windows vista...computer has been running perfect for years, no problems,
i installed a video card i had laying around NVidia GeForce 8800GT
computer goes passed bios and shows the microsoft logo with the bar going across, after that the screen goes black for 5 seconds then i get the BSOD everytime at the same exact point (pic attached)
i know the card is good it works in other computers,
i have booted in safe mode and the computer will run fine in safe mode, i have tried to run the NVidia driver software but it will not let me in safe mode....comes up with an error that says it can not be loaded in safe mode,
i have checked all bios settings and they are correct,
not sure where to go from here,
another note.....i will be upgrading this computer from vista to 7 in the next few days, but wanted to get this sorted out first.....should i just go ahead with a fresh install of 7 and hope it works out okay???
