GeForce driver won't finish install on Dell Inspiron 530
Posted on 2010-01-02
I am trying to install a new GeForce GT240 in my Inspiron 530 with Windows 7 (upgrade from Vista). I uninstalled the Intel GMA driver/software that came with it, powered down, installed the new card and powered up. Then I proceeded to install the software provided by EVGA. The installation ran, then asked for a reboot. On reboot, POST went by, Windows logo came up and then the screen went black.
I have tried several different steps to get this to work. Remove card, uninstall software, go to EVGA download latest driver, re-install - same results. Event log doesn't provide any insight into the driver load problem.
Next, I rebuilt the computer from with Vista Home Premium with SPs, without Dell drivers, and upgraded to Windows 7. The driver install did the same thing again.
