View Full Version : Help! Black screen after installing forceware on new build.

Not really sure where to post this, but since I've narrowed it down to being a result of Forceware drivers, I decided to put it here.

I recently purchased some new parts, moved away from having an AMD X2 socket 939 to an Intel platform with a Q6600...

So I get the machine built, and get Windows XP 64-bit installed, and an error keeps occuring when I try to boot it, the screen goes black after it gets to the desktop and then there is just a blinking white cursor in the upper left-hand corner of the screen, and it stays like that.

When I reboot and put it in safe mode, it runs just fine. If I don't have the drivers for the video card installed, it runs just fine.

I'm worried because the card ran great on my last setup, and I'm wondering if there is some conflict going on.

What can I do to fix this?

Which drivers? I'm currently running 174.31 x64 XP drivers with no issue.
