I'm having a problem that appeared one morning. I didn't install/remove anyting before, it just happened.
The problem :
I see graphics problems when i'm playing games, when i'm surfing on the web or even watching a movie. It can go from the windows task bar going all pink to a complete black screen (for 1 second). I even have , sometimes, the blue screen and it automaticly reboots.
my hardware :
cpu : C2D e6600
ram : 2GB of DDR
G.card : Geforce 8800 GTS 320mb
OS : windows 7 rc 7100 64bits (only that one, I don't dual boot)
I was using 185.xx driver
and I thought updating that would fix my problems.
So I've unistalled them , then reboot and my PC freeze when I'm trying to install the latest one. Forcing me to restart my computer (and it automaticly install some old driver 181.xx , I think).
After a few try, I manage to install the latest drivers
Yet, I always have the same graphics problems and always this message appears :
It says that the driver wasn't responding and it was "restore".
I'm writing from the same OS but in safe mode with network and I don't see any graphic problem so far.
If you have any idea what is the problem and how to fix it , thanks.
I can only wonder if problem comes from :
. windows 7 alone ?
. my graphic card is dying ?
. Nvidia driver broke ?
I don't have any other computer with Windows7 OS. Don't have any extra graphic card to test.
