Windows 7: What nvidia driver that works with Windows 7

What nvidia driver that works with Windows 7

Hi there.

I just made a clean installation of Windows 7 and during the installation the pc reboots and made it to the booting screen. After that the screen went blank and the monitor turned into sleep mode. After many hours of troubleshooting, i found that my display driver may have some issue with Win 7 thus preventing it from loading. I managed to finish the installation by disabling the display driver.

Now the problem. I tried to install the latest driver available via Nvidia website but the same problem occurs, the blank screen when starting windows. I tried also using Windows update to get the driver but it has the same effect. Now without knowing what to do anymore, I tried the oldest win 7 nvidia driver but failed. No display. I also tried to disable some startup programs and services in msconfig. I do not know what to do anymore.

Some suggested that I need to turn off the onboard display, but my machine doesn't have one.

I also tried to swap my monitor, test the graphic card with other pc( with xp and vista) , and it works fine.

Below are my spec:
HP m9098d with HP w1907 lcd
Windows 7
Geforce 8500GT

I hope someone can give me some hope. I'm very tired troubleshooting this for two whole days.

p/s: Right now I'm only using the standard Vga driver.

Windows 7 should automatically provide you with a working driver, though it will most likely be outdated. Use this tool to find your driver:

NVIDIA Unified Graphics driver update resolves issue with the system displaying a black screen and system hanging when resuming from sleep mode.
Have you tried installing the Vista driver in Compatibility Mode?, and are you 32 or 64bit?

Erm, the compatibility mode is for running a program which couldn't run on win 7 right? But i'm not running any programs here. In fact, i cannot see anything when windows starts. Its pure black and the monitor turned into sleep mode.
