Question Screen goes black on startup

Hey well I just installed windows vista ultimate 32bit version, and when I installed my video card drivers (8800GT) when it boots up after the loading screen the screen will go black and I can hear the welcome noises but no display. It works fine with no drivers installed and when they are installed; I boot into safe mode and it hangs on crc.disk.sys.

Are you installing your video card drivers from a CD or nVidia website?
