Default display driver BSOD

OK, just installed my 750i SLI FTW mobo, reinstalling all the drivers and such. Well when I install the 9800gx2 drivers and restart i almost instantly crash with the "attemp to reset the diplay driver failed" BSOD. I have to boot into safe mode and uninstall. Ive tried the 174.74 and the 175.12 drivers to no avail. Even tried a driver cleaner to see if that helped. No such luck. Was wondering if anyone has had this problem and if you could offer any advice.

First use Driver Cleaner Pro to remove old drivers.

Driver Cleaner Professional download from Guru3D.com

2nd do not use the Beta drivers. Use the released drivers. Beta drivers as known to be buggy. After you remove the drivers the 174 driver should work. Make sure you remove all old drivers though.

Ive used that same driver cleaner, tried repairing windows, uninstalled and reinstalled the 174.74 drivers. No luck yet. I can boot into windows but will crash soon with that error. safe mode works just fine and i can uninstall drivers. once thats done windows will boot up no problems what so ever.. thi is getting frustrating

So do it all from safe mode. There is nothing saying you can not load driver from safe mode.

There will be no issues installing the driver from safe mode. It will still work in normal mode. I have personally done this several times. There is no difference.

Other than that. Check the nvidia forums. They might know something that we dont.

Alright remove all the drivers. Run Driver Cleaner PRo:

Driver Cleaner Professional download from Guru3D.com

Get rid of all instances of the drivers. Then install the ones that work. Due that from within Safe Mode. Will require a restart after you run DCP.

aye... no luck yet... ive tried both sets of drivers for my gpu... the fresh install didnt work... used the disk cleaner... tried all different combos of my ram... if all else fails my have to check into rma'ing the new mobo... right now ive rolled back the chipset drivers and all seems to be good so far but i will keep you updated.

nope... there is no solution to this problem. I even went as far as reformatting with the 32 bit software to see what happened nothing... any more suggestions?
