ok so i've jsut built this system:

intel core 2 duo e8500 (3.16 Ghz)
GIGABYTE GeForce 9800 GTX+
640 GB HD
750 Watt Zalman power supply

and ever since i tried to update the driver windows won't boot. so i have been running fine with just the driver that comes on the cd. im running service pack 3 and i have a feeling that this might be part of the issue. any feedback or help is much appreciated. has anyone had any similar issues?

turn off the overclock
turn up the mem voltage

reload the drivers

i suspect your drives are curpt due to poor oc
or memory settings

you say the e8500 is stock so it must be ram


remove the drivers - get rid of all nvidia programs
you may even delete the drive your screen will go black - reboot and vista will load a driver
try reloading the nvidia drives again

run you ram at 2.05-2.1v and 5-5-5 ddr800

do you have your ram at 1333? if so that is bad, if it is 667 that is ok

turn the cpu to 1600 and run the ram 800
