View Full Version : HELP! Blue screen stop error after removing Dets!
I'm running windows XP and i had GF2 MX400 and i just bought a 9500pro. when i got home i uninstalled my nvidia det drivers so i could install the card. when i uninstalled the dets it asked me restart so i did and right before it restart it gave me an error with a blue screen and a memory address. Even after i installed my new 9500pro and its drivers (cat 3.5) it still gives me this error when ever i shut down or reboot!
i took the easy way out, i'm reformatting my computer
heres the whole story
i just bought a 9500 pro today and i got home and i uninstalled my nvidia dets and right after i do, it asks me to restart, i click yes and it gives me a blue screen with a memroy address stop error. even after i've installed my new card it does that same error every time i restart or shut down the computer! i tried reinstalling my card and such but nothing seemed to work. i just reformatted and now im trying to install windows xp, but its having trouble writing to c: and now im running scan disk and im doing the full surface scan which will take 5 hours

Why dont you just write zeros to the drive? Its quick (depends on size and manfacturer) and painless. I write zeros t omy drive about twice every year to keep its speed up. Over time, access speed is decreased because of clutter ... blah blah blah. Screw the surface scan and go with the fat 0. Works all the time.

How do you write zero's to the drive?...now im interested in doing it to my computer. Oh and BTW Darth, good to see you stepped up from a gf2...to a 9500 pro finally. Don't you think you should get a new harddrive with all the trouble you've had with it?
Its called a low level format. To do it, you have to get software from your HDD maker. its about the only way to REALLY erase something

or if you wanted to earse something off your HD, you could whip out ur 12gauge shottie and blow the hell out of it, that would probably earse the HD and everything within 7 inches of it, so your better off just shooting it with a 9mm or .45! JK
