It is probably that the blue screen is asking to change your screen resolution
instead of your video card, isn't it? or not?

If you're asking to change your screen resolution do this...

Restart your computer and after restart hit F8 (before load Windows)

Select "Safe mode"

Change your screen resolution

If you need to replace your video card, you have to get one new first, in that case the video card comes with the drivers to install it.
If you have one but without drivers, see the model and brand to get the drivers on the net.

Hi,

Blue screens causes your system not to boot properly. It could be a corrupted video driver, system registry or could be a problem with a hardware component of' your system. Windows update causes also blue screens and incompatible application installed in the system as well.

You may try to boot your computer to following option.

Last known good configuration
Safe mode with networking.

1. Restart the system. At the moment you are turning on your system. After pressing the power button.. Keep on tapping F8 key (on/off) until you have the message "Advanced boot option"

2. Select the 1st option: Last known good configuration.. Press Enter until you have your login screen. If it doesn't work you may try the second option which is the "safe mode with networking".

If the two option won't work, you may need to try repairing the operating system or reinstall windows.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.

The problem lies within your video card. Try to replace your video card please but be careful on doing so, unplug your computer first before changing your video card. don't forget the video card driver installation disk you'll need it. Hope this would solve your problem. From your humble fixya friend.Have a nice day.

Having blue screen problems and I saw some forums saying that it could be my nvidia video card?


Try redownloading the drivers for your Nvidia Graphics card, but make sure you download the proper ones. It could be the video card, but it could also be a number of other problems. Usually the blue screen will say near the top of it what the blue screen was caused by though.

Blue screen showing igxprd32 error


If anyone else is having this issue here is how you can resolve it.

Open regedit, find these two keys HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0000 and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0001, then delete the InfPath entries under them.

Reboot and install drivers direct from the manufacturer.

This worked. Nothing else on all other forums worked at all. I have changed the PCI bridge, attempted to reinstall the driver (both in and out of safe mode), and a multitude of other things. This is it. End of story.

LCD monitor screen blue


Either the VGA card or the monitor can not display the resolution correctly, so you need to get it back to where it was, this solution is for Windows users (not sure about other OSs), reboot your system and and get in the options start-up screen by pressing F8 at boot, choose safe-mode with VGA, if you see your desktop normally here then it's definately the screen resolution, set it back to a lower resolution (try 1024X768 and go downwards until it works fine), restart your system normally and you should be able to test new resolutions again, if it won't work using VGA mode then you might need to uninstall your VGA card but make sure that you have the correct driver for it before uninstalling, also please disable any onboard graphics card if you have one. I hope this would solve your problem, please feel free to ask if you any further questions regarding this matter. Thanks
