    Hello, as you can read the title my problem is with my graphics card driver which wont let me use him. I had a post before here for my BSOD problem, it was solved thank God but after maybe 6 months a new problem arose.
    Right now my Display driver is disabled, i went safemode to shut it. i tried uninstalling it, rebooting and it would boot up to my desktop but as soon as I open any programs windows will install a driver automatically and then ask me fora reboot, then I'll reboot and after the windows logo shows right before I can see my desktop the monitor will shut off teling me that there's no signal cumming form the gfx. Everything's fine without the driver, I've tried a few different version of drivers but it seems it wont accept them. Anybody had the issue with mine please share how to solve this madness this sorcery!

    Acer Predator G3610
    i5-2500 3.3ghz
    8gb RAM
    Nvidia GeForce GT530
    Acer23'' monitors x2
    Windows7 Ultimate x64

    see if you can borrow a 80+ quality 550w to try in it

    acer uses crap psu's,while searching for the one in yours

    i found a thread that said they shipped one with a 560ti card

    and the psu was the same as yours a 500w max power and it needs a quality 750w

    it then goes to the standard vga which call for a lot less power than the video card

    which is a step we use to check if the psu output has dropped to lower than required to run the card

    which indicates the psu is either starting to fail or is underpowered in the first place

    name brand of computers are built to a price,and only have to last out the warranty

    then it is your problem not theirs

    I would swap PSUs then. If that doesn't fix it its probably the video card. Could have a bad GPU.

    if the video driver is installed correctly there should be nothing to roll back to


    in the device manager uninstall the video card
    reboot tapping f8 and choose low resolution mode
    when windows finishes rebooting
    disable a/virus
    install your drivers
    reboot the computer

    ccleaner is not recommended it can cause more problems than it fixes

    but windows automatically installs the driver when it doesn't find one installed.. I have already disabled automatic driver installation but still it keeps on installing by itself, I cannot chose what driver to install..

    actually I think that was a partial thing. Two days ago it happened again but was able to reboot normally but booting in safemode then rebooting. The new problem now is its having crashdump(bluescreen). Its getting worst and worst, what the hell is happening??? not to soon I'll be the one going mad..
