Windows 7: Geforce 8600GTS Black Screen

Windows 7
Geforce 8600GTS Black Screen


Can anyone please help me with this problem.
Any game I try to play in windows 7 x64 just produces a black screen when run causing me to reboot as I can't press any keys to come out.

I have already tried the usual things disabling my firewall, anti virus, trying different drivers I am currently using version 185.85 as none above this seem to work or none at all seem to work!

I dual boot with vista x64 and strangely the games work fine in vista x64 but no go in windows 7.

I also have installed direct x9 from microsoft's website

Tried all driver revisions up to 190.38, no go

Any help would be appreciated
