Problems installing Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 Ti Drivers

Hi all,

Thanks in advance for any answers you may have.

I recently built a new PC from scratch. M friend and I built it, and everything went well.
I installed Windows 7 64-bit and the motherboard drivers and all wen well.
Then I attempted to install the GPU drivers for the card listed above. After installing them, and restarting my PC, Windows stops on the "Windows is Starting" screen. It's really frustrating, as I need this PC for 3D work.
I have some theories as to why this is.
Is it a GPU error (broken on delivery) or is the Motherboard (listed below) incompatible with the card. I am pretty certain, everything was built properly, but that may the reason.

Thanks for any help (specs listed below)

Yes. I tried from both the Device Manager, and from downloading it off the Nvidia website. Bot times, same result.

Can you remove the card and use the onboard graphics and boot up fine?

Booting up works fine without the graphics card drivers installed, if that's what you mean. I'm pretty sure if I removed the graphics card as well, it would boot up as well.

Make sure the driver isn't a beta driver. Those can mess things up sometimes.

go to http://www.nvidia.in/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-in there select Automatically find drivers for my NVIDIA products. That will automatically detect your card and operating system and will lead you to accurate drivers just for that card to do so u must have installed java on your system.

I'll try that now, I'm not very optimistic however.

Just tried that, Same problem, it's looking more like a broken gpu, than a driver problem.
