Windows 7: GTX260 bad in Windows 7?

GTX260 bad in Windows 7?

Some people inhere told me, that my videocard are to blame for the "error", that I don't see the new Windows 7 logo at boot, but instead seing the green squares moving from left to right as in Vista.
"Low resolution", "bad video performance" are some of the answers I have got. Is my videocard really that bad in Windows 7? In games I don't have any troubble.

It happens both in x86 and x64 from the very first boot when installing Windows 7. How do I come around this?

Or has it something to do with my monitor using a "wrong" resolution before Windows has loaded its drivers? (Samsung SyncMaster 2493HM)?

Let me ask you a quick question are you attempting to do an upgrade or is this a clean install?

Sven, I had this problem a little while back and found a very simple solution. When I had my PC hooked up to my 42" TV via an S-Video to Component adapter, I would get the Vista loading screen. However when I switched over to an HDMI hookup, the problem went away.

It is hooked up with HDMI cable, and I have also tried DVI, but it remains the same. Only vista squares.

I have installed Vista x64 driver for the monitor, but still no luck.

No.

Booted from USB-stick. When reach the stage to select drive to install to, I choose "format drive". Then installed clean on an empty drive.

I really don't get it

Try to install the monitor driver under vista comp. (right click the file, select properties and select compatibility)
