Windows 10: Computer rebooting when installing drivers

    Computer rebooting when installing drivers


    So, first up, was getting crashes with my windows 10 after installing nvidia driver 359.00, mostly crashes that recovered automatically, then started getting Blue Screens. Tried 359.06 and had the same problems. Rolled back to 358.91 which originally had been stable but after the rollback became crashy, but less than the other 2 drivers.

    Had a HARD crash while playing Dragon Quest Heroes, rebooted from that and could not boot into windows whatsoever. Had to pull the card, use the motherboard video, removed the nvidia drivers entirely. I can boot into windows as long as there are no nvidia drivers while using my GTX 670. While attempting to reinstall any nvidia drivers with maybe 5% of the green bar on the installer showing it goes black screen, sits for a bit, then reboots. BIOS looks fine, windows splash comes up, not the password screen, black screen there. Tried what I could find to put the password in and get past he black screen but nothing happening.

    Is there a problem with my card or my windows install? I'd rather not buy a new card but its always a pain reinstalling windows if I don't actually have to. And maybe does anyone know how to export all my windows settings if I do need to reinstall.?

    Ok, found some problems on my Master Boot Record, formatted, reinstalled. Card still works fine with no drivers. Was able to install the 359.06 without a reboot, however when booting up I get the Windows splash, black screen before login screen.


    Windows is fully updated which could be the problem in itself. Still wondering if its my card thats got a problem which seems unlikely if its running ok without drivers, or if its a Windows problem since it did seem to start having issues around the time of the last major Windows update.
