Hello, I need an urgent fix to this issue...
I was using the 301 drivers for a month and I used to get occasional crashes while playing BF3, but I didn't mind coz thats too common for everyone. Then once the system got restarted while trying to play an Youtube video.
After that, when I started my PC it used to get stuck at the Windows 7 starting (with the logo) screen.. But the windows did continue to load coz I could hear the startup sounds.
But I could go into Safe Mode with problems. After few tries I couldn't get it working and randomly the screen would be stuck at the win7 start screen like I mentioned or the monitor would go into input detection mode like VGA->DVI->HDMI and then finally "Cable Not connected"
I tried uninstalling the driver (296) and installing (301) and (304 beta) with and without removing with driver sweeper in safe mode. but no luck; the same. So I thought some driver issue and I installed a fresh Win7 again with C drive format.
Then I installed the 301 (stable) drivers and when it asked me to restart, it restarted and when the win7 starting screen came up, I was kinda shocked coz it was the same problem; even after a fresh Win7 install !!
Then I went into safe mode and uninstalled the 301 and installed a old 266 from the driver CD, but the same problem. Then I uninstalled it too and let windows 7 update install the driver too; that didnt work either.
So I did some digging around and I ran into Timeout Detection & Recovery, or TDR issues in forums and looked quite similar to my problem... But I could not find no concrete fix/solution.. Someone please help... Thank You.
[and please don't ask/suggest silly things like whats ur PSU wattage etc.. it was working fine for a long time only recently I am getting these.. and my pc: i5-750 (stock), 4 GB Ram, 560 ti, Acer H235H full HD LCD]
