Default Blue Screen of Death caused by installing NVIDIA Driver

Hello to everyone

My Operating System Crashes [Blue Screen of Death] after the Windows Intro Splash screen.

My Laptop Specs:
Model: Asus A8js
Video Card: NVIDIA 7700 GeForce Go 512mb
Processor: Intel Core2 Duo T7400
RAM: 2gb

Operating System: Windows XP/ Windows 7

I've recently installed my Operating System from Windows XP SP2 to Windows 7.

At first run everything seemed to be working well. But, after installing the NVIDIA driver downloaded straight from the NVIDIA website [179.48_notebook_vista32 *which was directed to me after choosing NVIDIA 7700 GeForce Go on the selection*] the computer crashes.

This is the Blue Screen of Death that happens right after the Windows 7 Splash Screen [Intro]

I also tried to reinstall back to Windows XP hoping for the problem would not be there.
But, I've discovered there are abnormal blue lines on the splash screen.

Blue Screen of death does not occur rather it displays blank screen.

Whenever I restart this is the view on the boot-up screen:

I've deduced that:
Crashing/ Blue Screen of Death only occurs when I install the NVIDIA Driver.
But, you can still be able to navigate in windows without any problem not until you install the NVIDIA driver.

The interface in the operating system is normal and functions well. But, available resolutions is only in 1024x768 [NVIDIA Driver not yet installed][Display Adaptor: Strandard VGA Display Adaptor] *Installing the driver would crash the system upon restarting*.
There are no abnormalities such as "BLUE LINES" in the operating system/windows interface.
Everything functions well without the NVIDIA driver. But, it is much a dismay that you can only run up to only 1024x768.

What I've Tried so far:
I've tried different drivers from different websites for the NVIDIA 7700 including the NVIDIA website
I've also used windows update to install for the driver.
I've also installed the driver provided on the CD along with my laptop.
I've also installed only the driver [without the other configurations by directly updating the driver via device manager]
I've also tried to uninstall the "Standard VGA Display Driver" which was installed as default and replace it with the NVIDIA Driver.
I've also tried running SAFE MODE after the system crashes and it runs well, because the driver for video card doesn't function.
I've reset the BIOS to manufacturer's configuration.
I've checked my HDD for System Errors.
I've used the Memory Diagnostic Tool resulted without errors.

Reformat Count: More than "8" Times....and counting...

Your help is greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much.
