No 7 is still fiinishing the installation..I just saw it because after the 1st reboot on windows 7 installation i have to disable my video card or also i get the black screen with a blinking cursor because of the conflict..and i didnt wanna risk it with the settings u told me to change because if it doesnt work and i get the black screen i have to restart setup all over. so im juist going to wait until its done and i get in windows 7. then i will install the driver and go for a reboot and hope for the best. ill let u know. u should have an answer in less than 10 minutes

It Failed. Stopped at starting windows frozen like usual. SIgh idk man =[ thanks for all the help. I guess ill just wait til tmr and go buy some random video card just to test things out. Even though it doesnt make any damn sense considering when i installed my drivers not too long ago in XP it went through like a charm. Every day i hate computers more and more. MOre like a love hate thing. But i swear. This has to be the most retarded issue that ive ever had. And one that no computer expert can just nail the pin in the head..i guess ill let u know what happens tmr. thanks for the efforts and suggestions man.

GPU looks to be screwed - depending on what card you want I've given recommendations.

so i ran out and got a new video card today just to test things out. it turns out that the windows 7 setup went through fine with stock BIOS settings and its working. so basically looks like it was my video card. Now..do you have any idea why it works properly in XP but not windows 7? i mean not i wanted to sell my 9800gx2 but it seems like i cant because if the person has windows 7 its not gonna work..this is pretty stupid. *shops for a video card online*

Which card did you buy? Maybe you should have tried installing 7, leaving the card enabled and see if default drivers woud work - you can also try slotting in the card now, but its up to you.
