Can't boot Windows 7 with NVIDIA Drivers (BIG PROBLEM)

Hello, i've recently installed Windows 7 Home Edition and changed HDD because my last HDD crashed. So i've had this problem for about 2 weeks trying to figure out what it is with not much luck. My suspicions are that the NVIDIA drivers are messing this up because as soon as i install them my PC goes into startup repair and find no problems, I was able to boot in safe mode and disable the graphics card drivers and now i'm able to boot fine but the thing is Windows can't seem to find my graphics card or my monitor except if i update graphics card using Device Manager, however i tried installing latest NVIDIA drivers from NVIDIA's website for my GPU and even older ones with no luck, also reinstalled windows multiple times with no luck so far, i even updated bios and reset them a couple of times I've tried to research the problem but found no good solution so far. I'm getting insanely desperate and really need help! :) 

System Specs:
Asus Sabertooth P67 Motherboard
i7 2600k 3.4Ghz
GTX 680TI Twin Frozr III 4Gb
8GB Ram
2TB Seagate SSHD (Not SSD)
Fractal Design 650W PSU
Corsair H80i CPU Cooler

Note: While ordering the new HDD i also ordered a new monitor, mouse and keyboard

Razer Deathadder 2013 edition
Razer Deathstalker Keyboard
Asus VG248 144hz LCD Monitor





Don't...

I'd say it's a software issue, but it seems it isn't.
Could it be a power supply. or a monitor one (if using HDMI)?

Usually i do use HDMI but i've tried both DVI and HDMI, seems to be the same, problem still there

Some options:
-return the card (if possible) and get an ATI one ... I know, not really a solution.
-test the card in a different PC (if working, you would narrow the troubleshoot to the motherboard and CPU),
-try different NVidia drivers (versions),
-take the components to a local shop - see what they find.

BIOS are updated to newest version, i tried different nvidia drivers and i will try the card on a different PC as soon as i get the chance. Meanwhile any further advice will be helpfull :)

I would say the card is bad and nothing else. Try it in another system...
