PC caput

Postby SYN_Haashashin » Fri Mar 04, 2016 8:12 pm

Hi all

I think my PC is caput. I don't know why bu since I tried to update the latest envidia drivers I was getting random blue screens. I tried to fire it up today to fly but the dmn thing doesn't even load fully before a blue screen comes up.

I trying a Windows reinstalling to see if the GPU drivers update broke something...if not I will need to do a clean install, any advice on the best way to do it??

@Ricky I'm sorry man :sad:

Sorry to hear! Did you try to run in safe mode? Maybe you can revert to old graphics drivers from there?

I think I got it working again...but with no nothing on the c: drive :eek:

@Vander: I tried, but even when loading the safe mode, the PC crashed couple of times so one of the time it worked I saved the important drives ans stuff to a USB External Drive I have and perfomence the reinstall. All seems to be working good, no blue screens just yet.

:grin:

If your c drive became corrupted, make sure everything is backed up as that smells of Hard drive failure of some sort. If it happens again its new drive time.

It seems the crisis its not over :lol: :lol:

Yesterday the PC gave me a black screen and restarted itself couple of times before I gave up playing. Only antivirus and steam (with one game) on the hard drive. Its weird cus Its only crash now when playing a game (blue screen). Anything else is good to go so I will revert the GPU drivers and if that doesnt help I guess it will be time to use Blackie advice and buy a new hard drive. Also its time to start saving for a new PC :twisted:

Nothing works so far :evil:

I will try Blackie advice and if that doesn't work I may be facing a long period of no gaming at all :eek: :cry: (until I can afford a new PC)

Ohh well...more time to go to the beach/out :lol:
