I decided to finally purchase a new computer, but also installing my own GPU and PSU.

 

I got the computer itself in the mail, took it a part and everything worked fine. I installed my GPU drivers, and immediately got a BSOD.

 

Funny thing is, whenever I configure the BIOS to boot using the OnBoard graphics, it works fine. I then can disable my OnBoard graphics, then it will force the PC to use my Nvidia GTX 550 TI.

 

 

Yet when I configure the BIOS to start up with my PCI slot, it blue screens.

 

Any ideas? Ive tried to Re-Install windows, but it ends up doing the same thing. Thinking of just returning the PC all together since I have a 1 year warranty

Hi

 

:welcome: to the BC forum.

 

Can you please post the exact make and model number of your motherboard, graphic card and RAM ? . 

 

Did you tried the latest Nvidia driver instead of the default one came with the card ?

Yes I have the latest Nvidia driver, 320 version, and ill get you the other information right now.

 

 

RAM is at 3.6, no idea why its not at 4 but I plan on getting another 4gig ram stick to top it off to 8.

 

This seems to be my PC right here

I believe its a GIGABYTE motherboard, GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2

Graphics card is GTX 550 TI Nvidia

 

 

I still have no idea whats causing the problem. Computer is working fine but I hate knowing theres a problem with it :(

 

 

Thanks for the help btw :)

Hi

 

Please follow the below steps.

 

:step1: Make sure the SMPS is from a reputed brand and it is at least 500 watt in capacity.

 

:step2: Download and install latest BIOS for your Motherboard from the below link.

 

 http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4311#bios

 

After updating , load default values in BIOS

 

Download and save Chipset , Audio , and LAN driver to an external media or another partitions than C drive.

 

:step3: Re-install the OS from scratch (Graphics card should be plugged in ). If you are planning to upgrade the RAM, make sure the version of Windows 7 is 64 bit and it should include SP1.

 

:step4: Install Drivers in the following order. Don't install any applications.

 

     Chipset --> LAN -- > Audio --> Graphics card driver.

 

While installing the Nvidia driver, choose custom (advanced ) and deselect everything except display driver and Physx.

Check whether you are getting BSOD or not. If it boots to desktop successfully, play some high definition movies to stress test the system.

 

Report your findings in next reply.

See heres another weird thing. I tried to reformat my hard drive, but when i reconfigure the bios to boot off of the cd-drive, it doesnt work.

 

As in, it just boots like normal.

 

Ive tried everything youve listed except the Nvidia drivers. I just did a clean install instead of the way you described, will try it now however.

 

 

 

EDIT : Same thing still. :(

 

Is it a bit weird if I need to disable the on-board graphics card for it to work? Once I disable the on-board graphics card, computer goes to my GTX 550 and starts to work normally. I just have to re-enable then disable the integrated graphics card everytime I start up :(

Hi

 

Looks like either your Graphics card or Motherboard is faulty. I suggest replacing them under warranty immediately.
