Hey just started having a problem... (posted this in PCTechBytes with no response) Was playing BioShock Remastered (which I have since now uninstalled) yesterday and got white and black (and some yellow and other colors) boxes in game after a few minutes. I thought it was the game, so I tried to alt+tab out but I realized my computer had frozen as well... so I restarted....Noticed on restart I was getting the same glitchy effects....Got into Windows and got a BSOD quickly after a few minutes or so. I am writing this in Safe Mode + Networking. There are still glitchy effects in safe mode, but they're different: Rather than black and white boxes there are a lot of white lines.
I was thinking this may be a driver issue with my GPU or something, so I tried updating my drivers in safe mode but GeForce Experience won't open up there. I decided to install manually with the website but it hits a wall there as well. I can't install the driver in safe mode. I watched a YT video after, saying how to fix BSOD and the guy was saying to uninstall your display driver in Safe Mode by going to Device Manager, and then restart, go back in to Windows, and install it again there... I still couldn't get into Windows after having uninstalled the driver in safe mode. Since it didn't work I'm now thinking that wasn't a good idea. I may have made things worse. I did notice after booting up in Safe Mode that the driver seemed like it was still installed and not uninstalled, which was odd....
Now, I also I thought it might be a virus. I used Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and it found some threats (did a second scan later as well looking for rootkits and found 13 more which I removed), mostly these 8 registry key PUPs it usually (had them show up before and tried to delete them, makes my computer act up, must be important registry files that this program sees as viruses even though they're not) finds when I do the scan, that probably aren't malicious. I thought it better not to remove them (this time). I did find two other files in the initial scan that pointed to files in APPDATA that were tied to google chrome somehow, so I did delete those, thinking it might help. Nothing changed.... So overall I got rid of 15 files/malwares/viruses.
Also, I was thinking it may be my keyboard driver or something making my computer act all wonky. I did get a new one just a week or so ago that I didn't bother updating...I searched online but couldn't find any drivers or updates for it.
Specs are: Windows 7 | GTX 580 | i7-2700K
Anyway, this all started happening just yesterday...Any idea what's going on?
