Default video driver problems

Fresh install will not take nvidia 93.31 drivers.

OS XP SP2 x64
RAM corsair XMS DDR400 2gb
HDD Seagate 300gb sata2 16mb
SND card X-Fi soundblaster
CPU AMD x2 4200
motherboard A8N32-SLI
Video XFX 6800XT (x2)

I have been having this problem for a while now, at wits end trying to figure this out. I have installed, then installed the MB drivers first, then did a fresh install and then the video drivers first. Each time after the video drivers, when windows trys to come back up it just resets the computer. I have gone as far to take out one of the video cards to see if that would help also.

the drivers are obviously having some conflict with some peace of hardware in your computer i would suggest just going back to the old drivers if its causing that much issue.

you can also format and see if that works but thats a major waste of time just for some drivers

I have tried just taking out one video card, but have not tried the otherone as the primary. I will try that when I get home.

I reinstalled this morning though, used all the default drivers that came one CD with the mainboard/sound card, and still had the reboot.
