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.
After resetting the jumper back to my graphics card and booting up, the card does not function correctly. After I reinstall the driver, the one on the top of the EVGA list, I receive the same blue screen when I attempt to boot up Windows to run it.

Before I attempted to install the proper driver, this is what I saw in device manager. I guess these identical two automatically installed themselves, but the top one isn't functional.

Windows Update is configured currently to instantaneously update my drivers. After a reboot after I uninstalled all drivers, this was the error that popped up showing why the above occurs.



After I updated the driver, this is what the device manager / installer looks like. This is right before I restarted my system, which only led to a blue screen.

I am able to run my Radeon HD 4670 perfectly fine, though it uses ATi Radeon drivers instead of nVidia. At this point, after reinstalling Windows and attempting countless fixes (I have been talking to the support team at EVGA as well), I think I have come to the conclusion that this is not going to work.

My only concern is whether or not I will receive this problem with a different nVidia card if I were to replace this one. Is there any reason why my system would not be able to handle the particular nVidia driver even after installing a clean copy of Windows? I don't really understand why this would happen, why would a specific piece of hardware suddenly not be able to support a specific driver?

Should I proceed with an RMA, or should I try a few more things just in case?

Proceed with an RMA.

Wish I had a crystal ball and/or experience with all of the possible permutations of cards, motherboards, configurations and settings

I would have felt better with a solution that worked, but, alas, I failed.
Do let us know the outcome so that we can learn from this experience.
Thanks,
