Can you post a new photo of Device manager. Also post a second photo, but this time, click on the plus sign (+) of System devices to expand that list item so I can see the contents. You will have to adjust the window size to show the contents.

Well, you are missing the Chipset driver as System devices only shows Standard PCI bus controllers.
I'm not certain why you're unable to install the correct Nvidia PCI driver. It might be SP3, or something else... I don't know.
Since you just recently reinstalled, it might be a good idea to wipe the machine and reinstall again. I know it's a hassle, but it might be worth it rather than spending more time troubleshooting this. Installing Windows and drivers should not be this difficult.
Directly after installing Windows (SP2 only!), the very first driver you need to install is the Chipset driver. After that, the video driver, then the sound driver. This is the sequence the drivers need to be installed. Don't deviate. If the Chipset driver doesn't install, or you still have a problem with it, don't start installing other drivers. You need to resolve the chipset driver issue first. If the chipset driver installs fine, then you can continue on.
After you install all your drivers, check to make sure Device manager is clean of yellow or red marks. If it's not, then you need to fix them before installing SP3.
If Device manager is clean, then you can install SP3, but first go HERE and download ERUNT. Be sure to read THIS page. Run ERUNT and have it create a registry backup. After that, create a Windows System Restore point, and then you can install SP3.
If something messes up with SP3, Restore your computer with System Restore, restart the machine, then restore the ERUNT registry backup and restart your machine. This will bring you be back to before you tried to install SP3.
If you need help with any of the above, let me know.

Hopefully when you reinstall, you won't have problems. Good luck and let me know how it goes.
