Hello everybody,
Today, GeForce experience downloaded the latest BETA drivers and I decided to install them (I have a GTX 680). While installing the graphics driver, I got a BSOD (the sad face one, since I'm on Windows 8 and it says IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL). After I rebooted, I had no driver and my second monitor was not being detected (again because no driver). I tried installing the older WHQL one, but right when it started installing the graphics driver I got an error saying NVIDIA Installer failed and all the components showing Not Installed or Failed. I tried wiping the drivers with driver sweeper, also there were a lot of registry errors containing nvidia at ccleaner and also fixed them, but no success. After that I tried in Safe Mode but the same error happened again. Then I found my CD and tried from there, but the error was there again.
I would be grateful if you could help me in this situation as it is really frustrating.
Here are my PC Specs, if that could help:
Intel Core i7 3770
ASUS Sabertooth Z77
Corsair Vengeance 16GB Low Profile
KFA2 GTX 680 2GB
Intel 520 SSD 240GB
Fractal Design Newton 800W

Try clearing CMOS now. If that doesn't work. Try reseating your RAM. Then try swapping RAM slots or booting with one check to see if it runs. If you can post, try F8>> Last Known Good Configuration. Should help out wih your BSOD and you can check what is making it BSOD.

Hey, thanks for the quick response. I swapped out the RAM, cleared the CMOS but I still get the error. Also for some reason I cannot get into "Last Known Good Configuration". When I tap F8 I can just choose the booting device (because I have more HDD's) but after that it just boots into windows. Also I noticed another error showing up :
