Problem with the NVIDIA video chip on System Board

I'm having the same problem with my dv9233. You should be able to boot into Windows Safe mode. Hold down the F8 button while booting, and select Windows Safe mode with networking.

Why don't NVIDIA appear in safe mode?

I believe it's because when Windows is in Safe mode it only loads a very basic driver so that problems can be troubleshot without rogue video drivers causing problems. The correct driver should load when Windows is restarted normally.

Acer Aspire 5520G and Nvidia 8400M G. I have tried to install newest drivers from Nvidia official page, but after restarting my windows 8 freezes at home screen.

Booting Into Safe Mode on Windows 8

The trick is to hold the Shift button and mash the F8 key, this will sometimes boot you into the new advanced "recovery mode", where you can choose to see advanced repair options.
You will need to click on the Troubleshoot option.
Now select Advanced Options.
Now choose the Windows Startup Settings option, by the looks of things we were never meant to find Safe Mode.
Finally hit the Restart button.
Like magic, when your PC reboots you will be able to boot into Safe Mode from the familiar looking Advanced Boot Options screen.

White screen with vertical lines, can't do anything

Can you bootup in Safe Mode?
Press F8 when you bootup.
Then select LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION. then check the Device Manager to see if the Video driver is OK and enabled. If OK then shut down and bootup again to see if it boots up normally.
If this doesn't work select SAFE MODE instead of Last Known ......
When Windows starts then select a Restore Point prior to the installation of the driver update and when it boots up again with luck it will be OK. The graphic card update maybe causing the problem.

hi dear

oh so sorry to hear that

this methode for windows Xp

and let try this

Microsoft Windows Vista users Tip: If you are running Safe Mode because you cannot get into Windows you may want to first try loading the last known good configuration. Additional information about this mode can be found on document CH000626
To get into the Windows Vista Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.
Note: With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message. If this occurs, instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key", tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.
Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe mode - If after several attempts you are unable to get into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe Mode as the computer is booting into Windows, turn off your computer. When the computer is turned on the next time Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the Safe Mode screen.
Choose Advanced Options for: Microsoft Windows Vista
Please select an option:
Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable low-resolution video (640x480)
Last Known Good Configuration (advanced)
Directory Services Restore Mode
Debugging Mode
Disable automatic restart on system failure
Disable Driver Signature Enforcment
Start Windows Normally
Description: Start Windows with only the core drivers and services. Use
when you cannot boot after installing a new device or driver.
