Windows 7: Sudden BSOD, Win7 only

Sudden BSOD, Win7 only

I'll try and keep this as brief as possible.

I have a dual boot system (Windows 7 and Xp Pro Sp3) on separate HDDs.

About a week after installing Nvidia driver 197.13, I booted in to 7, and my resolution was 640 x 480 with no other resolutions available. I have an EVGA GTX 275.

I uninstalled, and reinstalled the video drivers, rebooted, and got a BSOD.

Could boot in to Safe Mode, and my GTX 275 is recognized in Device Manager, as well as driver version.

Since then I have:

Reinstalled Windows 7 32 bit. BSOD before I even get to the Desktop.

Installed Windows 7 64 bit. Same result as above.

Tried Archived Nvidia driver v196.21, BSOD.

Installed my old video card (7900GTO)
No BSOD. I can get in to Windows 7, but when I first log on, the screen is just a bunch of diagonal lines.
This lasts for about 15 seconds and then clears up.
If I run any 3D graphics, again, nothing but diagonal lines. I have to Alt-F4 out of the program running the graphics to get my Desktop back.
If I open the Nvidia Control Panel, my screen blacks out momentarily.

Tried a different power supply (with GTX 275). Same problems

Tested HDDs with HDTune and ran MemTest. No problems reported on either.

Installed Vista (Home Premium) on Windows 7 disk (with my GTX 275), and everything is fine.
Same with XP, all is fine with the GTX 275.
Ran ATI-Tool in XP, and Nvidia's Cascade in Vista, and the GTX 275 is working just fine.

Analyzed the memory dump from Windows 7 and: "Probably caused by : nvlddmkm.sys".

I Googled that, and found similar cases, but no solutions.

I thought this might be a hardware problem, but the card works fine in Vista and XP.

Does anyone have any idea what might be causing the BSOD's in Windows 7?

Any help would be appreciated. I'm out of ideas.

Ken,

Thanks for responding. Yes, very frustrating, particularly that it only affects Windows 7. If you or anyone else has any ideas, I'm up for trying anything at this point.

By the way, I'm also seeking help at windows7forums.com. I've been dealing with this for over a week, and, as I said, I'm out of ideas.
Would it be okay with you if I posted this image over there?

Thanks again for the response.
