    Re: BSoD with nvidia GeForce GT 430 graphics card

    I uninstalled Symantec and installed the nvidia GT 430 card. I tried to update the AMD drivers in regular mode but was unable to to do due to BSoD. I rebooted in safe mode and tried once again to update the AMD drivers but the AMD catalyst control panel could not load the detection application and the driver installation failed.

    Thus, I removed the GT 430 card and in regular mode I was able to install the latest drivers available in both the AMD Catalyst packages and optional downloads (via ATI Catalyst)

    After this was completed I restarted as instructed. I then shutdown and installed the GT 430 card yet again and started in regular mode. A prompt appeared that I did not have the proper AMD display driver and soon after this message I received the BSoD again.

    I checked the drivers folder and the ahcix64s.sys has been updated to a 2009 version (previously 2008).
    Since the AMD driver installation control panel is detecting my current system, I am wondering if it is not providing the proper driver updates as I am unable to connect the GT 430 card. Is this possible? The only way I can run the driver updates is to take out the GT 430 card otherwise I get BSoD everytime.

    I have also attached the latest BSoD details generated after I uninstalled Symantec and updated the AMD drivers as described above.

    Thanks in advance for all the help so far.

    That could be a problem since the PCIe bus only provides 25 watts. The extra plugs can up that substantially. Take a look at the documentation to see if you can plug into your graphics card from your PSU. I can't see any connections on the card from the pictures.

    Sorry, you posted while i was replying to your other post.

    I can't figure out why it's asking for a AMD display driver when you're using a NVIDIA card.

    It's as if Vista is not treating it as a pnp device. Did you get an installation disc with the card?

    Unfortunately the only connection is the PCI Express x16 on the GT 430 card...no supplemental power conenctions. My previous nvidia card (GeForce 9600 GS) had the PCI express connection along with a 2 pin plug that connected to the motherboard.

    I received an installation disk but I get the BSoD during installation. When the new graphic card is installed I am unable to update/install any drivers as I always get BSoD. Even with the new card disabled and working off VGA display I get BSoD.

    Can you run the installation disc in Safe Mode?

    I would uninstall ATI Catalyst since it's for a AMD card.

    Hmmm. I don't recall if the disk worked in safe mode. Let me give it a shot in safe mode and I will get back to you. When I install the new card it should appear in device manager under "display" correct? Should I keep the driver settings to ask before downloading and installing?

    As said you should not have the catalyst software in, it is for amd/ati video cards.

    You have an amd board though.

    You need the drivers from here: Software & Driver Downloads HP Pavilion Elite m9515y Desktop PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

    or better yet, theses chipset drivers: AMD Chipset Drivers

    It may.. but safe mode loads just the bare drivers, and you'll need to reboot to normal after installing.

    Thanks Patonb and wither 3. I'll uninstall catalyst, get the AMD Chipset drivers per your link, install the new card and run the installation disk from Safe Mode, and reboot to normal.

    Patonb- unless it's got something to do with the motherboard being proprietary (as HP and all the others do), I wouldn't think he would have to use a graphics card driver from HP unless he had a laptop. Hopefully it will work out either way.
