i'd suggest a clean install, and see what that does.

 

 

Don't know if it's something bad I've done in life, but it took me a THIRD clean ddu install of my graphics drivers (I unchecked all 3d stuff, and the Nvidia audio driver) and it's ok now it works as intended

 

One thing, I just hope that mouse issue goes away by itself.

 

Thanks for your help and rapid replies regardless. Much appreciated! :)

 

im gonna mark it solved for now might reopen it if it happens again.

 

Also, I tried booting into my main os on my other SSD (windows 10 1809 fast boot and hibernation fully disabled) and then back into my windows 7 install it's all good

 

Let's hope it sticks,  thanks again

 

Edit It also made os more responsive and fixed some pretty jammy issues with GeForce experience

Basically, when I booted, the above video happens. The login screen and welcome screen did not appear at all, but I could boot in and login and use the os

 

This started happening completely out of the blue. I made no changes to the system at all.

 

Then, on a third reboot, a serious issue happened, where all drivers were missing. Here is what happened:

 

1. I log in, and the login screen and welcome screen appear as normal

 

2. When I see the desktop, the notification tray icon has a big red cross, which is what happened when I first made the install and there were no drivers on it.

 

3. Then, I noticed my keyboard, mouse, wireless numpad, controller, absolutely nothing was working. Nothing

 

4. Then a "device driver has been installed successfully" thing came up and then the OS COMPLETELY FROZE. I could not do anything and was forced to reboot.

 

5. I then booted into safe mode with command prompt and ran sfc /scannow but it said everything was ok

 

During this I also ran devmgmt and there were like 50 other devices saying no drivers installed, some of them usb port.

 

6. I then booted off my install disk, and opened CMD, ran chkdsk C:\ /f but all was ok too

 

7. I toggles intel vt-d on and off in the os, then it went back to the behaviour shown the video I linked at the very top of this post.

 

8. Suddenly its fine, but still has the issue in the yt video at the very top of this post. OS works normally otherwise in this state

 

I am still not satisfied. None of this used to happen last week, none of it. I made no changes to the os or my bios or anything. How can I fix this?

 

I've tried clean installing the latest GPU drivers with DDU and nothing has changed. I'm very confused.

 

Please help, quite scared for my files. Some driver is messing up somewhere.

 

All help widely appreciated :)

 

 

IMPORTANT EDIT

 

I booted in (with the same issue described at the very top in the yt video) and I see this in device manager

ON TOP OF ALL THIS

 

Seemingly randomly my mouse won't work, it's razer deathadder chroma, razer synapse installed and working, I have to plugin a different mouse

few things i'm immediately thinking of:

- slightly unstabile overclock messing up OS functions

- your boot media or it's sata connection took a huge dump

- OS files got corrumpted

All three of these are incorrect

 

1. I don't overclock, I would have stated that in the post

 

2. I just checked all of my drives, all ok

 

3. Read the post

1. i seem to be reading over that bit..

 

2. there's things checkdisk doesnt catch, for example a wonk sata connection.

 

3. it wouldnt be the first time sfc /scannow misses things. it's not magic, you're using software to check its own operation.

1. I said, I would state if I had an active overclock, if I was overclocking.

 

Any suggestions then?

Update: it didn't stick. Today, out of nowhere, windows failed to load all drivers except the display ones. No mouse, no keyboard, no internet, nothing. It's seemingly random.

 

Any ideas?

 

Edit: fixed simply by booting into safe mode then back out again. But it will happen again because this "fixed" it last time. What is this?
