if these are the drivers you installed eVGA GeForce 7900GT
what will happen is your going to asked to uninstall them for the new drivers which will be replaced by updated version or they will overwrite write your drivers with an updated version

after the update if you continue to get a blue screen or your computer continues to freeze ill ask a moderator to to look more into your problem in the mean time you need to update your installments it makes it easier for the moderators

I cant install these drivers.
I used the alternate .inf file they said to use if that didn't work, but it still didn't work.
I also tried the method that they mentioned in the link you posted, but no luck there either.
So what now?

I did windows update and got the latest one.
Java automatically downloaded an update earlier today.
And chkdsk /f /r came up clean.
Although the first time I tried it I got a BSOD.

When those drivers you gave me wouldnt install I never reinstalled the previous ones. And when I went to bed I left the computer on just to see if it would BSOD. But it hasn't and is still on. I'm not an expert but does this mean that the problem is my video card drivers?

whenever i see a stop error i try looking it up here
http://www.aumha.org/win5/kbestop.php

now i dont know why you cant install those drivers
it might have something to do with your system you built

but im going to see if kieth is available
you may have to run a memtest
memtest will run a complete diagnostics on your system and gives more information

it certainly looks like video drivers

is there a way you could get the name of actual of video card should have some sort of
number on the card its self

Well right now without any drivers I'm at 1024x768 and the only resolution change I can make is to 800x600 which does work.

My video card can be found at Newegg.com I have verified the model number actually on the card so don't worry.

at this site Newegg.com you said your video card driver is there then redownload it

it should have an updated version for your drivers

you may have to do this with all your drivers

locate the exact driver and the home site for each card or driver and download updated versions

if you can update your mobo by all means do so

Its taking so long because I had some trouble figuring out the current versions of the drivers I'm using right now. Most of them are up to date already.
