Windows 7: Getting a Error! Driver? or maybe Grapahic Card?

Getting a Error! Driver? or maybe Grapahic Card?

just joined the sevenforums

Running Window 7 right now
so yea i need help
i just bought a new video card (EVGA GTX260) yesterday and installed it and played with it with no problem....(one day later)......until now so basically here what happens now. when i boot up it goes through the "starting up" phase and when the window 7 says "Welcome" after that i just get a blue screen, no word no picture just blue!

So i press the reset button and i am only able to go to my desktop menu by safe mode! and if i try to go through "start up computer regular" it would just lead me to the blue plane screen....

The reason why i think it is the driver is because in safe mode i am able to uninstall my nvidia driver. Restart and WOW i am back to my "REGULAR" desktop menu but with no driver. SO as soon as i am on my screen Window 7 wants install the newly detected video card's drivers for me and i do. when i restart BAM! back to the blue screen

Any help?
Has this happen to anyone?
Is it my driver for sure? or Video card?

Could be a problem with the wdm 1.1 drivers, try the latest wdm 1.0 drivers. Since you did not list if your running 32 or 64 bit, here are the downloads for both.

32 bit driver
64 bit driver
