258.96_desktop_win7_winvista_64bit !hangs!

Hello,

I have recently purschase a nvidia gtx 480 to upgrade current GT 8800.

I run window 7 pro on 64bit and i am having major problem installing nvidias current release (258.96_desktop_win7_winvista_64bit)

I have used driver sweeper to get rid of all nvidia drivers on my computer and i am still getting the same NONE responsive install.

The freeze or hang happens when nevidea lunches the install ( when the screens background is covered in nvidea logos and the status bar appears.

The Status bar never get past the video component heading which is about a 3rd of the way 30% of the status bar.

task manager says the the install is running but even after 45 mins into the install the progress bar still has not moved form 30%.

i have also tried using the 3d guru drivers and copied the "nv_disp" into the extracted ( extracted to a fold in my downloads folder) folder.

have also read the nvidea driver set up form start to finish thred and still not been able to get it working.

right now i have the GTX 480 card in my computer, tried updating the driver from right clicking the video controller vga in the device manager and windows said it found the driver but encounter a error on the install and timed out.

WTF

can some one please help me.
