BSOD after video driver installing

Q: BSOD after video driver installing

I've had BSOD a long time withy my HD radeon 5750, it works fine after driver uninstall + driver sweeper + windows reinstall till i download the video driver then it occurs on random times, i tried it with another video card radeon x5500 a low one but the same problem after driver installing, but bsod appears at game launch and if i can turn off game fast enough bsod will not appear.

Preferred Solution: BSOD after video driver installing

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I then went to add remove to uninstall the older version and noticed the following

Thank You

Hey. I just got a new computer and I'm trying to install the video card driver (RADEON X1950 GT) on it. But just when the setup is about to initialize I get some message like "Setup will only be run in Administrator mode. Setup is aborting".

With Vista, I've turned UAC off (and restarted) but I'm still getting the message. I've also right-clicked on it and tried to go "Run as Administrator" to no avail.

I've noticed too that when I right-click >> Properties >> Compatibility tab, that under "Privilege Level" I can't turn on the option to 'Run this program as an administrator'.

This is confusing and starting to annoy me. Thanks for your help.

Hello, I hope someone can help me.

I have a WindowsXP, servicepack2 computer with a video card- Xtasy 9600 (Radeon, visiontek v4.7)

At random moments, and whenever I attempt to download the latest micosoft security updates, my computer flashes to a blue screen that says "A problem has been detected..." Though it only flashes for a second, I have done it enough times to catch some language from the error message before my computer restarts itself.
If this is the first time you have seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again folow these steps:
Check to make sure you have adequet disk space, if a driver is identified in the stop message disable the driver and contact the manufacturer for driver updates. It says more but I can't read that fast.

Now an "unidentified driver" WAS listed as the reason for the error when I pressed "send message" in Windows.

So I went to www.ati.com and got the latest downloads: dotnetfx.exe and 6-6_xp-2k_dd_ccc_wdm_enu_33678.exe.

dotnetfx.exe installs easy enough, but when I get to install the actual drivers (6-6_xp-2k_dd_ccc_wdm_enu_33678.exe ) I get this error message "Internal error 2755.1601, C:\ATI\Support\6-6_xp-2k_dd_ccc_wdm_enu_33678.exe

Now I still don't have my updated drivers, and I still crash when I try to install the new Windows malware toolm that my update says is critical.

I have Vista 64 installed on a system with a Powercolor X1950 Pro. Everything works fine until I install the ATI driver. If I do, when I restart the computer, I lose video on both of the card's outputs, but I think Vista is still running fine. If I restart in safe mode and uninstall the driver, everything is fine again. I ran Windows update before installing the driver, but nothing changed. I'm sure I'm using the 64-bit driver. I originally had 32-bit XP installed and everything worked fine after installing the driver. I've searched for possible solutions online, but haven't found much that was useful.
Any ideas?

A:No video output after installing ATI driver

The only thing I can come up with based on some other threads is that maybe I need to install the general vista vga driver first. I kept skipping that because I knew I had the ATI driver and because don't remember doing it on XP. Does anyone know if this could be related to my problem?
I'm in the middle of reinstalling XP now, so I don't want to stop and reinstall Vista without knowing if it's a likely fix.

Hello Tech Guys,
I was wondering if someone would know how to install a video driver to its proper location. What I mean is I don’t know where it goes. I was given a CD with the update for the 3D Blaster Banshee PCI/AGP video card, and I installed it to the desktop and thought I would find a file called Setup, that automatically puts it in the right place for me, but there was nothing of the sort. So where does it go from there? All I have is a desktop full of icons that mean nothing to me. Does it go to something called DXDIAG.EXE, which takes me to DirectX Diagnostic Tools. Because I can see the driver under display but no way to update it. Now the reason I need to do this is because I am reformatting the hard drive. The current driver that comes with the card does not work correctly. It only gives me 16 colours instead of 32 bit, but with the update my nephew gave me it gives me 32 bit. Now I went to Device Manager to see if I can do it that way (before I start the reformat) but because it already is installed I can’t do it, I don’t know if its because its already installed or because it’s the wrong way. Does anyone know what the right thing to do is?
Please help me.

