Windows 7: Repair Install Win 7 Pro from Non SP1 Disc using a new Win 7 Pro SP1 d

A few months ago I inadvertently set my CPU voltage to 1.8v mistakenly started up the pc and quickly restarted and changed it back to auto voltage.

Pc is running fine except I've had no amount of problems trying to get flight simulator x running properly without freezing.

I didn't noticed my voltage go over 1.232 with AIDA64 when I had it set to 1.8v so I hope I didn't damage the CPU. Temps on startup remained normal so I guess if I had put it under stress it would have fried.

I'm not a fan of third-party cleanup tools - but NVidia are useless at providing a decent tool


This appears to be the latest set of NVidia default drivers... Download NVIDIA, GeForce, Quadro, and Tesla Drivers
...which is a bit later than Gigabyte's offering! GIGABYTE - Graphics Card - NVIDIA - PCI Express Solution - GeForce 8 series - Legacy - GV-NX88T512HP

As to decent cleanup, this is probably the best for NVIDIA Display Driver Uninstaller Download version 15.4.1.1 (I'm not too certain about the hosts, though - make sure that you install carefully, and reject any offers of ancillary software. Download using the link in the list at the BOTTOM of the page, not from any of the shiny sucker-buttons!)

Hi Noel.

Umm the link you provided for drivers is for geforce 8 series cards I have GTX 970.

Also I have used DDU but how do you use it properly as itt will reboot in safe mode.

Also regarding my previous post my CPU should be fine and not damaged correct? It's working fine I believe.

I don't know enough about hardware to comment on the voltage issue - so I'll refrain for now (Derek should be able to give a better response than me anyhow)

I was going from the spec in your sig? Gigabyte 8800GT 512 PCI-E
NVidia have these available - NVIDIA DRIVERS GeForce Game Ready Driver WHQL - for the GTX 970

Driver uninstalls are possibly best done in Safe Mode - is there a problem there for you?

I'll wait to hear from Derek then.

Hello, boeingaviation. It's really difficult to tell you if your 1.8V vcore damaged your CPU. The voltage is usually a max voltage and it depends on how much it actually pulled at any one time. I suspect there are only a few motherboards that could deliver that much voltage anyway, which would be another concern. If it pulled close to that, it could have damaged the motherboard as well. But with it running reasonably well it most likely is OK. I would make sure everything is set to default values and no overclocking for a while.

look in the root of your C drive and see if there is a folder named Nvidia there (C:/Nvidia). If there is, just download the new driver and keep it on your desktop. Then, follow this tutorial and install only the Display driver and the PhysX driver, nothing else. NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems

Please keep a close watch on your CPU and GPU temps while playing.

Thanks for your reply. On the whole the CPU is running fine. FSX is the only game I have a problem with where it will hang/freeze after some time of flying but I think that maybe related to software.

When I did overvolt the CPU I did not notice temps any different to before so maybe it didn't actually get to 1.8v as I have an entry level Asus ROG Maximus VII Ranger board.

I can run prepar3d no problems at all and max temp in game on stock CPU speed of 4.4ghz is 48c.

I ran the WEI test and got almost to the completion but it came back with an error saying windows could not complete the test as a component or software driver was preventing it.

Now before trying to rung that when the graphics drivers were installed it failed at the "video encoding, & gave error message " cannot measure video playback performance....... Which leads me to believe I may have a faulty graphics card as it flew past this with just the standard on board graphics after I uninstalled the nvidia drivers.

What happens with FSX is that after about 10 mins of flying with multiple view changes and minimizing and restoring the FSX window, it will freeze when I try tonreopen it and all I can see is the top menu bar & the windows taskbar but in-between where the game screen should be is just showing the windows 7 desktop wallpaper.

I honestly hope I haven't damaged anything, I have the devils canyon 4790k chip. I have even tried downclocking from its standard speed to 3.8ghz and leaving the voltage alone but get the same problem.

I can run prepar3d fine now, I have been in contact with EVGA who make my GTX 970 & the suggested I RMA the card as they think there may be a faulty fan module.
