Windows 7: Windows 7 Refusing to post after installing Latest Nvidia Drivers

Windows 7 Refusing to post after installing Latest Nvidia Drivers

Okay. This combination of drivers works fine in windows vista 32 bit.. boots up fine and everything. Today I finally got my SSDD for my OS and a copy of Windows 7 64 bit. I installed it fine without error. Then installed my chipset drivers that I downloaded off of Nvidia's website (64 bit, worked fine, rebooted), installed my nvidia display drivers, rebooted.. now whenever I start windows up. I get the flowery blue background windows logo. It just hangs there and never boots. However it will boot fine into safe mode and AFTER I uninstall the display drivers... though my gaming computer is going to be pretty useless if I can't game with it!

Relevant Info
Windows 7 64bit
Asus Striker II Formula (with 15.58 64 bit drivers installed)
2x SLI EVGA Geforce 560 TI 448 Special Edition (with64 bit 310.90 Drivers Installed)

I am going to try installing the motherboard chipset drivers from Asus's website to see if that helps any.. i believe the version number is 15.43, then try reinstalling the video drivers.. however I dont think this is going to make much a difference.

If anyone out there can help. Please. I need it.

Maybe you need to flash the BIOS. Is the latest build installed?

Try booting with only one GTX 560 installed to see if the problem is coming from the GPUs. Aren't the 310.90 drivers still in beta? Maybe downgrade that to the last stable build.

I actually got it working. It was the drivers.. for some reason the 310.90s would not work with windows 7, not sure why.. when I know a friend who has 550s, same drivers as me.. and windows 7 64 bit.. and his works fine.

Are you sure the 310`s are the right driver, because they are what come up for my 9600 GSO, GT`s etc. and I`ve used them for awhile.

Yep, same driver. I don`t know why they don`t work for you.

Did you do a custom/clean install of the drivers ?
