Only able to boot-up safe mode.

Specs: Windows Vista, e6420/2GB
There has been a problem with my PC that is preventing me to boot normally; only in safe mode. I found out that once I uninstalled and disabled the Nvidia driver (Most recent one) for my 8800GTS it will boot up with no crashes. Currently Windows boots up with hiccups when Im using the onboard/VGA adapter, only problem remains is the annoying streaks of blue strips on screen. And I reformatted, so basically theres nothing in my PC.

Vista 32bit
Stock E6420
2GB DDR2 800
8800GTS 320MB

I don't your onboard video card enabled whileyou are using the 8800GTS? That could be the reason for your issues if so.

Also, did you fully uninstall your drivers/software for the onboard card?

I uninstalled the drivers for the 8800GTS and currently using the generic VGA Adapter instead, then the PC will boot up normally. But, if I tried to install/enable the 8800 drivers I can only boot up in safe mode.

So basically if I enable the 8800GTS my PC will continue rebooting after the Vista boot-screen.Right now I have only the Standard Video Adapter enabled.
