Windows 7: Display produces artefacts and crashes at start up, maybe corrupt OS

Then i would suspect the graphics card as faulty/damaged as none of the nvidia drivers work.
The computer had no issues when the Graphics were disabled, so it looks like that may be your issue.

Sorry I cant be of more help.

Cheers

Indeed, I also aspect the same. I tried the drivers I've had for a year since installing Windows 7 (301.42) and the system managed to load. However, the display was split in 8 scaled down subdisplays with a lot of artefacts on top. I may try a few different drivers in case one of them fully works but other than that I have given up on the matter. I appreciate both yours and nilank's help. Cheers.

Hopefully you may find a driver that is stable.
If not you can still use the computer if you disable the Graphics card again.

Wish you the best of luck.
(Please can you mark this as closed/solved...many thanks)
