Windows 7: blue screen with GeForce 7900 GT

blue screen with GeForce 7900 GT

Hi,

I'm having a problem where if I double click on a video or a picture, my screen goes to a pixleated green screen, then when I hit ctrl-alt-del, it goes to a pixelated blue screen. When this happens, I hear the video card fan go to full speed and I have to restart to fix the problem. If I drag the picture or video into media player first, it works great.

I've seen these screens before when I had video driver issues with another compuer. I have the Nvidia driver 8.15.11.8172 installed now. When I tried to upgrade to the190.38 drivers, I got the green screen of failure on start up, and had to reboot in safe mode and roll back the drivers.

The video card is Nvidia GeForce 7900 Gt.

Can anyone offer me some tips or advice? It would be greatly appreciated

Thanks,

Scott

Hi and welcome to sevenforums

we really could use your system specs. Os (32bit or 64), and install clean or upgrade.

4 gigs of system ram

do you think I should try to find an older driver? the newest one just gives the the green screen right away.

Thanks,

Probably if the old one worked than use it. I am using the GeForce 8600 GT.

how exactly did you install the drivers? you may want to try
1.booting in safe mode with networking
2.downloading newest driver from Nvidia site(still in safe mode)
3.uninstalling the current driver from device manager
4.use a driver cleaner to remove from registry
5.reboot in safe mode with networking
6. install new driver and go from there

I had problems with Nvidia drivers and this worked for me.

No problem. I hope it works for you, if not I will give you another method to try. Does this issue occur when you run games also? What media player are you using? Could you please rep me if my info was useful?
