Windows 7: windows not working properly

windows not working properly

Installed Windows 7 on a new build-ssd. Windows loaded and worked properly, and was able to access anything I tried to.

Installed driver for graphics card. After restart, windows shows desktop background. No icons and unable to open start menu from windows key. I am able to right click and open SOME things that way, but others will NOT open. I was able to delete drivers in safe mode, then windows worked fine again.

Now, I've installed the mobo driver and the graphics card driver. I am having the same problem.

I have run a memory check and hard drive check. I have also made sure the icons are suppose to be displayed. I have installed all windows updates.

Any ideas on what to try next?

**Also, just checked and our windows activation says Status: not available, Product ID: not available. And this is still in safe mode. (I am using a different computer)

***While NOT in safe mode, we went to try to activate it, it says 3 days until activation, and then clicked on activate now, but it does nothing (part of our limitations we are experiencing)

We booted in the base video boot, which did allow windows to work properly (screen distorted though). It does say windows is activated.

What does this mean when it works in this boot, but not normal startup? Is there something we need to be looking for? Changing?

We had to uninstall the graphics card driver and install an older version!
