Windows 7: Crash/Restart, Possible Graphics Card Issue?

This didn't work I'm afraid.

I don’t really know what to do now. I’ve seen a few threads on other forums with similar issues as I’m having. Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be any clear course of action. Has a dodgy driver update scrambled my GPU and it’s drivers for good...It seems that way...

Just a warning to anyone trying the above step. If you remove all traces of your driver and things associated with it might remove your network adapter drivers. This happened to me.

Could be the graphics drivers and network adapter drivers are both part of the nForce chipset, and the removal of the GFX drivers messed with the network adapter drivers.

Try installing the nForce drivers again: NVIDIA DRIVERS 258.96 WHQL

Hi Jonathan,

You're right. I already managed to find the network adapter drivers using my laptop and moved them across to my PC. Still no luck with my graphics card driver though.

What happens when you try to install these drivers?

I've tried those a few times.

I've tried to uninstall and clean install all the drivers you suggested. I’ve tried removing all traces of the drivers using driver sweeper about 10 times now too. But to no avail.

I've tried to access the Nvidia Control panel but i get an error message "You are currently not using a display attached to a Nvidia GPU". The device manager shows the exclamation mark against both cards with the code 43 error.

I really appreciate your help so far. I've run out of ideas.
