Ok so I've been having graphics problems in my new build. The screen goes pixelly and then crashes. I have no time to install the driver because of the crash. I cannot install the driver in safe mode because nvidia doesn't allow it. It also crashes in low res. mode. If anyone knows other ways to install a graphics driver it would be much appreciated. My graphics card is a Geforce 7300 gt.

Hi Cingelj16,

Running in Safe Mode go to the Device Manager and uninstall the driver for the graphic card, then reboot in normal mode and install the updated driver running the corresponding Setup.

See if this works for you.

Hi,

Can you try to boot and use Enable low-resolution video (640x480) instead of safe mode on the boot menu and try to remove the old driver.
Are you doing any overclock?

Please post the motherboard model and brand you have.

The build is recently new so I think all the drivers are updated but I'll try to do that. The motherboard I have is a MSI 975x platinum power up edition.

I am not overclocking.

Did the system ever worked or you have that problem from beginning?

Did you connect the power to the JPWR power connector near the PCIe slot? (check motherboard manual page 2-9)

The system works completely, but the graphics card does not work when the driver is installed. I need the updated driver to play games and to improve definition. i have changed to AHCI mode because i saw something that said that might fix it. Of course my PC needs to install 99 updates so im in the middle of installing those and then the recently un-disabled driver will update, i pray that will work, hope fully, I will update when it finishes.

UPDATE: it crashes again, im going to try different drivers.

Boot to Safe Mode. Open Device Manage and Disable the graphics card.
Boot normally, then enable the graphics card and install the Nvidia driver you need.
