I have an Nvidia 8600M GS video card in my laptop. I am very aware of the issues that this card has, but don't believe what I am experiencing is that problem. I installed Win7 - 32 bit (Ver 6.1.7600 build 7600) on my laptop, brand new install on a brand new HD. The install goes just fine, and Windows installs a generic video driver. I found the appropriate driver to install for the Nvidia card, dl'd it and installed and rebooted the computer. After the Win7 splash screen, the screen goes black, and I get absolutely nothing, then it reboots itself, and goes into "there was a problem with startup". I launch startup repair and let it run, it says it can't find anything, and still will not boot. I can get the computer to come back up, if I start with the last known good configuration, which loads the generic VGA driver again. I have downloaded and installed every driver I can find for this model, and I get the same result every time. Does anyone out there have any ideas for me?? The generic driver just won't let me do anything with this video card, and I can't run much of anything with it that has actual graphics. My Windows base score comes in at a 1 because of the graphics, when it used to be a 5.9. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
