Set RAm clocks to moderate 1066/1333 speeds/CAS timings if necessary...

delete partition/repartition/reformat, reintall OS, then:

CHipset drivers
video drivers
Nvidia overclocking utility to set clocks to standard 460 reference speeds for testing....

Do you have another PCI-e video card you can borrow if necessary to test if yours might be faulty?

Might need to make sure no aps are trying to bounce you back to WIndows, turn off all AV, MSgr, Norton, anything that might try to bounce you back to desktop...

The screen getting scrambled is indicative of GPU/mem issues, try the Nvidia OC utilities to monitor temps, and reduce gpu/mem clocks until you figure out what is going on....
