Blue Screen Problem After Upgrading Nvidia Drivers for MSI gtx770 TF 2gb.

Just replaced my power supply from Raidmax-500w (Came with case)
With a Thermaltake 700w TR2 as well as aN MSI gtx770 TF 2gg from the MSI gtx750ti.

We just built my PC last week and got everything working great with the 750ti.
When I jumped the gun and swapped the card out for a gtx770 and a better power supply the computer started up normally.

I went to to install the latest nvidia drivers and restarted...

Here is where the problems begin!

When booting it gets pass the windows 8 boot screen, then it leads to a blank blue screen (not BLOD I believe) cause I can move mouse cursor everytime I try to boot the computer up and never gets passed it.

I am in the process of restoring/refreshing my system right now, but my question is what are the steps to avoid this trial again?

I have researched a bit and people have said to try upgrading the Motherboard/CPU BIOS or try to get another CPU driver. If so wat is the process to do so?

Sorry to post so much :) just looking to get this issue resolved and see if any of you have a fix for it! Just joined this site and great community!

  1. There are a few things that can cause something like that to happen.
    1. the GPU driver was either not properly installed or you downloaded one with a virus contained in it.
    2. Registry error, this kind of things happeneds but tends to be a one off.
    3. The PSU wasn't providing sufficient power to boot, this can be caused by either the ATX 12V power line or the CPU power line not being securely plugged in causing instability or the PSU being bad.
    Hope this helps!
  2. Thank you for your input. This morning used the guru program to clear my drivers and installed an new driver. Everything seems to be up and running now.

    My only Major issue now is I tried a few games including BF4 with custom settings (Ultra to Low) and this card is only running 30-40 fps and sometimes lower. The resolution on my
    TV is at 1380x768 I believe. The only time it even gets close to 60 is in menus.

    Just curious if my MSI gtx 770 should perform better cause I even think my MSI gtx 750ti was performing the same or better than this for some reason.
  3. The FPS changes depending on the game and what's happening, all graphics card will drop FPS during scenes where there's a lot of graphical processing needing to be done (So 30-40FPS will be normal).
    P.S the max FPS you can get is the refresh rate of your monitor (Like 60Hz)
    Hope this helps!
  4. 35-40 FPS in BF4 sounds right for an A10. That's about all you can expect out of that CPU. 770 is probably a bit overpowered, quite frankly.
