CDRK Posted October 23, 2008 Report Share Posted October 23, 2008 (edited) Greetings, First of, I apologize if this problem has been posted before, but I tried several searches, with result, but I keep getting the same problem. I did get some info in several threads but with no result. Now I am posting in Safe-mode because I cant get my normal windows to function propertly. Let me explain. * Laptop Make/Model & Graphics Card Ahtec Sense XFL90 15,4 NVIDIA 8600MGT 512MB CAM/BT CPU INTEL CORE2DUO T7500 (2,2Ghz/800Mhz/4MB) (Sorry I don't know my Device ID?) * Current working Driver Version & Last Useable Driver Version Well I guess none now. The one I had installed before this one was I believe in the 160's. * Operating System Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 (32bits) * An accurate description of the issue at hand I've tried several drivers from this forum. The one I had installed before this problem occurs was some where in the 160's drivers. I am sorry I already uninstalled that driver and forgot wich one it exactly was. If there is a way to know wich one it was, let me know and Ill try and find out. Now when I wanted to install new drivers I believe I uninstalled the old one and tried to install the new one, wich was 180.42 It didn't work, so I tried several older ones. I searched the forum for drivers wich people suggested for the 8600m GT. (with the uninstall/install included) After the installation was finished my laptop had to reboot and so it did. It shows the vista loading screen, sometimes it shows the vista logo screen as well. But after that the screen gets totally black. It happens that the screen is already black before the vista logo screen and I can hear the sound, wich it makes when it gets on the vista logo screen. So I know it's there but the screen is just black. Since I know after the logo screen I have to log in my account, wich I can do while it is having the black screen. Also I can hear when logging in is finished and after that my screen stays black. Today I searched the forums again and tried cleaning the laptop from drivers using http://forums.laptopvideo2go.com/index.php?showtopic=18820 how to clean thread. I followed it completely, installed driver sweeper and it worked out in Safe mode. still After uninstalling the Gfx card it tells me to reboot. I did but it re-installs directly after reboot and I cant cancel it. So I tried it with those drivers, but with failed results. Now I have 179.13 installed but when I go back to normal windows mode it agains gives me the black screen. So I have to reboot again and can only "see" in Safe Mode. I've to admit I don't know that much about graphics cards and drivers, but I read alot and follow guides. I know it's hard getting the laptop drivers. Normally I wouldn't ask because I am more of a lurker then being active on the boards, but I really need it fixxed. Also because I have an Ahtec, wich I rarely see anyone else posting with/about it. I heard it's almost the same as Acer/Asus/Compal, altho I am not sure..I am in my holidays, but do have college stuff. I could do it in Safe mode, but I really just want it fixxed :s. I hope you guys can help me in the good direction because I don't know what else to do now. Thanks in Advance, If you need to know more, please do let me know! * attached NERD log Please go here: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=N09LOGZN because I got this error: Upload failed. Please ask the administrator to ensure the uploads directory is writeable /edit I forgot to mention that I can get back in normal windows mode by uninstalling the driver, but that doesn't fix it and I then have no new/up-to-date driver :) is this my Device_ID?
