WMP Crashes when loading and Blue Screen Yesterday etc...

Q: WMP Crashes when loading and Blue Screen Yesterday etc...

Okay so I was told to make another thread on here with my CBS log attached and zipped... So it will be attached below.

Basically I have been having alot of problems with my computer and I have come to try and ignore the display issues as mentioned in previous threads BUT lately I have been having other issues... My internet browser takes an eternity to load anything and my WMP seems to crash whenever I use it. I can't use windows media center either because it gives me a blackened file windows where the windows media center startup screen is supposed to be.

Also yesterday night I was unfortunate enough to receive a blue screen with a bunch of error codes so I shutdown my computer unplugged it and went to bed... Anyways yeah I know I should just reinstall my os and be done with this but I already did a repair install not too long ago and it took me weeks to get my computer back to where it was at (12 hours a day with no job lol)...

So yeah I don't know where I should begin with this mess of a computer but if anyone would like to help me with these new problems please respond below.

Also here is a link to my old thread (Please note I found a workaround to the whole arrange by issue but the file display issues are still 100% present and annoying as ever): "Arrange By" anything but "Folder" won't work... How do I fix???

The CBS Log as stated above is attached below.

Preferred Solution: WMP Crashes when loading and Blue Screen Yesterday etc...

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I was having some problems with a virus I could not get rid of for the past few days. I've been working on this for a few days so I don't remember everything I did to end up at this point. This is my current situation:

I did msconfig (I think) and went into the boot.ini, enabled "start in safe mode", after rebooting I have not been able to get into windows again. This is what I have done since then: I have done a windows repair, after that didn't I went into Recovery Console and did a chkdsk /r. Still no good. I disabled restart on failure, and the blue screen says 0x0000007E, fltmgr.sys. When I check the listsvc in Recovery console it says fltmgr.sys is disabled. I tried enable fltmgr.sys but it just says "the registry entry for the fltmgr.sys service cannot be located. Check that the name of the last service is specified correclty."

got my brand new gateway fx 7807u. been toying around with it since yesterday. only got around to installing a few necessities; aim,firefox,itunes...
today about 5 minutes after i reebooted i bluescreened, and after another reboot bluescreened yet again. More prepaired this time I ran a pandasecurity scan (Panda Global Protection 09) revealing I had already been infected with 10 "generic trojan"s (path: C:\ACER\Preload\Autorun\APP\PowerDVD\data1.cab[...]).After reading PowerDVD might b behind it I rushed to remove the alleged offending program. PowerDVD's uninstallation seemed to have helped because i haven't bluescreened :D.

i think i accidentally allowed an unrecognized program to run

I have followed the "first-steps". the first scan wont work on vista and the second turned no results. Seeing as its a brandnew computer, i would greatly appriciate it being virus free for at-least a full 24 hours :PP

I have a Gateway laptop running Windows XP Home Edition (SP2). During the XP loading screen (the black screen with XP logo and green status bar) I would get a blue screen of death. The error message of this BSOD was:

STOP: c0000135 {Unable To Locate Component}
This application has failed to start because basekgjl32 was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

I was able to boot into safe mode and run a scan using AVG 7.5. I do not know what version of virus definitions I had.

AVG found a file named "basekgjl32.dll" in the C:\WINDOWS\system32 directory. AVG classified it as a trojan horse named BackDoor.Generic9.AJUI. AVG successfully healed it. I tried rebooting to see if that fixed the problem, but it did not. I still receive the same BSOD. To make matters worse, now I cannot boot into safe mode. I now receive the same BSOD when I try.

I have researched this BackDoor trojan and similar ones like it, but I have yet to find any methods of successfully removing it or dealing with this type of scenario.

Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

Hey guys I just fixed a CRAZY virus (I think its a virus) I had that changed my userinit.exe files and I fixed it by replacing these files using my friends userinit.exe files . Now I'm getting a blue screen with an error that reads:

STOP: 0x0000007E (0x0000005, 0xF7547756, 0xF78A242c, 0xF78A2128)

Also it says something about BIOS to either upgrade it or disable conflicting components.

