Windows 7: Black screen after installing graphics drivers

Black screen after installing graphics drivers

I did a clean install of windows 7, then i installed firefox, avast and utorrent. I then downloaded the newest graphics drivers from nvidia, I have a GeForce 7300, and installed. After I rebooted the screen went completely black after the "starting windows..." screen. And the monitor goes into sleep mode displaying: "No signal input"

Anyone know how I can fix this?

Hi, uninstall the driver, and reboot, and let windows find a driver for your card.

Boot into safe mode and change the resolution to a low one. Then reboot into normal mode, choose the resolution you want. Before applying it though, also choose a refresh rate that your monitor can handle. Then apply and save settings.

When I go to Programs and Features I can't see the driver. Very strange.

I installed the driver in safe mode, then I uninstalled it. I could then boot normally into windows 7. But after it installed the graphics drivers automatically it now turns black again.

As I mentioned, it's probably installing and then setting an incorrect refresh rate. Follow what I said to set it right.

Changing the resolution to a low one doesn't help, the screen is still black.

Go to Device Manager, and uninstall your driver from there.

Go to Device Manager / click on Display Adapters / right click on your card / click uninstall / and then reboot.
