I am having issues installing the video drivers for the system below:

Motherboard: Alienware® Approved NVIDIA® nForce® 790i Ultra SLI™ Motherboard

After installing different versions of the drivers, device manager shows a little yellow icon with ! and reads microsoft has supended this driver(code43). I guess it is running on generic driver right know. One gpu posts all the way through , I remove and test the second gpu, which gets stuck at windows loading screen forever. Please help!

You need to try the 9800 that does not work in another computer, if one works in your system, the second does not, points to a bad video card. Trying the suspect card in a second system can confirm or deny that.
