Windows 7: Graphics card causing boot problem

24 Oct 2010   #11

Winbdows 7 ultimate x64 | Ubuntu 12.04 x64 LTS

By case you mean the cpu case no? It's been opened only once when the card was to be installed.. Just once..
And i saw that at the back of psu, its written 230V AC only. Only this much info I've about my current psu.. Don't know more than that... I can try opening the case but am sure i wont be able to put it back.
Also when the starting windows is about to disappear and the black screen is to arrive, the keyboard lights flash twice and then goes off. The light wont lite up even when i press caps or scroll or num key. I've set the boot to not stop for keyboard errors (well, my keyboard isn't bad. It works nicely) in the bios..

Do you have any paperwork on your purchase or some place on th PC where you can give us the entire model # so we could possibly look up the specs?
Thanks. Fabe

It didn't exhibit this behavior for the first month or so, worked normally until a few weeks ago?

If you have had your computer on for a couple of hours, then turn it OFF, wait a few seconds and then turn it back on, does it still exhibit the same behavior?

Just wondering is this happens only when the machine has cooled down a bit.

Nope.. Temperature seems to have no effect on the issue.. It happens every now and then irrespective of the temp.
Btw, today i got a couple of BSoD's also. I tried bluescreenview to view them but it doesn't read the crash dump files. The blue screens very likely are related to the card. Not sure though as i only get a glimpse of it. Should i upload the .dmp files here?

Yes, zip up the .dmp files and attach them. This will be very helpful :)

Also, I am not entirely certain how a GPU fit in that case. Could you measure it and give me some external dimensions of the case? From that photo it looks like the case is no wider than a 10 key!

How do i zip those files? Everytime i get error i.e. it's being used by another program. Tried in safe mode too. Didn't work.
And btw, my cpu cabinet's dimensions are 580x455x240 (mm)

Ezio, it will help us if you follow the instructions in this tutorial and upload the resulting files. With those we can look deeper into your system than a dump file allows us to.

In the meantime, I will look at the dump. I'm sorry the password does not work. Please upload this without a password.
