I was recently having trouble with a dll file crashing Star Citizen. I tried a million different things to try to fix that, and none of them worked, including the installation of a bunch of older and newer drivers. I eventually tried replacing the dll file itself, but that caused a different error. After that, I was unable to replace the file back to the original.
I decided to try Safe Mode, because I planned to completely uninstall my old drivers and do a clean installation of new ones (BTW, I was using Windows 7 64 bit and I have Nvidia GeForce 560 Ti running driver version 331.65). However, tapping F8 caused my PC to not finish booting. It would go from the black, monitor-off to a blank navy-blue screen. That is, the monitor would come on, but nothing else would load.
So, I tried to force my PC to start up in Safe Mode. ...And now I'm eternally stuck on that navy-blue screen. Nothing loads. I have to force shutdown my PC to get it off. I've tried starting it up and tapping F1, F2, F4, F8, F9, and F10 upon start-up (each separately and waiting at least 10 seconds between attempts), but that did nothing.
If anyone has any suggestions or if it appears I should just go ahead reinstall Windows, I'd really appreciate the help. Thanks.
