check your power settings, can you see anything on screen when you are using the standard VGA driver? :)

So can you only use the computer in safe mode?

Yes, I can see the desktop with the standard vga but with no aero and jaggies video playback.

@FZ21Z :No, I can boot into windows normally if I disable/uninstall the display driver.

Oh well, It seems that both drivers didn't work. I dunno what to do. I've also tested almost all releases of nvidia drivers still doesnt seems to be working.

My conclusion...I need to get a new card.

Thanks for your support guys. Thanks again. I really appreciate it.

Hi, darkasrzerotwo,

I had an ancient card which is the GeForce 7950GX2, and it got not any problem to install most of the Nvidia Drivers. In these few days, I did test 197.13, 197.15, and 197.25. All could be installed though the digital vibrance function disappeared ...
Rolling back to 196.62 released 2009-11-20 (you may find it here), and it works like a charm again.

Your card is newer than mine, and I believed you would be able to find a suitable driver for your card.

Good luck~~

Some steps you could try, but do this exactly....

Uninstall the current driver (yes I mean the VGA one), ensuring you select Delete the driver software for this device if the option is available, and REBOOT.

When Windows restarts it will reinstall a driver for your display, so let that complete.

Go HERE, and download the driver, and download the attachment in this post. Click on the newly downloaded driver exe, which will extract the driver to a new folder.

Then copy the inf I've attached (after extracting it), in to the 195.81 folder, which should prompt you to replace the original inf. (if it doesn't, it will not work, and you've done something wrong.)

Then run the setup.exe, let it install, say yes to any warning messages (should only be one), and reboot when prompted. I have wrote a basic guide here - NVIDA Driver Install - Start To Finish, which is basically what I've described above but with more detail.

If that methods fails then I'm out of ideas.

Whew!! It finally works! Thanks FZ21Z :) And thank you for the guide too.

@woolswell : Yea, thanks for the advice. Somehow my card can only work with a certain driver release. Any newer release will render it unusable. Btw, i'm thinking of getting a new card, with my current budget, I think i'll get a GT240. Last time i checked, it supports Win 7.
