Display driver failed to start RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everybody

    Since last week i have been getting a message called "Display driver failed to start". I don't know if it was caused by a windows update or by a nvidia update. When the pc is in idle it starts to freeze randomly and then I have to restart the whole computer. And when I reboot somethis it freezes already at the booting process. How can I fix this? I already ran sfc /scannow but it didn't find anything. Sometimes when i boot up my pc, my tv can't get any videosignal and my pc starts to beep six times. 

    • Win 10 home 
    • Version 1709 OS Build 16299.334
    • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 Ti OEM

    Thx and have a nice day.

  • If you do a search for ' beep six times' that is normally related to a graphic card issue. Try removing the video checking the connections are clean and reseating it, and try another slot for it see if that helps.

    Others are having a blank screen after Sleep too where apparently they can't input at all.  So, when you "have to restart the whole computer" can you at least do a resume from Hibernate instead?  Also, for this problem screen scenario and others I have been suggesting people try using a boot menu.  Doing that would allow you to switch temporarily to a Low res video driver, also hopefully for a Resume but I'm less clear about that possibility.  Once you have booted in Low res you can switch to a different video driver by using the Project dialog.  Another potential but less defined workaround would be pressing Win+Ctrl+Shift+B.  FWIW I use it mostly out of curiosity to know what it is going to come up with next.   ; )

    Due to those beeps I opened my computer yesterday and disconnected the graphic card. When I took the graphic card a plastic "bolt" and a spring fell. So I opened the graphic card and looked where those pieces were missing. On the graphic card there was a metal thing which looked like TTTTT (if you google for "760 gtx open" then you know what i mean)and those bolt and spring where from there. I placed them back there and put the graphic card back in to the pc. Since then my computer runs normally.

    Sorry for the bad english