A:Installing Video Driver updates?

Create a folder on your desktop or somewhere on the drive, move the .exe file into the folder you just created, now run the file and decompress the drivers.

Once that's done go to start/settings/control panel/display/settings/advanced button, adapter, change, follow the prompts until you see the checkbox for show compatible, check it, go to the left hand frame, scroll all the way to the top, choose standard vga drivers, hit okay, reboot.
Once rebooted go to the same place follow the prompts until you see the have disk button, click it, browse to the folder you decompress the drivers to, select the .inf file, hit okay. this should install your drivers. Once done it will promt you to reboot, everything should be good to go after you reboot.

You can delete the driver folder if you like, or save to hard drive incase you need to reinstall the drivers.

Hope this helps

Hello. I am currently running Windows XP Pro with SP2 on a Dell with P4 3GHz.

Since my computer came with onboard graphics, I bought a vision tek ati radeon 9250 with a pci interface (no agp slots on my motherboard) to replace it. After a difficult driver installation a few months ago, my computer was running fine. I then began playing GTA Vice City a few days ago and thats when my computer started acting up. My screen would go blank at random times, so I decided to try system restore. After system restore however, my monitor only began working in safe mode (after booting up in normal mode, my screen would always go blank after the windows xp sign showed up). I found it odd that my video card only seemed to be working in safe mode.

So thinking my video card might have melted, I pulled it out of the pci slot and examined it...and found that it looked fine (no damage). So then I went into safe mode, uninstalled all ATI related drivers and software (while keeping my onboard graphics driver intact), restarted the computer and entered safe mode again, and tried to install the newest drivers from vision teks website. However, after extracting the driver...the auto intall program would initialize and then give me the following errors:

INF error, video driver not found

Setup was unable to complete the installation. Try to setup your display adapter with a standard VGA driver before running setup.

A:Problem installing video card driver!!!

problem fixed

PROBLEM FIXED!!!!! Thanks for the responses guys, I actually used Driver cleaner and the driver still wasn't installing. So I called Vision Tek again for help (like the fifth time this week) and I finally got a technician who knew what the error message meant. The solution was pretty simple: disable the onboard graphics driver, eventhough Dell told me that setting the graphics option to "auto" in bios would be enough and I should not disable the onboard graphics driver. When I told the vision tek technician that Dell told me that I didn't have to do that and that the motherboard should recognize the new video card in my pci slot and automatically disable the onboard graphics, the technician laughed and said Dell technicians were *****s. So I tried his advice (uninstalled all old ATI drivers and then disabled the onboard driver through device manager) then restarted the computer and just like that I got picture in normal mode, and I was able to install the new ati drivers without the error message.

What a relieff!!!

If anyone else is getting "INF error, video driver not found" I guess the best thing to do is to disable the onboard graphics driver through device manager (and of course set it off or to auto in bios), EVEN IF DELL TECHNICIANS SAY YOU DONT HAVE TO...they obviously don't know what they're talking about.

Thanks again everyone!

TL;DR: The Lenovo supplied driver refuses to install. Can anyone point out a place I can find older Lenovo NVidia drivers? ---------- My ideapad (Windows 10, 64 bit) came preinstalled with NVidia drivers version 359.37 for the GTX 950M in it. These worked fine. Then Windows 10 decided to overwrite those with a non-Lenovo NVidia driver through Windows Update. Those will not allow any OpenGL-using program to run at all, so I'm looking for a driver that actually works. I would think Lenovo driver downloads would be the best location for this, but the only one I can find there now is 376.67. That refuses to install, complaining that "This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware". I have also tried all the drivers NVidia allows me to download, and those all have different critical faults, ranging from refusing to install, freezing on the Windows login screen, crashing any program by "denied access to graphics hardware", and causing bluescreens every 30 seconds or so. Ideally, I'd want the newest driver in a working form. Lacking that, I'd like to have the Lenovo 359.37 driver back.  But I can't find the installation files for that anywhere. The only way I've found to get it is by factory resetting my computer, but that only lasts me about an hour before Windows decides to automatically destroy my driver again - in spite of "blocking" the update with Microsoft's update hiding tool.

