I installed windows longhorn 4051. It booted up and then i installed the driver for my graphics card. now windows won't boot any more
(the pc just reboots, when the windows flag comes up and the screen says "starting services")

maybe someone had this problem too

Extrasensory individuals are on vacation. What video do you have? What drivers did you install? Did you install them via installer or via Device Manager?

Try safe mode to delete video drivers. If doesn't work simply reinstall the system. Then try other versions / combinations.

hi
i have got a ati radeon 9550 se.

i tryed it a few minutes ago and i've got the same error. so i can say, that the driver of my graphicscard is responsible for the error...

unfortunatly - i cant go into the safemode - don't know why. i press f7, when the windows bootlogo comes up.

Strange, Radeon 9550 series are usually very friendly with Longhorn.

You may turn off automatic restart before installing driver. Do it according the following guide:

Quote:
1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.

2. Click the Advanced tab.

3. Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.

4. Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK the necessary number of times.

5. Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.


If it bsod's, we will know exact error information. Also you could probably try to install the newest drivers available here:

Safe mode isnt F7.

Its F8

This will show a advanced settings list.
After the BIOS Screen, press F8 a few times.

Thank you for your tipps :)
Well I did unisntall the old driver and installed it again through the device-manager (but this time I located the driver). Now everything works great.

I also downloaded the driver from the ATI page. But unfortunatly this thing checks, if you are using Windows 98(SE)-Windows XP. SO i couldnt install it.