About the "Virus/Trojan or something":

Just so you know:

1) I downloaded this file <http://isohunt.com/torrent_details/71813493/ip?tab=summary> (if anyone is brave enough to download it and see if their antivirus detects it because I don't have an antivirus so I still don't know the name for this... I guess its a virus or trojan) when I double clicked the file "iphider37se.exe 4.2 MB" it automatically installed a "Windowspcdefender" and started scanning. It looked like a really fake virus scanner so when I click X to close it I got a blue screen and was forced to restart my pc.

2) Then the problem was that windows would load to the Welcome screen and I clicked on my user account to log in (no password required)

3) Then my desktop would appear AS IF it was ready to load up but then it would automatically go back to the Welcome screen.

4) This happened even in Safe Mode so I had to put my drive as a slave drive on ANOTHER PC.

5) It took me HOURS to somehow figure out the userinit.exe files may have gotten corrupt or rewritten by this... Read more

I have been having problems with my family computer where Windows gets to the laoding screen and crashes, which it does in a loop and then occasioanlly turns on. I had this problem a while back but a change of hard drive and a clean install of Windows 7 (it was previously XP) seemed to of cured it. But last night the problem returned, there was a BSOD out of no where and then it returned into its looping process.

I switched out the current hard drive, RAM and CPU with my other gaming computer and it also caused that to crash. So I first took out the hard drive and it still crashed but swithing the RAM again seemed to of cured the problem. However, when I put different RAM in the computer with the initial problems it still came up with the same problem.

Issues Ive seen about this had to do with a "laptop" This is about my desktop, thus a different issue.

Anyway here are my specs.

Battlefield 2142 works perfectly fine on my computer, on this game i played it after I installed battlefield 2(I got the collectors edition) and it worked fine(this is on SP) only it was a bit laggy/slow. Then I installed the whole thing, and i put click on the icon and it would show a loading screen, that woudl go poof then a black screen blinks up and then nothing happends.

This is what ive tried

compatibility techniques(with properties)
Couple tricks i learned online
updated direct X
updated My drivers
and some other things.

In my opinion its Vista, I don't know why it doesn't like this game... Can anyone assist me? Brand new game I got, I got tired of playing the same games over and over...

While installing only 1 error came up a few times

"Battlefield 2 was only tested on 32 bit color"\

Only error I got.
Can anyone give me a simple solution(Buying another computer isn't a solution, this is brand new.)

Also I would like to note I waited a WEEK INA HALF just to receive a confirmation email from this site to make a account.

Hi all,

I have a problem with my new computer. I am also new to windows 7 and am still getting used to everything. On the first start up of the day windows crashes to a BSOD just after the loading screen. I start windows repair on the restart and let it do its thing, then windows starts up fine. I doubt that windows repair did anything as no messages came up on startup or during the repair.

I don't have any information of the BSOD, my motherboard restarts after the crash and I don' get a chance to read the problem, I will post the problem when I have worked out how to stop it automatically restarting.

The computer runs fine after it is "warmed up" so to speak, and I am guessing thats why it starts after Start up Recovery has done its thing which appears to be nothing

I have attached 2 minidump files from previous crashes, windows didn't make one of the most recent.

Anywho, any help would be greatly appreciated, it's not really a problem but more of a nuisance.

A:Windows Crashes to BSOD after loading screen

ok, heres an update.

I stopped windows restarting after a crash and I could write down some info about the BSOD that came up most recently. It had the stop codes 0x0000008e (0XC0000005, 0x82CD9A8A, 0x8C7936A4, 0x00000000) with an error with NTFS.SYS PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA.

Windows didn't just start up this time, I had to run startup recovery, and this time it said that it couldn't fix the problem and sent up an error in the system file integrity check part of the test with a code of 0x490.

I told windows to make a full dump file, so I cant send it my bad. I have changed but any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ok, I have basically no computer knowledge, but I will describe my problem to the best of my ability. The other day my cousin came over for a barbeque, he is supposably the family computer genius so I let him on my computer. He started editing the registry, saying he was removing so called "viruses". I have no knowledge of what he added/removed to/from the registry during this time but when I next went on the computer after he had left (all he did after editing the registry was exit the registry editer) I was unable to click on any of my desktop short cuts or the buttons on the menu bar such as start. I then rebooted by holding the power button thinking everything would be fine but the computer froze after the windows xp loading screen, showing the screen where you login to your account, except with only a windows xp logo in the middle of the screen, no login tabs. I tried rebooting numerous times but the problem persisted. I have no idea where to go from here. If any extremely smart and computerly talented people have any ideas about solving my problem, please explain in full detail, as I have only basic computer knowledge. I may not be able to answer any questions you have for several days as I can only do this at a friend?s house now. Thanks for reading this and I apologise for any bad spelling/grammar. I am only fourteen years old.

