Attempting to install drivers of version 10.0 and beyond result in one of two outcomes: as the drivers are being updated and the screen goes black, it *stays* black and a blinking text cursor appears in the upper left corner, almost DOS-style; or the update seems to go smoothly, but upon restart the computer will not get past the Windows 7 logo, it just freezes forever.I've tried flashing my motherboard BIOS to the latest edition, resintalled my OS twice, and even flashed the video card's BIOS to the ASUS equivalent. The second issue is a more common one, ironically usually fixed by updating drivers: I occasionally get "soft crashes" wherein a 3D game (TF2, in my case) will lock up, the screen will fill with a random solid color, then the screen will go black and after about 15-20 seconds the game will resume as normal.

Any help or insight you can provide me would be greatly appreciated, as I'd rather not have to deal with the RMA process and be stuck without a video card for an extended period of time. The "soft crashes" you are describing are probably VPU recovery kicking in, which means your card is unstable.
