Alienware M5500/nVidia 7600 GO Problem! Help :(


Recommended Posts

I have an Alianware M5500 with a nVIDIA GeForce 7600 GO graphics card.

My computer randomly crashed, and when I restarted there were lines running through the alienware logo, the windows loading screen, and the login menu wouldn't show. My screen would just be all black. No matter how many times I restarted the same thing would happen.

I reformatted my harddrive, took out my graphics card and put it back in, re-set my C-MOS, I tried reinstalling all my drivers, and all of them worked except my video driver

i've tried installing multiple drivers but none of them work...

Then, a few days ago, I downloaded a driver off the alienware site and it worked! but only for a day. then the same problem happened.

I really have no idea what is wrong, but it obviously has to do with the graphics card/drivers. I would really appreciate some help!
