A few days ago I went to turn on my PC and after the Windows boot screen, my display went black (No signal). Tried to upgrade drivers but that didn't fix it (was able to boot into safe mode to get drivers, but after the install safe mode was broken too.)
So I wiped my hard drive and re-installed Windows 7. I can get to my desktop with the standard VGA driver, but any Nvidia driver I install brings me back to a black screen after the reboot. Ideas?

Have you tried booting with the onboard video (removing the GTX 460)? That could be a symptom of a bad card...
On-board video works, it's only when I install Nvidia drivers for my 460 that it doesn't boot.