First I run Windows 2000 and keep it updated as much as Microsoft releases updates. I also reguarly run anti-virus, anti-spyware, defrag, etc. The problem started 2 weeks ago when I booted the computer it showed the MB splash screen and then instead of the 2000 loading screen it just showed "Error loading OS." in the top left. Well I figured the hard drive was going so I pulled it out, blew it off, tapped on it, checked connections and stuck it back in. Rebooted and everything seemed fine and has the past 2 weeks. Well today I was playing Civilization 4 and the screen went blue. Yes the dreaded blue screen, but no error messages on the screen or anything. Just a solid blue screen. The computer didn't respond to anything so I pushed the power button on the case. Well upon restarting nothing happens. Just a blank screen. No MB splash screen or anything. Everything is powered up and I can hear the hard drive spinning, but nothing is on the screen.

Hi All,

I had my computer tower opened and a small picture frame fell into it causing my PC to lock up. Now when I boot up my PC, it gets to the Windows XP loading screen and it seems to run fine, but suddenly the blue screen of death appears before it hits the windows log on screen and it reboots.

I have no time to see what error pops up, it's only on the blue screen for about half a second.

I have tried removing and putting my ram in the other spots. I've also made sure everything is secure.

Something must've shorted when the frame fell into my PC (stupid me, I know), but I am wondering if something else like this has happened with a solution other than buying a new PC?

I either play Left 4 Dead or Prototype and my computer crashes with a blue screen when I make a swift mouse motion to the right. It doesn't happen all the time, some days I can play L4D for hours and it won't crash.

Some say the most common thing is Logitech Mouseware. I do have a Logitech mouse, Mx510 Performance Optical Mouse (Blue). I am running on Vista, I have visited the driver site for Logitech and found out that Vista does not require any driver for my mouse, and I never had on in the first place for this Dell XPS M1530. I just plug and use.

So ingame, it would happen when I make a sharp turn with the character to look in first person view to the other side or behind me, with lots of things happening at the same time, such as attacks or explosions, screams etc.

This is what I got as the only info that I could possibly even remember during the 10 seconds before reboot during the blue screen.

0x0000000E(something like that)

Then when my computer started up completely, it showed this:

Problem signature:

A:Vista Blue Screen crashes only in full screen game.

Here's a link to a brief description of the error: Troubleshooting Windows STOP Messages
There's not much info here to go on, but most BSOD's that occur during games are due to video problems, with audio problems coming behind them.

So, for starters:
- download the latest version of the video and audio drivers for your system.
- uninstall the current video and audio drivers through Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program.
- install the downloaded drivers.
- reboot and wait for another BSOD :0)

If this doesn't fix it, you'll have to navigate to C:\Windows\Minidump, zip up the contents of that folder and upload it with your next post.

Hi, i'm new to the forum and i need help with my toshiba a205-s4577.

it was working fine for the past year and months that i have used it and then one day it suddenly crashed while i was watching a movie. it displayed random patterns on screen. kinda like part of the image from the video is on the screen then a black strip and random colors. I restarted the unit to safe mode and left it on and browsed the net and downloaded some big files for how many hours and nothing happened.. there are also times when windows is still loading with the windows logo on screen, it crashes. there are also times when the login screen is displayed and it crashes. it just crashes randomly! so i tried to reformat it. i deleted the partitions and created a new one, formatted it then fresh installed windows 7 ( my previous OS is windows 7 by the way) and started installing the basic drivers and after a few hours, it crashed again... thinking that the driver installed might not be compatible, i tried another fresh install of windows (same execution, delete partition, create, install OS) and this time, without installing the drivers, it crashed again after a few hours... sometimes it crashes immediately after turning it on from cold start!

is there someone who can give me an advice on this? is this somehow caused by dust accumulating inside the laptop? or is it already busted?

First post so here goes....

Just built a new pc using asus k8n mobo.

Formatted both hard disks 40gb maxtor ide hdd and 200gb sata hdd.

