GT220 and W7 driver problem

Just built new system and everything ok until installed nvidia drivers for the gpu. On reboot just a blank screen following the startup - didn't make it to the password log on. Had to restart in SAFE mode and roll back nvidia drivers.
Tried bot DVI and Dsub but no joy.

System:
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
dual core E5200 cpu
3 Gb ram
Nvidia Geforce GT220 %12MB 128 bit DDR2 gpu
ABIT AB9 Pro M/B

Any help appreciated

I've read that there have been some issues with drivers since 191.07,
other threads I've read have said that 190.62 has worked ok for them, maybe give them a try?

Have you installed the Intel chipset driver from the ABIT website?

Also, do you have any other unknown devices in device manager?

(sorry about that last link, the european ftp site didn't like the direct link)

Also, I found this post which may work for you too. Seems like a few people are having the same problem as you with that card...

Thanks Orpheous, rang Scan and they reckon its a faulty gpu! Tried another monitor plus all combinations of DVI/Dsub with/without DVI to Dsub adapters - still no joy. Swapping for an ATI card!
