Starting off, a couple of days ago while browsing facebook, and logged into starcraft II. I started getting screen static and then a blue screen to a shut down. The blue screen error was explained by a nv4_disp. Which I googled and seems to be a video card error.
I did a file recovery and had a friend of mine reinstall all the motherboard drivers and 90% of the drivers needed to run my pc. The only one we didn't install was the newest version off the nvidia website. Due to a time restraint. So we just downloaded the regular drivers that I recieved when purchasing the 8800 GT GPU. (The disc). When I got home I wanted to make sure all my drivers were up to date so I proceeded by going to nvidia to get the latest driver for my 8800 GT. 5 minutes after the complete install while browsing the web looking for latest drivers off all my hardware, I got a blue screen again. This time not explaining but just flashing and shutting down my computer.
Now I know this is what was suggest, and this is what I did.. so should be a easy fix right? --> boot safemode uninstall and reinstall newest drivers for my video card. (8800 gt).
But it didn't take the "newest" updated drivers. But handled fine for several hours with the (disc drivers recieved with my GPU), while installing the rest of the drivers/networking etc.. with my "IT friend".
Now I'm wondering if I should uninstall the video drivers I installed and then procceed to install the drivers on the disc that came with my GPU. Problem being it's not the latest driver. I'm not the smartest with computers so what will this affect? or is there a fix to my problem that can allow the newest drivers to run without causing a blue screen.
I'm able to get into "safemode" and with "networking", but not able to access "last working configuration" (or however that is written).
Please help! I'll be watching the post all evening and through the weekend/next week. So I'll be responding to answers rather quickly
I ALSO FORGOT TO MENTION that there are dollar signs on the loading screens!
