Hey Gang!

As the title says, My Brand New home built pc is stuck in a boot loop after I install any non-Windows drivers. Happens on both Windows 8 and Windows 7 and it doesn't matter what driver it is. it asks to restart the pc as usual and poof! instant boot loop! only way to get out of it it to do a system repair from and external drive/iso back to default settings. Ive double checked all psu connections and they're fine also tried to install windows with the onboard video and no change. system specs as follows:

CPU: AMD FX-6130 (six core) @ 3.3GHz, no overclock added
Video: Zotac Geforce GTS 450
Mobo: MSI 760GM-P23FX bios settings are stock with the exception of turning off the Serial I/O port.
PSU: Rocketfish 700Watts

What I've tried: intalled both WIN 7 & 8, no difference. Tried to run without video card and just install LAN/audio drivers from MSI, no difference. as soon as I install ANY driver other than window's default ones system will not boot! HELP!!!!!! :fou:
