    PC Won't Wake From Sleep After New Video Card Installation


    Hi,

    Three days ago I replaced my amd 7870 for a gtx 1060, using display driver uninstaller to uninstall the amd drivers, then installing latest nvidia drivers/ geforce experience. For some reason, when I move my mouse or type on the keyboard to wake up the computer, the lights turn on the computer as if it's woken up but there's no display on my monitor, and I have to force shut down the PC by holding the power button down, then start it up again. Not sure what to do.

    Thanks
    Fraser

    Did you try running sfc /scannow from a Command Prompt? Have you also tried making sure that the old adapter is no longer in Device Manager. Have you made sure that the bios shows that the external video card is set for PCIe if that is what you used.

    Do you even get a screen to log in after you boot up?

    I changed something (can't remember what) but it seems to be fixed. I'll post here if it does it again

    Thanks for help

    Check your updates. I know that one that is causing all of the RDP issues, NVIDIA GPU problems, etc. was pushed out last month and has just made a mess of Windows 10.

    Make sure that if you install AMD"s Crimson, that you do not get hit with their crapware game stuff if you installed it.

    I removed all the AMD stuff before I installed this video card, but when I downloaded the Nvidia drivers I did the standard installation and it came with:

    Vulkan Run Time Libraries
    Nvidia Physx System Software
    Nvidia HD Audio Driver
    Nvidia Graphics Driver
    Nvidia Geforce Experience
    Nvidia 3D Vision Driver
    Nvidia 3D Vision Controller Driver

    Obviously apart from the Graphics Driver, I'm not sure which of those, if any, are bloatware

    Not planning on 3D, you can delete. The others you may want to check NVIDIa's support forums to see if anyone on there has had issues or not.

    I would leave them and like at first, you can probably remove the 3D without issues.

    All right, removed 3d stuff. Thanks for help, I'll mark as solved in a couple days if it's still working fine
