I think the issue lies with graphics card. I'm able to run the PC in Safe Mode. This is where I uninstalled the driver for the display adapter ( NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460). I then started the PC up normally and reinstalled the driver, which I downloaded from the Nvidia website. To complete the reinstall I'm asked to restart the PC, and this is where blue screen reappears with the same message.
I would be grateful to receive some help on this issue. My PC is a Dell Studio XPS 8100 and is running Windows 7 Home Premium.
I have an unused graphics card, in original box with drivers CD, which is pretty basic, but it works, NVidia GeForce 8400 GS, 512Mb. You are welcome to have it to try out in your pc. If you would like me to send it to you, contact me via my "envelope" next to my name and I will get it off to you. It will not run modern games, but if it works for you, then you know the pc is OK and you may then want to splash out on a more powerful card.
If you look at the rear of your PC you should find your graphics card connections and also your mobo's connections. If you have onboard gpu chip you should see another gpu port or ports in a line vertically. If you have then physically remove the card and connect to the motherboard's gpu port. Try that.
Because you remove the dedicated card then BIOS will automatically enable the onboard one.
