Windows 7: Gigabyte GTS 450 Crashes on Windows 7 64 Bit Startup

Gigabyte GTS 450 Crashes on Windows 7 64 Bit Startup

Recently bought Gigabyte GTS 450 Graphics Card. 90% of the time, I can get to the Windows login screen, but when it tries to go to the desktop, the screen goes black, my Graphics Card fans speed up until they sound like jet engines and I have to hit the reset button to get any signal. Sometimes I don't even make it that far. The funny thing is, occasionally, I will make it through to the desktop with the "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" message, but I will get it again if I try to open Firefox. If I make it that far, I am usually stable until my computer is reset, or use any gaming software. It's been like this no matter what driver I use, the packaged driver, 275.33, or the latest 280.26. Gigabyte techs have told me to just try different drivers or send it in.. they've been absolutely worthless! Anyone else have this problem?

Hard to say what it is without your system spec's....does your power supply have enough watts and is it a reputable brand?

Gonna side with Ivan on that, can't really help until we know what we're dealing with; could be a power issue, a BIOS issue, PCIe slot issue, etc.

I would recommend you to install the driver version 275.50. I understand that it is a beta driver but it is worth giving a try. I would recommend you to create a restore point before installing.

NVIDIA DRIVERS 275.50 BETA

try a clean install.
