Hello. Around last December i tried building my own computer for the first time. After having a problem i was out of town almost all year. Now I'm back home and i want to get down to the bottom of this problem. I've gone on actual 60+ forums trying to figure out how to fix my problem. Let me tell you a little about the problem. So my computer will work just fine, but then i realized "Hey i need the drivers for the graphics card". So i go to Nvidias website and download the correct Graphic Card drivers. I install them and then BAM, my computer shuts down on it owns. I'm thinking it's just the needed reboot for everything to work properly. So the computer boots back up on it's own. I quickly login, and about 3-7 seconds after i login, my computer reboots again! And this happens over and over until either a "Windows didn't boot correctly" error pops up, or until i go into safemode and uninstall the Graphic Drivers. I've had no luck on many other forums, Nvidia told me to submit a ticket here but i can't seem to find the place to register my product, therefore i can't make a ticket. So i figured I'd see if anyone else here has had the same problem, and know maybe what's wrong. I'm almost 100% sure all parts are compatible, but there's always that small chance that they aren't. I've tried multiple drivers. I've tried making sure theres no dust on the mother board, and reseating the Graphics Card. I've made sure everything is plugged in correctly. And I've tried a few other things. I just have no clue what it is. Theres a chance the Graphic Card is faulty but i believe i read that the chances of getting a faulty Graphics Card is really low.

If you have anything that could help me get down to the core of this problem, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    The answer always lies with what was changed when the problem started. It started when you installed nvidia drivers. So that's the issue.

    Sounds like the new drivers are conflicting with what was there before and it's causing the software to error. So much so it shuts down.

    So can you get into windows at all to uninstall the graphics card drivers?? Boot into safe mode would be best. Sure there's some key press yo hit durring windows boot to bring up boot options.. don't know off the top of my head. Prob can force it by hitting reset right when you see the windows boot screen. Then on the next boot it would show you options. Choice safe mode if that works.

    Go to add remove programs and uninstall all nvidia drivers. Try rebooting to see if you now get into windows.

    If you do go download a program called ddu. https://www.wagnardsoft.c...pic.php?f=5&t=925. Install it. Then search online on how to boot into safe mode from windows 10. Get into safe mode. Then launch the ddu program. Select uninstall all nvidia drivers and reset.

    Next boot install the nvidia drivers 388 or lower for your card and windows version.

    I will quickly mention not to download the newest 388.13 drivers. Major stuttering bug with that one while using monitoring software.

    I've read hitting f11 durring windows 10 boot screen will give you options. If that works choose the recovery option.. from there look for advanced boot options. Then hipefully you see a menu with options. #4 should be safe mode. Hit 4.

    Sounds like a faulty graphics card. You think all your parts are compatible... what parts do you have?

    But he said the computer worked fine till he decided to download the drivers for the graphics card.

    I think he would of noticed that right away instead of later on.. so thinking windows installed it's own drivers for the card.. those are conflicting with the nvidia drivers he installed if they were the right drivers for his card and windows version.

    After re reading I guess it's a bad card since he did uninstall the drivers a few times and tried others.

    Still one last try would be to install ddu and boot into safe mode and run that to remove all past nvidia drivers and possibly the set windows installed if it did install a set.

    Also what windows version?

    If it's a 32 bit version you need 32 bit nvidia drivers. If it's 64 bit you need 64 bit drivers.

    You can see what windows OS you have under the system menu.

    I will say no matter what the cause an issue like this is actually good for you right off the bat. You learn a lot from failures.

    Short story.. (yeah right) back in 1995 I bought my first pc at best buy. Seen it in the sunday ad on sale for $1399.99. Booked it to the store before it opened and waited by the door with other people to charge in there for the sale items. 3 other people and I ran to the computer department to get first dibs on them. I got there last all cause they pc on sale was not in the right spot.

    Anyways.. I ended up getting that new pc repaired 3 times in the first 2 months. Was always in the shop getting worked on. Always replacing this and that and it was never right. Then it was in the shop for the 4th time..

    Called Packard bell and complained the last time and said it's a lemon and you better do something about this. They sent over fed ex to cross ship me a new pc that was faster and a new monitor that was a 15" instead of the 13" that came with mine.

    As soon as the warranty ran out on that pc I tore it open and removed everything! Held the motherboard up at amazement of how crazy it looked with all the parts on it. I vowed right then and there that one day I'm gona understand everything about computers!!

    I read all the books I could get my hands on and built my first custom high end pc and started overclocking! Then to water cooling. Then making my own cases and so on. A total computer nerd that don't fit the image haha

    Point is, you learn from problems that will make you smarter.

    I certainly felt unlucky getting the lemon out of the 4 pc's that day but it really was God sent!
