Blue screen ntdll.dll error on startup after installing NVIDIA drivers
I've had this blue screen error come up on the startup of my new Windows 7 64-bit install:
STOP: C0000221 Unknown Hard Error \SystemRoot\System32\ntdll.dll
Things I've done since installing Windows: Install Firefox Install Chrome Install GeForce 290.36 (beta) driver Crash System Restore Install Steam Crash Boot successfully after taking a RAM stick out - seems to have removed steam.exe and GeForce driver Test both sticks in both slots on their own - successfully boot each time Install GeForce 285.62 Driver Crash
I've been looking around and haven't been able to find any solid leads on what's going wrong.
Here's my (basic) system specs:
AMD Phenom II X2 3.2GHz EVGA GeForce GT 520 1GB Biostar A880GU3 Micro ATX Motherboard 2x2GB Corsair DDR3 1333 Model VS2GB1333D3 Western Digital Caviar Blue 320GB HEC Mini Tower w 585W Power Supply
Thanks for any help, Paul

Go into safe mode and remove the nvidia driver. Then boot back into windows and install a new driver (not the 285.62 version) for your video card.
