try removing the moniter drivers
because most moniter dont need drivers
or i think the moniter drivers are corrupted
see remove the moniter drivers,remove the graphic card drivers and then restart
and then install the nvidia graphic card drivers

when you remove the drivers the preloaded windows 7 drivers are installed why dont u leave it as it is

test games and see whether the performance is same as that of xp

i found this in one thread
As easy at it seems I located and installed the right driver for my graphics card from nVidia (GeForce Go 6100) and left the resolution at the highest. Next I went to Start > Control Panel > Auto Updates and checked for updates. under Extra updates (Optional) I had to tell it to install updates it found for that nvidia graphics card/driver and everthing was FIXED!! Remember it will not install them automatically with auto updates as they are optional extras... retarded? yes i know.

yup i had the same problem on my lcd display. The default res of my display is 1440x900 but somehow any res with a aspect ratio of 16:9 or 16:10 disappeared and i was stuck at 1024x768 till driver version 296.10.

What was the error message for the Installation failure??
