Windows 7: Windows update + Video Driver= BSOD

29 Jan 2012   #1

Windows 7 starter, Ultimate 64
Windows update + Video Driver= BSOD

Hello all,
Computer info-
ASUS EEE PC N450 Intel GMA 3150
1 Gb original Ram
Win 7 Starter OEM
One yr old, not physical damage

What happens-
When attempting to update, BSOD on restart, update fails, goes into startup repair loop
What works-
Boot to safe mode, uninstall Intel GMA 3150 driver (the latest from ASUS)
Restart, continue installing updates in Standard VGA mode, updates complete successfully

Once you reinstall the Vid driver- no problem UNTIL more Windows Updates- then same failure.

One more thing, Windows Update has a Win included update for this driver- has the same ill effect.

I am installing so many updates because wrestled with this problem for some time, until a full reformat was done, to no avail.

So what do I do, stick with 800 x 600 resoultion, or turn off Windows updates?!!!

I just successfully installed more updates that failed simply by turning the resolution to 800 x 600, without uninstalling the driver.

What is it about 1024 x 600 that causes a problem?

It may have to do with the fact that you are running with only 1 GB of memory. Windows 7 x64 requires 2 GB minimum. Windows 7 system requirements - Microsoft Windows

Edit: Your problem has reverted back to the problem I outlined in post #22 of your ASUS EEEPC 1005 startup repair loop-hardware issue? thread.

Best way to update video driver?
I am about to upgrade my video card, replace nVidia with ATI. What's the best sequence for swapping the drivers? Should I try to remove the nVidia drivers before installing the ATI drivers? Or remove them after installing ATI drivers? Or? Thanks. Guy
