GTX 460 SE Driver issues

Hello,
I've been using my GTX460SE for almost a year without any issues, but while playing JustCause2 the computer crashed, and wouldn't boot back up unless into safe mode. After much googling I determined that there was a driver conflict with my card and my motherboard.
I found this page which claimed to have a solution:
http://www.evga.com/support/faq/afmmain.aspx?faqid=5921...
In short it didn't work.
So after many tries, I stopped trying for a week. When I started back up, the computer miraculously started up, dual screens and all, the only Nvidia software I had installed was the graphics driver and physx. However the drivers kept crashing and the computer crashed aswell, and I am now back to square one.

My spec:

Evga GeForce GTX 460 SE (Fermi)
BIOSTAR TA880GU3+ AM3 AMD 880G HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
OCZ Fatal1ty 550W
AMD Athlon II X4 2.9GHz
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)

So my question is, what do I do?
Get a new mobo or graphics card?
press on?
??????

We're you overclocking the card when it crashed?

Nope. When it originally crashed it was running on all highs but that's been done plenty of times before. And when it crashed recently, it was just on the desktop, not running anything.

After doing the final restart, during boot up, the windows logo freezes and the the screen goes dark. The monitors show no signal.

Boot to safe mode and uninstall the card from device manager

Have u tried reseating your card? Or removing it and booting safe mode and removing drivers again, getting it o boot normal from onboard video...


That's about all I'm good for at this point... Can revisit tomorrow... You can get it working

Over and out.
