hello can anyone please help me ive just formatted my pc with windows 7 64bit & before the windows updates installed i got a baloon bottom right of screen saying "Nvidia display driver stopped working" then the screen went black then back to the normal screen then i noticed hundreds of red dots all over my screen?

so i went to Nvidia & downloaded there newest driver for my cards & rebooted BUT it STILL does the same?
now im in SAFE MODE and its ok there is no problem.? but if i boot in normal mode the screen stays black?
PLEASE help..

I would uninstall all graphic card drivers completely - shutdown - remove your card from the slot - reboot - shutdown - reinsert your graphics card - reboot - find latest drivers and install.

See if you can roll back the Nvidia driver to an earlier one. As later Nvidia drivers are not compatible with Windows 7.

I take it that you are running a 64 bit chip?

sounds like the card need a new one

sounds like the card need a new one.

ps is the Monitor set to correct resolution? as this can also be the Problem. You Should be able to change it in Safe Mode check refresh rate. it should be set to 60hz

This particular part of your error suggests your VGA card has failed.
A fair test at this point would be to try another...

i belive its the driver.?

If you have rolled back your drivers, uninstalled and reinstalled the latest from manufacturers website and you still get the same issues, i still fear you card is dying...

It could be the ram chip on your card failing...
