Unhappy nvidia driver issues (bsod)

my brand spanking new geforce 8600gt fata1ity came in the mail twenty minutes ago and after putting the card in i installed nvidias latest forceware drivers for windows xp x64, after rebooting it was all good until i clicked on the nvidia control panel, it flickered with a blue screen of death for about 1 second and then the pc restarted!! now i have tried the older drivers off the actual disk and it does the exact same thing, the only way i can get it too work is to not install any drivers at all.have reinstalled the differnt drivers five times now wtf is wrong!!! any help would be appreciated.

try decreasing the performance of the video card and see if that helps

Talking Re: nvidia driver issues (bsod)

i would have done what you suggested if i could have but it would do the same thing, but i managed to fix it by using microsofts restore thing and i restored it to a time before i had installed the raedon drivers for my last video card turns out windows doesnt like to delete the older ati drivers.
thx for your help anyway

it's a common problem, use driver cleaner pro to clean up the old drivers completely.
