Just to be clear it does not come to the BIOS screen?

Let us hear how you do.

FWIW: Users with OEM (HP, Lenovo, Gateway, etc.) should obtain drivers for said systems from the system manufacturer website...rather than attempting to use generic drivers from chipset manufacturers. If such drivers are not available at the system manufacturer's site...that would be the time to search elsewhere.

Hi

 

last nite i didnt even hear a beep after the pc went bsod

 

but this morning i can turn it back on, i entered safe mode, followed your instruction to uninstall all nvidia drivers, then installed the geforce driver using the link you provided (installed from a flash drive).

 

now as im writing this email, things are good. if there are any problems, i will let you guys know. but so far so good, i was worrying if i can finish this post :-)

 

many thanks
