Windows 7: Nvidia card doesn't work for some reason!


30 May 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
 
 

Have you checked it is seated in the rail properly and that the power is correctly connected.

You may also want to try the fail safe bios approach too as you mention it.

Have you checked it is even connected to the dedicated gpu? From the looks of those pics it's not even displaying the dwm.

try reseating the card, and also that is has enough power from the power supply.

Also, did it work before and now stopped? it sounds like it used to from your Original Post. I'd check and see if it's fan is spinning n such. if it's not the card could have died. Cuz if it's not working in windows or no drivers are installed. The fan will still spin. or it should.

Also have you tried to uninstall drivers, run Driver Sweeper
Guru3D - Driver Sweeper (Setup) download from Guru3D.com
and then reinstall the LATEST drivers. Windows might a few weeks back or whatever updated to a driver that Nvidia has since pulled cuz it was stopping fan's from working (not good) so I'd try that first also.

I have all the latest drivers. I have uninstalled them and reinstalled them many times, manually, automatically the result is same. The drivers are there, the comupter wont allow them to work properly. When I let my comupter reinstall the drivers is says VGA compatable.

Does that motherboard have an intergrated graphics card? If so, have you disabled it, so you can use the 9800 GTX.

.....Uh, can that chance during the sudden restart, and how can I check it? One guy asked if the fan stopped spinning. No it didn't. And how can I check that my video card has enough power form the power supply.

A bios resetting itself is not good. Go back into Bios and reset to defaults. Then review all settings one by one for your specific setup. (If you were overclocked--don't do that yet). Now try your system. If it works fine and then reverts to the error change your CMOS battery. I would also update you Bios to the most current version.

I restored the BOIS to default, nothing new. I doubt I need a BIOS update. I can acctually play some crapy games when I use the onboard video card.
So does anybody have any ideas? The only thing I can think of is that some really small ponitless part in my video card has borken, and my video carddrivers wont accept it and the computer cant find the problem.
I acctually experienced the problem after I played splinter cell conviction. The computer freezed and my screen started flashing, So I did a forced shutdown on my computer. I experienced this problem a few more times during the game, and after a restart the problem came and stayed. All the scans and everything said that everything works fine. So I have my doubts of it being a hardware problem. Also every time I start the windows it block two things: Something called "Tages protection" and the video card drivers for some reason. So are those two things related or something? I am really stumped here. Nobody cant help me and I dont want to spend 20 bucks on diagnoses. Yep I asked, thats how much it costs.

I'm not familiar with Tages Protection, but it's apparently one of those delightful copy protection things installed by some game or other.

It's mentioned in Wikipedia:

Tagès - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I have no idea what is preventing your graphics drivers from installing.

At some point, you may have to do a clean install of Windows. That's assuming that you have no real hardware problems.

I have the drivers installed they just dont work. Anyway I think that I am first going to put a cheap video card on my computer to check for sure that its not a hardware problem, if its not I quess I have nothing left but to make a clean install.

Try a Linux LiveCD, like Ubuntu or Linux Mint. If there are problems with the video on a LiveCD, it's a hardware issue.
