OK. Correct me if I am wrong, but each time you install nVidia drivers, you get the problems? If you don't install any drivers (apart from the Windows driver) its OK?

well, i had the drivers installed when the problem developed, i have the problem all the time as the pc is locked into 800x600 resolution, and graphic artifacts displayed on every screen while going through dos (bootup etc)

hmmmm, i wonder if thats a clue i've just typed there.....
1. the nvidia logo at button press has white dots all over it
2. the bios title and info page is unreadable with a grey pattern all over it.
3. the actual bios setup page is only recognisable by colour, no text can be read



i can boot windows normally only at 800x600 if i uninstall the video card while in safe mode.

apart from that it wont boot normal with driver installed or not, just goes into 'startup repair' option, which it fails

i've booted up into safe mode, gone into the administrator tools/computer management/system tools/event viewer/windows logs/system

i scrolled down and found error logs for around the time the problem started, low and behold i found entries for nvlddmkm, so i googled that and found the link below which describes exactly what my pc is doing

Nvlddmkm stopped responding error and now freezing and pixelation - Nvidia - Graphic-Displays

Good sleuthing there Angus.

It looks like you might have to try some Forceware drivers to get around this?

I'm going to ask some graphics guru's to have a look at this too, seeing as its so unusual. Right now, I suggest finding a foreceware driver and giving that a go.

Regards,

Hi guys.
A video card that shows errors at the BIOS screens has issues that are not related to the OS or drivers.
It could be a bad power supply, motherboard defect, Overclocking/Bios errors, bad or failing RAM, or just a bad video card.

Can you borrow another known good video card to test in your machine? (Be sure to completely and cleanly uninstall the old card). It's a simple and conclusive test.

The video cards of the 260GTX era had a lot of issues. That's why I am jumping right to the video card.
