    Recently my video card died, and so my system went kaput. Originally I had thought it might be a driver problem so I uninstalled all Nvidia drivers from my system - including by accident my motherboard chipset drivers (I have an Asus A8N-SLI).

    Now when I try to boot with a new video card swapped in I get an endless reboot cycle. I disabled automatic rebooting and I got a blue screen with STOP 0x0000007B. I do have a clean installation of windows on another partition that I keep around for troubleshooting, and that works fine.

    Is there any way to save my current installation short of a complete reinstall?

    can you boot into safe mode ?
    tap F8 as it boots

    on the stop screen is there a filename

    if you get into safe mode - you maybe able to re-install thedrivers
