Windows 7: No monitor signal, keyboard and mouse dead at random

08 Sep 2009   #1

Windows 7 / OS X / BSD
No monitor signal, keyboard and mouse dead at random

I have a really strange problem, after a while (1-2 minutes) Windows just seems to freeze, the monitor signal dies and so does the keyboard and mouse. This seems to be pretty much random and does not occur at a specific time. Safe mode works well without the problem. This problem occurs both during the installation and on the installed OS. I managed to install Windows using safe mode (multiple times). I have been running XP and Linux on the same machine for a long time without any problems.

I have tried to install it multiple (allot) times, using different CDs and USB memory, same result. Even different isos. The iso I'm using is from MSDNAA and it's CRC checked. I have removed all "extra" hardware, disabled BIOS integrated hardware and usb stuff. No luck. I only have 1 monitor connected so it's not a multiple monitor problem, even tried booth DVI connectors. Have installed all the latest updates and tried different nvidia drivers.

Windows 7 x64 finally!

Hi Zodox
Please check if you have BSOD .dmp files. There are some users in this forum that are very good at analyzing them and tell what is happening. I would have guessed it is a driver problem (given the normal operation in safe mode), but you already said you updated them all. Have you used the Win7 x64 drivers?
Also, if you can load your system specs in your profile, that permits other users to accesss them directly, without having to refer to your Original Post. You can just click on "My system specs" on the left lower corner
Let us know

Safe mode works well without the problem.
Indicates you have a major Driver problem... that is what SAFE MODE does.
it does not load Drivers.

This also seems to be most apparent on X64 systems. Try x86 and see if it continues.
