Whenever I try to install the newest video drivers from Nvidia (182.50) my computer will not detect the driver at all. There is no nvidia control panel or anything, almost as if I had never installed drivers. When I install previous drivers it runs normal. Only when I try to install the newest driver it borks on me. Here's what I have tried so far

downloading from the manufacturer
re-downloading from nvidia
removing old drivers first
reseating the card.
reformating the computer

Here are my current system specs
Mobo: P4M800PRO-M
CPU: Prescott P4 3.0 GHz
RAM 2048MB DDR1 400 GSkill ram x2
VGA: eVGA 7600GT AGP

Any and all help is appreciated :D

Do you use any real-time spyware monitors like Spybot S&D's Teatimer function, that monitors registry changes?
