as in the .exe file, which installs your driver, try that in safe mode

I would just force your video card to use that driver by selecting it from he device manager and pointing it tot he extracted file. That is, it is truly the correct driver and card.

Tried installing from the exe file in Safe Mode and it was as uneventful as all my other attempts.

To the poster above, how does one force the video card to use a specific driver?

Go into DM->click on properties of the device->hit update driver->Browse my computer->let me pick from a list of all devices->hit next->click have disk->browse to the location of where nVidia stored the installer files for the driver->choose the inf (you will see it appear when you hit that folder)

OK yes, already tried that multiple times, both in normal mode and in safe mode. According to the error message, the driver doesn't support this version of Windows. This, despite the fact that the driver is for Win7 64-bit. For the heck of it, I tried the Vista 64-bit driver and the result was the same.

This issue has me perplexed...all of our suggestions and know issues have failed...now unless I haven't read right, are you still using the RC? Have you tried a newer build?

Yes, Win7 RC 64-bit. Downloaded it last week so I imagine it's the most recent update. The card works fine under Vista 64-bit.

Found a Torrent for 7600 so we'll see how it goes with that. Thanks, I didn't even know a newer version existed.

But if you force the driver (select have disk and navigate to the file) it still says you cannot install it? I thought you could totally force any driver, regardless.
