Windows will not load drivers for GTX 560 TI

January 29, 2014 at 07:34:50
Specs: Windows 7 64-bit
motherboard is Gigabyte GA-78LMT. Video card is EVGA GTX 560 TI. OS is windows 7 home pro. 1000 watt power supply, card in pci express 2.0 slot.

Driver installed, would not load, had windows searce for updated drivers, not only wont load but windows now is telling me that loading the drivers would damage the mobo, wont load windows except in safe mode. What gives?

If you haven't already done so, make sure to uninstall the drivers for the onboard Radeon graphics. Once that's done, reboot, enter the BIOS & disable the onboard graphics in the IGX menu & set the Init Display First to PEG.

edit: spelling

Get your video driver from NVidia directly and make sure you select the correct OS, especially 32bit or 64bit version of Windows 7.
if you really want to be sure, download and reinstall motherboard drivers (less video driver) from Gigabyte first to ensure the best compatibility.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I have triple checked that the M.I.T and Advanced BIOS have the same IGX config with onboard graphics disabled and that the Init Display First is set to PEG. When the system boots, a message is flashed just before any drivers load, but so fast I can barely detect it, drivers load, windows starts, flashes me a BSD with a page of text message, again so fast I cant read it, and then goes into an infinite loop of rebooting until I stop it and boot in safe mode (with networking.) In addition, my sound drivers are not being loaded. This just gets wierder and weirder.

Boot into safe mode & disable the auto-restart feature, that way the BSOD will be displayed & you should be able to troubleshoot the problem based on the error message. More than likely you installed an incompatible driver or you never uninstalled the Radeon driver & it's conflicting with the NVidia driver. The sound drivers may be still loading but it's possible the NVidia HDMI sound drivers have taken over as the default.

I suggest you completely uninstall the NVidia drivers, reboot & let Windows load generic VGA drivers. Then install these:

had to use an uninstaller utility to get rid of all the NVidia components but the system boots normally now with standard vga drivers.

Windows (naturally) gives a generic code 43 error, I think the card itself is defective as I really doubt a brand new mobo would have a usb problem. Will take it to the locus of evil (aka Best Buy) and have the card checked out to be sure. Get it replaced and try again........
