I just bought a new computer, and build it myself. The specs are
kingston hyper beast 8gb 1600 DDR3
gigabyte 660 ti 3gb
gigabyte gz-g1 plus
windows 7 ultimate x64
I build the comp, installed the windows, and the computer works. I can log in windows, but when i install the drivers for the graphics card and reset the computer i get no picture. It works to loading windows screen and then the monitor turns off. The windows do boot, as i can hear the log in sounds but i cant get any picture. Without the drivers or with the integrated graphics it works fine.
I updated the BIOS, reset it, cleared CMOS, tried the card in another slot, reinstalled the windows, tried booting in different RAM combinations, i even took the card out in installed it again, but nothing works.
Then i took out the graphics card, put it in my old computer in it worked. I got a spare 9600GT, tried that in the new computer and it worked too!
I put the new graphics card back to the new computer, installed the drivers again( tried it with a few different versions) and logged in windows again, with no picture. I connected to the desktop thru my network to see whats going on. The driver crashes with the error code 43, which seems to indicate a hardware problem, but as i said, the card works in the second computer just fine.
I have been trying everything i can think of for a few days now, I'm totally stumped.
Help please. i will really appreciate it.
