GTX 285 for Mac in Windows 7 x64 (boot camp) - Black Screen
Tuesday, August 23, 2011 8:36 AM
Installed Windows 7 HOme Premium x64 on my 2008 Mac Pro (8 core with GTX 285 for mac) using bootcamp, and all went well. Being that I wanted to do some gaming in Windows, I downloaded and installed the latest nvidia drivers, and ended up with a black screen after installation. No cursor, no nothing - just a black screen. On reboot, the boot sequence is normal, I get the Windows splash animation screen, but then the same black screen in Windows (before the login screen even comes up).
I was able to restore my system to the drivers installed by boot camp (or windows not sure where it came from) and it works, but the driver is several years old and the latest games aren't supported.
Does anyone know if the drivers are the problem? Is this card suppported by the latest nvidia drivers? Am I stuck with the old ones on this card?
Thanks for any info.