I have winxp prof

I have am ASUS EAX550 video card. Yesterday, I downloaded several driver updates from the ASUS site & all but 1 installed with no problems. When trying to install the driver for the ver 8.24 video driver, i get the following message:

Warning "severe"
"setup cannot proceed because the length of the specified path plus the installation folder exceeds 88 characters."

What on earth are they talking about? I don't see any path specifiction during the install. Attempts to contact ASUS are futile. When I go to their support site, both their "forum" site & problem submit page return 404 errors. ie not available.

Is this a problem that can be easily resolved by changing the specified path? How do I find the specified path?

I'm having a problem getting the video driver to work on the following system:

-Pentium IV 1.7 GHz
-Biostar M7sxf (I think that is the model number - the computer is at work)
-MSI Geforce3 Ti 200
-Windows 98

Also, this mother board and processor where also freshly installed to complicate matters even more.

The drivers included with the video card would not even install - the installation software would just hang at a certain point. After downloading the detonator drivers from Nvidia's web site and installing them, I still get the same results:

Splash screen displays, screen goes black, forced to soft boot, then Windows reverts back to crappy 16 color generic driver.

What I've tried:
- removing all cards but video and removing all devices in device manager
-nothing appears to be sharing the same IRQ
-reformatted hard drive and installed windows XP (same results with XP driver)

I talked my boss into letting me upgrade this computer to save money, and I've spent so much time trying to get this thing to work, he is getting kind of frusterated. Please tell me if you have found a fix. I have never had so much trouble building a computer/ installing video card.

Any suggestions? I feel that it is a possible motherboard problem. The only thing I haven't done is update the BIOS on the MB or GPU. I will probably try that tommorrow.

I have a Samsung P40 laptop, running Windows XP. I recently had to do a clean install of XP, and afterwards, I managed to get all the required drivers from the Samsung website – but the only one I am having trouble with is the video driver.

I can’t seem to install the drivers from the Samsung site as it asks for a password to unzip the files. I have searched other sites for drivers for the video card, which is an ATI Mobility Radeon X600, but nothing works. I get errors saying I do not have the correct hardware or software to install the drivers.

I have Samsung Update Plus installed, which is meant to check for, and download, updates for drivers but according to that the drivers are all up-to-date.

Anyone got any ideas? I don't really know what to try next!

Hi all, as the thread title says, I am having trouble with my laptop. I just reformatted and did a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I have installed all Windows Updates and installed all drivers in the order Dell specifies here: How to reinstall drivers in the correct order | Dell US EXCEPT for the video drivers. I should mention the video drivers I am trying to install are the Intel HD graphics drivers for my onboard graphics. This is because as soon as I do so and restart, Windows hangs on a black screen right after the "Starting Windows" screen and my laptop fan goes on full blast. The computer at this point is unresponsive, forcing me to do a hard power down. The only remedy after this is to either do a system restore to before the video drivers were installed, or boot into safe mode to uninstall the video drivers manually and run CCleaner. The laptop runs fine running on the default "standard VGA drivers" with the exception of poor resolution and unable to run anything graphics intensive. I've tried using drivers from both Dell and Intel's websites, via .exe installers and manually via .zip folders. I've attached my SF diagnostic .zip folder. Also forgot to mention I am running the most updated BIOS with default settings loaded. Please help and thank you in advance!

You should post this in the "crashes and debugging" section. The BSOD occurs during driver install and I don't think it's windows update's fault.

What WIFI card is this? Not mentioned in the specs.

Nobody is forced to use the drivers from windows update, try to find even newer drivers if they exist on the manufacturer's website. Or stick with an older driver that worked well.

Install any found driver manually via Device Manager to assure a good installation.

