Re: d975xbx2, nvidia 9300gs, won't insatall windows 7 64

it was the nvidia driver that was downloaded from the Windows Update site itself that caused the BSOD and all the trouble after that. i reinstalled win7 64 and DID NOT download and install that driver again and all is well... so that begs the question: what is a good and compatable video card for th...

Re: d975xbx2, nvidia 9300gs, won't insatall windows 7 64

can I put my XP drive back in and boot from it and if things go normally as they did with that drive, put the new in as a second drive and install 7 64 bit to it and then unhook the XP drive and see if i can boot and run from the 7 64 bit drive?

Re: d975xbx2, nvidia 9300gs, won't insatall windows 7 64

the only BIOS updates that i can find all have to do with RAID but right now i can't even get past a black screen with 94 at the lower right corner... i starts to install windows and once it reboots it stops at that screen and won't go past it
