Windows 7: Checkered Pattern After Boot up

02 Sep 2014   #21

Windows 7 Enterprise X64/Windows 10 Enterprise X64/Windows 10 Pro X64/Linux Mint

Kobe, do you have Lucid Logix MVP available in your BIOS? If you do, disable it. Uninstall the Intel on board Graphics drivers. Unless you have enabled LL MVP, when you have a PCIe card in the X16 slot, the on board graphics are disabled automatically by the BIOS. Are you comfortable using the BIOS? Look at your sata controller and see what it is set to. With a SSD, you should be in AHCI mode. But do not change it, just look and see what it is set to. Also check your Ram timings frequency and voltage, make sure they are set to manufacturer's specs. Now, go into bios and set optimized defaults, you will be asked for conformation, answer yes. Now, go back and set your ram to manufacturer's specs, set you sata controller to what it is right now (this is important. If you change it from what it is right now, you will not be able to boot into Windows), set your boot order and save and exit.

Go into the OS. I believe you said you have a driver downloaded already. If so, uninstall your Intel graphics and your AMD graphics driver and reboot as it will ask you to. Next (and download it before you start this) follow these instructions to clean up all left over drivers Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling . Now install your new drivers, but when you do, select custom install, and only install the graphics driver if you can. Only install what they make you install. You do not need the audio/HDMI driver. You have those installed already from your motherboard drivers. This should give you as clean an install as possible and not add other drivers which can conflict with your Mobo drivers and are not needed anyway.

If you get a bsod or anything else please run Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions and upload the zip folder it creates, using this method

See if that helps you any.

EDIT: If you have the drivers for Lucid Logix MVP installed, remove them also.