Programs that claim to update your drivers install either the wrong or corrupted drivers.
If you have installed any driver with Driver Booster 3, please remove them as it may cause trouble.

The AMD display drivers have been flagged, but there are no Windows 10 driver updates available for your laptop.
Also the drivers from your optical USB mouse have been flagged, you need to update your USB mouse drivers

A:BSoD when installing a driver!

Hey everyone, I'm running on Windows XP with a Sapphire Radeon 9800 Pro 256.. Well, yesterday I woke up and had no internet access. After a bit of trying to fix things, my computer started to hang up. I hadn't formatted in a while, and it was about time I did. So I formatted and reinstalled windows, everything seemed to go fine. I installed a few drivers, including the new catalyst driver. After resetting, I am on my desktop for a few seconds and BAM blue screen of death. I have since formatted again and ONLY installed the catalyst driver, same results.

It tells me its dumping physical memory, and I get the following error: "STOP 0x0000007E(0x00000005,0x00000000,0xF7C8270C,0xF7C8240C)"

If I boot into safe mode and remove the driver, I can boot up normally again. Some people have told me to remove and swap around my memory and such, and I have to no avail. I've googled the 0x0000007E error a bunch, but can't find much that applies to my specific situation.

If anyone has any idea, I'd be very happy to hear them! Thanks.

Hey guys,

Here is my problem: when ever I install the VGA driver (any version of it- from the oldest to the newest) my laptop shows me a BSOD, each time with different messages (such as: page fault with non paged area, system service exception, memory management,...) Have you ever seen something like this, if so please help me with the solution.

I've even recovered it using the image disks which I've created when it was a brand new, but I still have the same problem.

All the mini dump files attached.

OS: Windows 7 Professional X64
CPU: core I5, 2.67 GHz

Hey guys,

I came here to this forum because of a problem with my graphics card. (I suppose that this thing is the guilty)
There was an update for my graphics card and I did not feel bad about updating this.
Since last midnight then my computer freezes after couple of minutes (about 10 minutes or so) and I get a BSOD immediately.

I have uploaded a .zip file following your instructions.

Hi everyone, I hope someone can help with this one. Ever since I installed my new video card and drivers I am getting A BSOD stating : there are no more IRP stack locations:. I thought I had it fixed by downloading the latest driver from ATI. But it is back. Running Vista Home Premium sp2 on a Dell XPS 420 with 4 gigs of ram. The new video card is an ATI radeon HD 4850x2 with a gig of ram on each. Sometimes it even blue screens going into Safe Mode. Not sure if it is related but I can't install any Windows Updates either. After I do a windows restore the pc runs fine till I do a Windows Update. The updates all fail and the BSOD comes back.

Recently today I installed a new graphic cards, "AMD Radeon R7 260x". I also bought a new power supply due to old power supply not have PCI port cable to plug into my graphic card. I also tried replacing my CPU with a new one, but unfortunately I had to put back the old CPU due to the new CPU not working correctly. BSOD happens randomly, but the moment I run WoW and it gets to the log on screen I can hear clearly something turning off and on in my case. Then randomly it would make that turning on and off noise in my case. It could either be my video cards turning off and on or something else. Anyways I started getting BSOD after trying to install a new CPU, successfully installing a new power supply and successfull installing a new graphic card.

When we try to install the latest version of the Intel video driver ( ,A03), which was released last week by Dell, we receive the following message:
This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software.
We are running Windows 10 Enterprise 1511 x64 on OptiPlex 7020 small-form factor machines.  The rror appears on all machines of this type when trying to install the driver.
We really need to get this video driver because we've had severe video problems on these machines when Windows 10 is used.
The latest version of the driver that we can currently get is, which was released 8/24/2015.
Is the driver corrupt?

And the audio didn't work. So, I installed the os again. It still didn't work. But, suddenly there's an unknown device driver popup and I inserted my cd driver. But, in the middle of installation it viewed BSoD and the audio driver lost again.
