    Hi All,

    I have been trying for about a month to install an nvidia driver to be able to fully experience windows 7, but I have tried everything and cant seem to get it to work out. I know this issue has been tossed around a lot (trust me, Ive read as many threads as I could find) but it wold be great if someone could help me troubleshoot as I am out of ideas.

    Here's what Ive got:

    Intel Core 2 Duo 2 GHz
    4 GB RAM
    Nvidia GeForce 8600M GS
    HP Pavilion dv9000

    I have tried tons of drivers from laptopvideo2go, some give me a BSOD around nvlddmkm.sys, some just end up giving a blank screen after bootup.

    In my device manager it says VGA controller, not my video card. In everest it recognizes my video card. Initially when I install a driver my video card will show in device manager befor I reboot, but of course once I reboot it gives BSOD or black screen.

    Anyone have any ideas what I could do to get around this? I would love to have a driver installed and be able to use aero. I have tried the newest drivers and older drivers. Some I get the "you do not have the appropriate drivers installed" bit. Or some say I have an incorrect card or something.
