Windows 7: nVidia GeForce 9800M GT problem D:

nVidia GeForce 9800M GT problem D:

Hello there, i've been havin problems for the past 2 days regarding Windows 7 64 bit; first i installed the 32 bit version, as my Alienware m15x came with a Vista Ultimate 32 bit version, but Windows Update on Windows 7 made me get blue screen because of unknown issues, so i thought the 64 bit version of Windows 7 would help me.. but it didnt.

So, i became desperate and managed to find that in Device Manager, my nVidia GeForce 9800M GT driver was with a little yellow attention icon, so i clicked it and it turns out that "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"

So i was lookin everywhere, on different forums and i couldnt find a solution.. My graphics on Vista were lovely and i could get Aero up and running, but now everything seems laggy graphic-wise.. i went to the Alienware support page (My Hive) but there are very few drivers there and none of them were for my nVidia card... Even on the nVidia website, i let their software scan my computer for Graphic Drivers so i installed the one they recommended, and hoped it would work after the reboot.. but it didnt. Blue screen...

So im helpless, and i come to you guys with hope that you could help me.

Thank you for readin my wall of text and i hope you have an answer for me.

PD (if u need to control my computer [Via TeamViewer software which i trust] u may, because if that's what it takes, im down for it)
Oh and i also posted this on the Drivers forums cuz i didnt knew on which one was more appropriate

Hi,

These are the latest drivers for your card from NVIDIA

NVIDIA DRIVERS 197.16 WHQL

And these are the older drivers, you may want to try some of the older WHQL releases.

NVIDIA DRIVERS 195.62 WHQL
NVIDIA DRIVERS 186.81 WHQL
NVIDIA DRIVERS 186.03 WHQL
NVIDIA DRIVERS 185.85 WHQL
NVIDIA DRIVERS 185.85 WHQL

Those are all for Windows 7 64-BIT

I already have the 197.16 driver installed, and no luck...

EDIT: None of the drivers from Dell support or Alienware support apply for my graphics card. ):
