Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I'm running windows 7 64 bit and Vista 64 bit. For some reason whenever I install the video card drivers for my nvidia Geforce 8500GT and restart the screen just stays black. I can hear the windows start up chime and if I press a few buttons I can get a sound or two so I know everything is loaded.
but i've got a black screen.
Safe mode works just fine. Then if I uninstall the drivers and restart the PC runs normally with the default VGA driver.
I've tried the last known good configuration but no luck. I have no idea why this started happening I just turned on the PC one day and it was problem city.
oh and i've tried the newest version of the driver as well as the oldest available on the nvidia site.
