View Full Version : No image when using drivers.

I have a Geforce 6800 ultra. I have a problem though. My video card is not working whenever i install the drivers (forceware) I've tried previous versions too like the 66.xx series. I tried reformatting my hard drive. However my video card works fine when i use the microsoft vga drivers but performance sucks. But as soon as i install forceware drivers, i restart my computer and i get an image, then i see the windows xp boot screen but after that the monitor just shuts off while computer keeps running. Only way i can get image back is restarting in safe mode and then uninstalling drivers and reverting to vga. I have an Abit AV8 motherboard with the latest Bios. Which reminds me i just download that bios like 2 days ago but it worked fine, just woke up this morning and that started happening. I have Athlon 3800. Might anyone have suggestions?

Remove the card, try cleaning, re-seat it properly.
Check the PSU connections.
Try it on a different computer. or try another card in your current computer (If possible).
