I can boot up to safe mode, and after a couple days of toying around and extensive googling I found out that if I disable or uninstall my video card in device manager I can boot up the computer (not safe mode). The problem is when windows (7 by the way) detects it and installs it (or I install the driver myself that I downloaded off the nvidia site) the next time I reboot, I get the original problem again.
I'm using an LG flatron w2453v monitor and my pc is custom built with a gigabyte motherboard, intel core 2 duo E8400 processor 4 GB of ram and a geforce 9600gt video card if that helps.
Any help at all would really be appreciated! I would hate to have to buy a new video card, they're a bit expensive and I don't have the money right now. Thanks for taking the time to read.
