First thx admin for a great site! This site got me start using server 2008. So thx !
My problem is that, when trying installing nvidia video driver i fails. Well installation run fine, but then when rebooting… It show the desktop for a few seconds, then my pc screen turn off. I did try the newest one for my Nvidia 7600GT and a beta… but still same problem.
I tryed while booting up, hit F7/F8, and tryed “Lowered resolution”. Too see if that was coasing the problem… but no.
Any help? Which drivers work and which dosen’t.

Thought I’d bump this, rather than start a new thread.
Had the same issue as above, but only first time starting pc, it would do the loading bar, but then screen would stay blank, restart, all fine.
After a random crash last night, I updated the drivers (nvidia 175.16). Now everytime, after loading bar, screen actually turns off (no signal).
If i start in safe mode , its fine. If i start in low res mode, still nothing. If i remove the nvidia driver, and use standard graphics driver (which on an AU$400 card hurts), windows is ok.
Have tried the driver that came with it (asus 174.40), but I’m not 100% sure with this windows it actually went back a version, it may have been using 175.16 (latest nvidia). Going to try latest Asus driver (174.74).
edit: Wiped a heap of nvidia files to force 174.74 to actually install. Still starts up crap, but the cable swap trick above worked.
Plugged in both analog and DVI (chimei/acer/benq 22 has both), now its on analog and seems ok.
Could be this screen’s DVI doesn’t pick up the signal properly, seems strange though.

I had frequently this issue when working with SLI on XP.
For some reason, sometime (couldn’t establish a pattern) the system assigned as primary display the TV (inexistent) or a 2nd (also inexistent) monitor.
I was connecting remotely with Dameware and configure the monitor as primary display and for a while everyting worked fine.
Hope this helps. Let us know how you solved it.

This is odd as im using a 9600GT and the latest beta Driver on server 2008 Ent x64
and not had a single issue. driver version is . 177.92
other than that my setup is a 22″ Iiyama WS runnign 1680×1050
perhaps its a failing of Direct x 10 compatabiltiy? have u checked DXdiag?