Installed windows xp on the sata drive.

On reboot after the format and file transfer stage, the computer froze on the windows xp loading screen (the one with the logo and the bar the goes across) It doesnt total freeze, the bar keeps going but never gets past that screen.

So I booted from cd again, froze in the windows installed on the disk checking of the sata drive.

Unplugged the SATA drive and booted from cd fine, installed windows xp on ide drive and installed and booted fine with just the ide.

Plugged the sata drive back in and reformatted it so now hav ide with windows, sata as backup. freezes on boot screen?!

what could be causing this? how do i fix it?? driving me NUTS!!

Ive checked boot device priority and only IDE drive, Floppy and DVD-RW drive are present there?

I'm experiencing an issue on my new desktop.

This is a custom build.

Anyway, what happens is this: After the Vista loading bar cycles through, I get a blue screen that flashes for a quarter of the second. The computer then does a restart, without actually going to the splash screen. It just goes right back to the Vista loading bar where it will then cycle through again and give a blue screen, or go to my desktop.

Anyway, it only does this 1/4 of the time. Other than that, everything loads fine.. Vista starts and the system is stable.. I'm just tired of crossing my fingers during every start up!

Any recommendations? I checked the minidump folder and there is indeed a file in there.

Current specs:

Vista Home Premium x64
Intel i7 920
eVGA SLI Motherboard for i7
eVGA GeForce GTX 285
6GB DDR3 1600 MHZ RAM (I had to overclock it to get it to run at the 1600 MHZ, it originally read as 1033)

I had a RAID5 set up with 3 1TB drives and Windows 7 installed. Recently, the raid has become degraded a few days after being built. This is the second time this has happened within a span of a few weeks. I also have another 1 TB drive and a 150GB Raptor. The 1TB drive didn't always show up in windows, but would show up in BIOS. When I would have problems with RAID, I would boot to the raptor because it had Windows 7 installed on it as well. I had the Intel RAID Management tool installed on the raptor and would repair the RAID. Yesterday, the RAID was unable to be repaired. Upon reboot, I could not boot to the Raptor because there wasn't a BootMGR or something like that. This was displayed in the BIOS before the windows loading screen. It asked for me to input the System Disk and hit enter. After doing this it tried to repair and restarted. Same error. I decided to put the raptor into an alternate computer, wipe it and install windows 7 again. It should be noted that I could not boot to the windows disk to install Windows 7 on the raptor from the main computer. So today I finished with all the updates to Windows 7 and moved the raptor back over to the original computer. I tried to boot up, and it starts the windows loading screen, then immediately blue screens. The screen is only there for a few milliseconds,... Read more

A:blue screen during window xp loading screen

can you post the complete bsod error?

Read other 1 answers

Yesterday as I was playing a video game I had a blue screen for the first time in my computer use (Windows 10). It's pretty new, I've had it for about 3 months, custom built by myself.
At first the screen said 'collecting some error info and restarting', but when it restarted nothing happened (no boot). The following day, the PC booted normally, but after a couple of minutes of use, I got the blue screen again. This time I didn't get a login screen. Instead, it asked me to put the windows disc to fix the system file causing the error.
I had to run to work so I just shut down the PC. When I returned home, windows would not even load. While the PC was working, the screen was black and not displaying anything, not even the cursor.  PC tower LED is on but the keyboard and mouse are off.
Seems like it's a hardware issue, but I have no clue which part causes the problem. I tried removing the graphics card and connecting the HDMI directly to the motherboard but it didn't work. I JUST received a brand new WD Black, and I connected it instead of the SSD and still didn't work.
Is there a way to check whether it is indeed a physical issue, and which component is the root cause?

I was going about my business with no obvious issues on my Windows 7 hard drive, then I restarted my computer to load into a separate hard drive containing Vista and as it tries to load I get a blue screen that is gone just as fast as it shows up and back into the BIOS. In an attempt to try and fix it myself, I have Hiren's bootdisk on a USB drive and using MiniWindows XP to run some antivirus and they don't show much. I used combofix, which was included, and it said it found rootkit activity and needs to restart, but it seems to not have done anything, as trying to load windows fails and combofix says the same thing next time as well. 
Is this easier than I'm making it out to be, or is this something else?
I've run memtest86 for 3 passes with no errors.

