my computer is anable to start RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hp Pavilion a6357c PC - windows vista-home premium 32 bit - Hp w2207 Monitor - Nvidia Geforce 6150 "i think".


    I was having problems with my monitor shutting down and going to "sleep mode" while I was using it.

    I download a driver upgrade for the monitor from Hp web site (Driver - Display - HP w2207 LCD Monitor Driver) and (Utility - Tools - HP My Display).

    After that "EVERYTHING" went crazy!

    When I push the power button this is the order of Mayhem:

    1) First screen to come up - Blue/with HP branding - and white vertical stripes, in rows of three all across the screen.

    2) Second screen - black/ with large white "$" signs all over and a blinking curser in the upper left corner.

    3) Third screen - says something about the computer not being able to start and a whole bunch of other stuff I can’t read before the screen disappears.

    4) At this point the computer seems to reboot

    5) Screen is the multiple choices "Safe Mode" screen.


    I have tried the "f-8,9, 10 and I think 12 buttons and followed all the prompts. I have reset to an earlier restore date, several times now, and run the "self fix" program.

    I am now stuck!

    As far as I can tell... the driver I installed "downloaded" is causing the problems... the computer tells me that it cannot self fix and that the restore is not helping and that the system cannot boot.


    i can get online in safe mode, but thats about it. the computer tells me that i have a problen with me nvidia?

    Can anyone help me?

  • Hi,

    Thank you for your post and the detailed information.

    As you can boot into Safe Mode, please go to device manager, right click on your nvidia card and click propertise. Under the driver tab, click "Roll back driver". Apply the settings and restart to check the result.

    If this does not work, try uninstalling the driver and restart to check the result.
