Windows 7: GFX Driver Kernal recovers leads to constant BSODs, unable to boot

GFX Driver Kernal recovers leads to constant BSODs, unable to boot


I have been having no end of trouble with my video card. I purchased an open box card from EVGA a month ago, which I had to RMA. After replacing my old card and changing the clock/voltage with MSI Afterburner, I started getting constant black screen + "Nvidia Display Kernal Driver *something* version XXX has stopped and recovered". After a week of this, I changed the MSI Afterburner settings back to stock, at which point I bluescreened, and continue to blue screen upon trying to boot the OS past the Windows logo. I am currently in SafeMode and can't seem to boot past that. I have had the GFX card since 2010 and have never once had an issue with it. I will upload the DM Log when it completes, running now.