A:Blue Screen on "Windows is loading"

Update: I grabbed a hard drive that has been unused in this tower and unused even for months and had the same issue. I grabbed one of the hard drives that I boot into and out it in an older computer and it booted up. The next step would be put my Windows 7 drive in this old computer and if it boots, that puts me at a hardware problem, right?
What could it be? If it was ram, it would have failed memtest, no? Or even it would have blue screened while trying to boot minixp, right?

I have just recently bought a new computer, with the ASUS GeForce GTS 250 Dark Knight installed on it and am experiencing the BSOD while loading my newly installed games such as Team Fortress 2 and Call of Duty 4.

I was searching around and my problem mirrors this particular problem diagnosed in this thread: http://forums.techguy.org/windows-xp/669512-solved-irql_not_less_or_equal-when-trying-watch.html

I have tried to follow the instructions given in the above-mentioned thread but i am unable to uninstall the ASUS enhanced video driver, apparently the cause of the problem, as i can't find any way to delete the driver. Consequently, i removed the NVIDIA drivers from add/remove programs in control panel and installed the latest drivers from www.nvidia.com but i am still experiencing the same problems.

Here is a log from one of the minidump files:

My friends computer is booting to a blue screen with an error about ntoskrnl.exe.

She can start in safe mode, disable all programs that start on boot and reboot to windows. She has to do this every time.....even if no programs are set to start on boot the computer appears to be ok after starting in safe mode.

The CD-ROM drivers are not loading either. Bios sees the CD-ROM (it has always worked before) but it is not showing up in MY COMPUTER. In the device manager it is there but says it cannot start.

I'm sure the blue screen is related to the CD-ROM but I don't know what to tell her. She tried installing another CD-ROM she had but it does the same thing.

Any suggestions I can tell her to try?


A:Blue Screen & CD drivers not loading

I actually am not sure they're related, but this may fix the CD's

Hi all!!

i have some problem, and i hoped u can help me to solve it...

2 days ago, my pc crushed (blue screen) and since then when the pc load the first windows screen (windows logo and 3 blue cubes running beneath) it shows me a blue screen and crush again...

in the last months my pc were crushing when i were running games, and few more programs. i have only 2GB RAM in the pc, so i guess it cous of it.
btw, the problem started since the last crush of the pc, i mean i run a heavy game and few more programs and then it crushed, and then when he loaded after the restart the crushes started to happen when the windows loads..

things i tried to do:
*change RAM from my second pc to the broken one.
*tried all RAM slots on the mother board.
*unplugged everything is posible (mouse/keyboard/video card/inet etc..)
*tried the power supply on my other pc - working good.
*cleaned the pc from dust.
*when i plugging my HDD to the other pc, it works, it doesn't crush..
*all the fans is working good. and it wasn't so hot..

i think i tried more things but i dont remember them atm...

when i plugged the HDD to the other pc and it worked, i took from there the minidump, and checked it:
*the error i got most of the times is coded down.
*i found some guide with this problem here: NTOSKRNL.EXE is missing or corrupt. - tried everything they suggest - nothing helped.

A:PC Getting Blue Screen in Windows Loading

Check for flags in Device Manager. Click "show hidden devices".
Run chkdsk.
Run an online scan at Eset: Free ESET Online Antivirus Scanner
Post Power Supply specs, and voltages and temps as reported in BIOS.
Start>Run>(type) "MSCONFIG" and turn-off all non-MS Services and all Startups. Does the problem go away?

Run a System Restore to a time prior to when the problem started happening.

Do you use Registry Cleaners? They can cause problems by deleting necessary registry entries.

The word is "CRASH", and not "crush", lol...

Yesterday as I was playing a video game I had a blue screen for the first time in my computer use (Windows 10). It's pretty new, I've had it for about 3 months, custom built by myself.

At first the screen said 'collecting some error info and restarting', but when it restarted nothing happened (no boot). The following day, the PC booted normally, but after a couple of minutes of use, I got the blue screen again. This time I didn't get a login screen. Instead, it asked me to put the windows disc to fix the missing system file.

I had to run to work so I just shut down the PC. When I returned home, windows would not even load. While the PC was working, the screen was black and not displaying anything, not even the cursor. PC tower LED is on but the keyboard and mouse are off.

