For the first time in a long time I've encountered a problem completly prohibiting me from actually using an nVidia driver. The driver installs fine and reboots into Windows fine after that. I don't know if it's me enabling SLI, importing profiles from nHancer, creating custom resolutions or what. When I reboot after doing all of that it will blue screen every single time before entering Windows. Very strange indeed. I hope the next driver set aren't like this one.

Scratch that. It was actually the Realtek Network Adapter driver update on the Microsoft site that was causing it. I had it installed at the same time I installed these. Rolled the Network Adapter driver back and all is well. It's odd that it caused nvlddmkm blue screens on boot with SLI. Only with SLI enabled.
