Is your add-on card on the MS compatibility list? see: Windows 7 Compatibility: Software Programs & Hardware Devices: Find Updates, Drivers, & Downloads
I disabled the onboard VGA from BiOS in order to use my card.

If I remove the add-on card, I will not receive input to my monitor unless I re-enable onboard VGA and plug my monitor cable in to the motherboard port rather than in to the graphics card's port.

My add-on card is on the MS compatibility list.

Does your add-on card also have the Window LOGO?
Remember: compatible is what the mfg says. Logo means MS has tested the card and given the card their stamp of approval.

There are, however, many compatible, non-logoed devices which work fine.

To receive the logo,the mfg must pay MS for the testing and then if the device passes, the logo is given.

sorry to piecemeal this, but I've had to read up on various elements of your system.

What is the version number of the latest graphic driver package that you installed?

Where did you get the "latest" drivers?

The box and manual do not feature the Windows logo, so I suppose not.

I tested various drivers from here. (GeForce 500 family, OS windows 64 bit)

I also used the one which nVidia's website recommended, which I assumed is the latest, here.

I have tried: 306.23, 306.02, 301.42, 296.10 all with the same results

Fuzzwolf,

The following snip is from the evga site, 500 series, win 7 x64 drivers
Attachment 232114

My suggestion:
download the latest correct driver.

Do NOT install at this time.

once again, put the jumper to the onboard graphics.

Boot up.

Use Device Management, (devmgmt.msc) and disable, then uninstall all of the drivers for your evga card.

shut back down,
reset the jumper to use your graphics card.

Do NOT install any drivers.

Does the card work correctly?

If no, then :
Install the driver you just downloaded.

Without running any drivers (after uninstalling with onboard VGA), I do receive a display but it does not fit my entire monitor like it would if the drivers were running. Upon installing the driver after, I still receive the same blue screen if I try to boot up normally with them since a restart is required.

Thank you for your help so far, though. I really appreciate it.

I attempted to install the latest one (306.02) which was recommended on the nVidia website. This is what I have after uninstalling that driver since I cannot load Windows with it (default VGA drivers are running right now because I'm in onboard mode)
