Go to sight above. That is Capt. Jack Sparrow on sevenforums.

nVidia Driver Cleanup Guide !! This is what you want to follow.

Should give you a clean install on the new graphics card.
I hope!

You have the new driver in a zip folder so you won't have to download again.
Unzip and install when you get to download new driver step at end.

Okay I managed to get windows to start without a BSOD using Lordbob's guide. But now in the device manager there's a caution sign over the graphics card. And the device status say "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)" Also there are scattered blue and yellowish lines across the screen now.

Hopefully someone with more experience will come on this evening.

Just bite the bullet and get another video card.

If your card is OCed, turn it back down.

It sounds to me like it is artefacting (in addition to driver issues, which could be similarly caused), but I want to check it.
If you can get TechPowerups GPUZ, run the stability tester (as shown in my tut) and check to see if it has errors.

If so, I would strongly suspect that the card is dead/dying and you may as well replace it.

It might be beneficial to clean off old drivers first (from safe mode), restart and reinstall the new nvidia drivers.
