win7 ultimate / virtual box
BSOD cannot update gfx card drivers :/

ok over the past month or so I have been trying to solve a problem with my win7 installation (build 7232.0.1md64fre.winmain.0980610-1900)

after a fresh install I had to find the smu drivers for my biostar MB and windows installed it's own video driver dated april 09. the gfx card is a 9800GTX+ has the bios

now since then I haven't been able to install any of nvidias driver updates and windows own driver update for my my gfx card, what happens is I install the driver then my system reeboots and as the driver loads after reeboot I simply get a blue screen error

I have tried various methods of unninstalling the drivers first and also using "" and also unninstalling my antivirus but none of these make any difference I still get the blue screen error "System_Service_Exception" stop 0x0000003B etc etc file mentioned is "nvlddmkm.sys"

now I can continue to use the OS by going into safe mode and removing the driver and letting windows install the default driver, but the tweaker in me is determined to get to the route cause of this problem

Is this something specific to this build or do I have a corrupted driver file somewhere or is there something simple I need to do with possibly the registry

If anyone can offer any help I am happy to try
