Hello =) 


First of all, thank you so much in advance for reading and any possible help or suggestions to my problem.


My PC has been running fine until last night. After a crash, I tried a normal restart. But as soon as the *loading windows* sign appears, everything turns and remains black. 

I can since, only run my PC in safety mode. I have figured out that when I remove the graphic card from the Devise Manager, I am able to boot up my PC normal again and run windows 7 again smoothly. 


The issue is, whenever I try to install NVIDIA drivers again, the PC wont boot up, the same issue will occur again with a  black screen&only safety mode. If I use an older driver, windows will boot up, but then my Graphic-software (I need for work) wont run and tells me to *update my NVIDIA* drivers. 


 I am a bit at the end with ideas of what it could be or how to bypass those issues. I find it odd that until last night, the latest NVIDIA drivers did run on my machine, till the crash happened. So perhaps it is something else?


Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thank you
