Windows 7 64 bit GTX 560 Display Driver Issue

Hello All,

I just built my first PC, specs are below:


GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 Intel Z68 Motherboard
Intel Core i5-2500K BX80623I52500 Unlocked Processor
Corsair CWCH50-1 Hydro H50 CPU Liquid Cooler
Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 Vengeance 8GB PC12800 DDR3 RAM
MSI N560GTX Twin Frozr II/OC GeForce GTX 560 Ti Video Card
WD Caviar 500GB Serial ATA HD
Corsair CMPSU-750TXV2 Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 Power Supply
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64BIT

I installed everything and wasn't getting any signal to my monitor, so I took out the graphics card and everything booted up fine. I installed windows and all was well. Then I tried to put the card back in, but now windows won't boot. I looked around and heard someone said reset the bios, so I cleared CMOS on my MOBO, but same thing ended up happening. Any ideas what I could try? Any help is appreciated! Thanks.

Best solution

Are you sure that Windows is not booting? It sounds to me like you have onboard video and haven't changed the BIOS settings to the correct ones for using your video card. Windows probably is booting, you probably just can't see it because it's still outputting to your onboard video.

That was exactly it! The display setting in the BIOS was "auto" which I figured would work, but when I changed it to the PCI slot, all worked well. I'm running on all 8 now thanks!
