Hi All
I just completed a brand new build and then installed Windows 8 64 bit on the brand new PC. It installed without problems and boots up ok. But while in windows, I am experiencing odd problesm that just should not be happening on a clean system. The screen will go black for a few moments on occasion, then the no video input message comes up, then after a few moments the screen will come back. Happens randomly. Also, the system will freeze - either for a few moments and then come back, or it will feeeze completely and i have to force power down with power switch. Also, I was online and trying to download and the system was stuttering - I could literally hear the hard drive make a stuttering noise. And my progress bar on screen would pause for split seconds at a time. Very strange.

I have not yet installed any software, but the Nivida software automaticaly installed when windows was setting up. Could it possibly be the Nvidia crap causing the issue or do you think maybe something else? COuld it be hardware related?   Here are the specs of my new build:

Asus P8Z77-V Mobo
Intel i5 3570K unlocked CPU
Xigmatek Durin D982 heatsink/fan for CPU
Asus video card - GeForce GT 640 (2GB DDR3)
16 GB RAM, Crucial Ballistix, DDR3 1600 (2x8GB)
CoolerMaster Silent Pro M 850w PSU
Toshiba 500 GB HDD 7200RPM SATA 6.0 gb/s
Asus DVD optical drive, SATA
2 case fans


Any ideas would be appreciated!!

Did you download the correct drivers from Nvidia or are you using the Drivers Microsoft installed?

I did not have to download anything. Video card was in system when i loaded windows and windows automatically installed all the software - not just drivers but all the other nividia stuff too. I have multiple nividia services and software on my PC which i assume are for the video card.

Actually, what I would do is go here https://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/GT6402GD3/#support_Download_36
Then confirm this is your GeForce GT 640 provided by Asus, that way you know its compatible with your system.  I took a quick glance, and theres 3 important downloads related specifically to the graphics in Windows 8.  I would also highly recommend you uninstall all nvidia drivers/software currently installed on your computer before installing the Asus one.

 

1. ASUS GPU Tweak 2.2.8

2. ASUS VGA Card UEFI VBIOS update tool

3. nVIDIA Display Driver V306.23 WHQL
