'm writing from it now.

So I ended up doing this stupid thing, "updating chipset/lan" drivers for my mobo. Firts I wanted to remove old driver as I used to do it on my old XP - driverSweeper in recorvery mode. When I rebooted system it was too late. Blue Screen flashed in front of my eyes while startup animation was playing and the computer resets. Later I found out it said 0x0000007b. Nothing I could thing of helped to fix it. No restore points were taken (no auto, no manually done by me, oh you stupid), WinRE with fixing tools, startup fix, memory thing - nothing.

Mother board isn't in fact broken or something, I still can run my Ubuntu LiveCD. I managed to burn WinRE thanks to that. Even though it was the same damn thing as on the Win7 installation disk.

Is there any hope for this issue? Only thing I know is that my system is missing Chipset drivers and it can't manage to fix by itself.

Use the Vista chipset drivers. Then install in safe mode for specific devices using the device manager.

Looks like I forgot to mention I can't boot to normal nor recorvery mode.
If I was able to boot recorvery mode there would be no problem.
