Long story short, I was checking out the 13.1 driver and I decided to rollback because it was not stable. After trying the driver I tried to rollback to a previous version; got errors after installing/reinstalling. It was to no avail, so I proceeded to use the system restore and after the pc rebooted there was just black. I installed win 7, deleted my drives. When checking the device manager, the vga was not there. I tried installing the driver and it was yet another bsod. Anyone have any suggerstions?
Sorry for omitting some details, I did uninstall the previous driver. Yes it was an image. After it completed, the screen went black after the restart. I'm a bit frustrated atm, tomorrow I will check another gpu, if it isn't a MB prob, I guess I'll flash. Btw does anyone have a simple gpu flash guide?
Also, while most of the time, selecting the Clean Install option when updating drivers and/or uninstalling from Add/remove programs work, some files get left behind when doing a rollback from the latest version of a driver.
A way to completely erase every trace of a driver is to boot into safe mode and run driver cleaning softwares such as Driver Sweeper.
