Problem starting OS with nVidia Driver

Last response: in Graphics & Displays

So I build a desktop from scratch

MOBO: ASUS p8p67-m pro
GPU: EVGA 560Ti (Crysis Edition)
CPU: i5 2500k
MEM: RipJaws DDR3 1333 9-9-9-24

And it's all working fine until I install the nVIDIA video card drivers, then when I restart, it gets stuck at the login screen, all you see is the desktop background and opening up task manager makes the screen black out.

Does anyone know how to solve this?
Does anyone have the same mobo and gpu or a similiar gpu that has it working? worse case scenario i'll get a new video card or mobo, it would help to give a recommendation.

You don't mention the OS, so, can't post details on how to... BUT, you need to restart your system in "Save Mode" usually hold down F8 during re-boot:

Then, remove the NVidia drivers. Reboot. Just let Win7 find and install the correct video drivers for you.

Run for a few days to see how things go.....

A second thought, just in case, what brand, model, and size power supply to you have? (if you have NO video driver, card won't draw much power. Once you install driver, might be needing more power than you have and freezing...)