Seems like it could be a hardware issue, but I have no clue which part is the problem. I tried removing the graphics card and connecting the HDMI directly to the motherboard but it didn't work. I JUST received a brand new WD Black, and I connected it instead of the SSD and still didn't work.

Is there a way to check whether it is indeed a physical issue, and which component is the root cause?

My desktop pc has recently started to not load up / boot when I turn it on.

When it manages to turn itself on it all works ok. However oftentimes I have to turn it on and turn it off repeatedly until it finally starts to function.

After going through the same problem today, the pc finally turned on properly and I got into Windows. A few moments after that, the electricity was cut.

Now the pc manages to load up until the Windows XP logo and then crashes. At the loading screen the pc makes three grinding sounds (don't know how to call this... my pc is purring at me ). A blue screen appears for a split second and the pc reboots. No matter what option I select, be it to load in safe mode, last good configuration, and so on, the pc always resets at the XP loading process.

I believe it has something to do with hardware because of the issue with the pc intermittently not even booting up.

I am not too savvy when it comes to pc's, can someone suggest what may be wrong?

A friend of mine is having some real issues with his PC. He is running win 7 home 64 bit and is experiencing regular BSOD's/crashes.

He has provided me with the attached images of what comes up after the error. I have also uploaded the zip file that I have generated on his pc with the DM Log Collector.

He said previously it was happening when playing games and watching youtube videos but can also occasionally happen randomly. So i uninstalled and re-installed his graphics card drivers (he has an amd r9 200 series graphics card) and also ran amd driver autodetect and it says he has the latest drivers.

I ran a stress test via furmark for 5 minutes yesterday and it was fine and temperatures were fine so I doubt it's overheating.

Anyone know what else I could try?

Thanks in advance!


A:Blue Screen crashes

The device driver is spinning in an infinite loop, most likely waiting for
hardware to become idle. This usually indicates problem with the hardware
itself or with the device driver programming the hardware incorrectly.
If the kernel debugger is connected and running when watchdog detects a
timeout condition then DbgBreakPoint() will be called instead of KeBugCheckEx()
and detailed message including bugcheck arguments will be printed to the
debugger. This way we can identify an offending thread, set breakpoints in it,
and hit go to return to the spinning code to debug it further. Because
KeBugCheckEx() is not called the .bugcheck directive will not return bugcheck
information in this case. The arguments are already printed out to the kernel
debugger. You can also retrieve them from a global variable via
"dd watchdog!g_WdBugCheckData l5" (use dq on NT64).
On MP machines it is possible to hit a timeout when the spinning thread is
interrupted by hardware interrupt and ISR or DPC routine is running at the time
of the bugcheck (this is because the timeout's work item can be delivered and
handled on the second CPU and the same time). If this is the case you will have
to look deeper at the offending thread's stack (e.g. using dds) to determine
spinning code which caused the timeout to occur

from what i can see there is a hardware problem which in turn has caused an issue with directX

I suggest starting all troubleshooting with the following diagnostic tests. They'll save you a lot of time and heartache if there is a hardware failure, and you'll have the disks on hand in case you need them in the future:

H/W Diagnostics:
Please start by running these bootable hardware diagnostics:

Hello my first and hopefully last Thread here! I found your apparently wonderfull site via a problem i have and i think you have already provided a solution for it!


In short i have been getting the Blue Screen crashes on starting all my games and once randomly using Winamp Visualisations.
My PC is very new and yes i believe it does have the Asus drivers mentioned in the Link above.
I am trying to follow the steps provided but im very cautious when it comes to IT stuff id much rather get help than use my own initiative and balls things up!

So i went to Nvidia to D/L the latest Drivers for my card but already i have a problem for starters im not certain what drivers my card needs On the Box it is called "Asus EN8800GT 1GB" I dont exactly see that listed on the Nvidia site. I then tried to use the automatic detection feature and it then asks for me to install an Axtivex Control provided by Systems Requirements Lab (which ive used before) However i click to Install that and nothing seems to happen ive left it for around 30 mins. I disabled pop up blockers and also went into Internet options and enabled prompts etc for Activex Controls but still it just sits there on the Initialising / installing component page and does not give me the info im after!

If i can get the correct drivers for my card downloaded onto desktop etc then i can follow the other steps outlined in the URL link abov... Read more
