Problem updating drivers

I'm working on a custom built NLE Workstation with an XLR8 card onboard (WinXP Pro SP3.) The card has been working since we built it a few months ago. However, when another tech inadvertantly tried to update the drivers, the display went dead after the display wizard uninstalled the drivers. Upon reboot when the wizard was supposed to automatically reinstall them, we get a warning beep from the motherboard (EVGA nforce 780i SLI) and no 'automatic reinstall.' We then rebooted in Safe Mode the display came up just fine but, it freezes the USB mouse and keyboard so we can't interface with the system. I even dragged out an oldschool p2 mouse and keyboard and it did the same thing. We couldn't figure out any way around it the last time this happened, the only solution was to wipe the drive and start again. Unfortunately, doing so corrupted 4 out of the 5 drives used in the workstation and had to be replaced. I do not want to go through that again! Any ideas? Suggestions? HELP!

SOURCE: Installed new graphics card and Windows won't start

If your new video card has a power connector, make sure it is connected to a power plug. If you already did that, it's possible your PC's power supply doesn't have enough power to run all your connected equipment.

To get your old card running, hit F8 repeatedly during boot-up until you get the boot options. Select VGA mode. It should boot up properly then.

Once booted into VGA mode, set your screen resolution to something simple like 1024x768 or 800x600, then reboot.

If that doesn't work, try hitting F5 repeatedly during boot-up to boot into Safe mode. You can then adjust your settings again there.

It is a known issue. It is not a fault with the card, but a power saving method used by Nvidia. If the card is not being stressed, or even if it is, it will clock down to it's 2d speeds. This is fine if you are just surfing the web or other light tasks, but can cause chaos if you are gaming or folding at home.

You can force your card to run at it's maximum clocks in 3d mode by using a program called Riva Tuner. There are several good posts on the net on how to use this fix, but I can't seem to link to them as this site will not allow me??

I am using it myself, as I had the same issue with my 2 GTX 260's.

Reseating the card is a good idea. Also make sure it isn't getting too hot. I suggest updating your Nvidia Drivers here.

I have a aark24 installed on my computer windows xp operating system and cubase sx3 The Aark 24 is not working My latest driver update is 7.13. is there maybe a update driver software available?


Aardvark is only stable with xp sp1. 7.13 and 7.14 are the last drivers ever made. They were made prior to SP2
You will have to pull the pci card, delete all the aardvark drivers and reinstall windows. Then go to windows update and install everything up to SP2. The stop and turn off auto updates. Dont surf after that. Unplug any internet connections.
