Windows 7: Video driver causing BSOD after adding device to domain

Video driver causing BSOD after adding device to domain

I'm having a very strange BSOD. Here is what I can tell for sure.

1. System is dual boot with XP and Win7 pro.
2. Everything was working fine. I could boot to either OS.
3. I added the Windows 7 install to our domain.
4. I rebooted and BSOD 0x000000124.
5. I can boot to safe mode and from there if I strip off the nVidia drivers it will boot up fine. Unfortunately in immediately installs the drivers again once I reboot... BSOD.
6. I've tried every available nVidia driver for 7300 le. Default VGA drivers are not acceptable as I have 4 monitors to run off 2 cards and default VGA only gives acces to one card and one monitor.
7. I have spent 2 full days trying to find any sort of answer. There are a lot of issues with nVidia and Win7 BSOD. However, they usually seem to be after the PC boots and the user is in an application. My issue is on boot.
8. If I take it off the domain and remove the drivers, I can then reboot and install the nVidia drivers and they work fine. (Not acceptable as it needs to be on the domain.)

Any ideas on what to try? Or am I better off looking into an ATI chip graphics card to avoid more headaches with nVidia? If so does anyone have a suggestion on an equivalent ATI PCI-e card.

Apparently the issue only occurs when I have quad monitors set up. If I disconnect the monitors from the second card it will load drivers and boot perfectly. So I guess the question now becomes does anyone know of an issue that would cause Windows to BSOD on the second card intializing? Again, I'm thinking about just moving to ATI cards and using crossfireX to get all 4 monitors working.

I found that 1 of the ram's was corrupted, so I...

Sound Device / Driver Problems Causing BSOD
I have no clue - I have no sound, reinstall the driver, get a BSOD, reboot using Last Config that worked which gives me back my sound until I attempt to logoff, which hangs because Windows can't play the logoff tune. It eventually shuts down, but on reboot I have no sound. Repeat cycle.
