Hi Pedroxam, Welcome to Seven Forums.

First thing I noticed that you have P4 and 7 TB of hard disk? Anyways, let's move on.

Do not keep installing drivers for the card without removing old drivers. First uninstall old drivers completely. To remove the drivers completely do this.

1. Get "Driver Sweeper".
2. Uninstall the old drivers.
3. Reboot in Safe mode.
4. Run Driver Sweeper and clean out all the bits of old driver (in SAFE MODE only).
5. Reboot the PC
6. Install the latest drivers now.
7. Reboot


Keep us posted. :)

You need to give a lot more detail on your crash.

If Blue Screen of Death crashing, you should go here:

Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

You have a 7 Terrabyte Hard Drive and 1 gig of RAM? That's odd.

You should up that RAM with 7, 1 gig would be like driving your car always with a flat tire.

That system is very old, I wouldn't put 7 on it, not surprised you are having issues, that system is begging for XP.

Windows 10 Pro x64 v1607

yup, adding more RAM ain't gonna help much with P4.
I had a P4 2.80GHz with 512MB ram when Vista came out. I installed it and found out system was begging for more RAM and aero wasn't working also with onboard graphics. I remember rushing out to market and buying another 512MB RAM and a nVidia 6200 to get vista working. :)
After that it could run vista but still very slow. P4 doesn't have enough punch to use Vista. After a while i got new system with Q6600+4GB RAM+8600 GT and it rocked.

So i would just install XP on this old system and be happy that it still works. XP would be lightening fast on that P4

Just thought of something. your card is compatible with Win 7. But, you have to install these drivers.

Nvidia Drivers.

You have to install these in compatibility mode. MS Vista SP2 mode and then try to run the PC. Nvidia dropped support for the FX series a long time ago.
