|Hello all - Thanks in advance for your replies.|
I'm running an 8800gtx and I've been receiving the "Display Driver has failed and Recovered" message for quite some time. There is no apparent trigger and the behavior was sporadic. Yesterday I got the BSOD and tried to reboot. Initially, I was able to boot into safe mode, scan for viruses and all appeared fine. I performed a normal shutdown and attempted to reboot normally.
The first few attempts at reboot, the monitor never received a signal, but the hd was spinning and i could hear the welcome screen come up with vista. I managed to navigate to the shut down button in the lower right corner "blindly" and shut down. This happened 2 or three times, and now i cannot get to welcome screen sounds to come up.
I pulled the HD thinking that there may be a driver issue, ran check disk on another pc and it found problems that it could not fix. I tried to boot from the suspect hard drive and I got the BSOD after trying to start in safe mode with the stop 0x0000007B code. I am able to access everything from my HD, on a slaved computer. I've never had a problem with temps, and dont suspect the psu. Any ideas?
P.S. please forgive me for I am not very tech savvy!
