Yes, I can boot, there is no problem with my computer excepting the restart.
I don't know which driver was worked before, but I will install the driver from my original driver cd.

do you know if you have integrated graphics? if so, you may find an updated driver on gigabytes website.

Can someone help me pls, because I cannot restart my PC from windows, only with the reset button.The shut down is working perfectly, only the restart doesn't.
Thank you!
This doesn't really sound like a driver issue, but rather a hardware issue.

Check the video card to make sure it is properly seated, and check any power connections to see if anything is loose.

Let us know. I'm on my way out, so it'll be some time before I get back to you.

Later.

kword88:I tried again with the driver sweeper, and then installed the driver from gigabyte(I know the model number) but it didn't help

sygnus21:I will check that, but if this is a hardware issue, then why is the card working perfectly in any game??

Cause it could be something other than the video card. Power supply, loose wires, or it could very well be that the card is failing or intermittent (comes and goes).

That's why I said check all your wire/cable connections. And I'm not ruling out the driver issue, I just said it doesn't sound like one.

Also, I think it’s a good maintenance to occasionally remove and clean the contacts of your PCI cards every now and then. This ensures that the cards are properly seated and have good contact.

I do this at least 2 times a year, sometimes more, and it also ensures my case isn’t full of dust or other debris.

My two cents.

GT9600, thats a fairly older card yes?
260.XX is for the latest nVidia cards. You probably do not want to use it. I just went back to 197.XX from the 260.XX driver, for my GTX260.
Like suggested above, safe mode, uninstall driver in device manager, add/remove uninstall all nvidia software, driver sweeper, uninstall all nVidia software. reboot Install 1XX.XX series driver, reboot....

System restore??????????????????????

Quite possible Direct X 11 or latest PhysX not for your card.

eVGA GTX 260 SC/55nm

Earlier discussion I had started over the 260.XX driver.

Or, it could be the fact that it was not related at all to the nVidia driver install, but something else that was installed in the same time period.

Have you verified in WU to see if anything was installed within a day of your attempted nVidia driver install?

Remember, this is happening regardless of which driver you are using - which indicates that it is suspiciously not related to the GPU driver at all, in the first place....

Maybe you are right, maybe there is something else, or something else too.
I checked out my windows updates history, but no updates were installed in that day.
