    Windows 8 not working with GTX 560 Ti


    Hello,
    I just installed Windows 8 Pro through the upgrade download. I kept getting BSOD when windows 8 would boot for the first time and it kept sending me back to windows 7 pro. I kept getting some system service exception error, which i found out was the graphics (Nvidia GTX 560 Ti) so i took it out and the install went just fine. Once windows 8 was installed i shutdown, out in the graphics card, booted and got the same error. I setup the minidump thing and it keeps telling the error is being caused by nvlddmkm.sys which is a Nvidia driver. I am able to boot with the card in sometimes but it runs on some simple VGA driver even though i have it connected through DVI, so once i got it in and booted i installed the latest drivers for windows 8, no luck. Then i installed an even newer one that was a beta and still no luck, then i tried installing the driver from windows 8 release preview that said it supported some new WDDM technology and that failed too! For now i am running of the integrated intel hd 3000 graphics. Please help! i'll try to upload the minidumps.

    Specs:
    Intel core i7 2600k
    nvidia gtx 560 ti
    8gb of 1333mhz microcenter ram
    asus p8z68-v mobo
    cooler master 600w psu
    hitachi hard drive 500gb

    (P.s. i've run memtest without any probs so i don't think it is my ram)

    Latest Nvidia drivers installed?

    Check in the BIOS settings regarding GPU????

    I installed the latest drivers but got the same error. Right now I have my BIOS set to use the integrated graphics in my CPU as the display, and I get no bsod but if I use the card as the primary output it bsods. Besides that I have all the same settings I had before I upgraded to Windows 8. I have been playing around with the settings as well but nothing worked.
