    Yes, I'm using an SSD and else the exactly same setup (well technically a 6990m at the moment, but works also just as fine with the 6970m)

    Can SSD affect the computer that much, from previous experiences? I'm just wondering if it can have that large of an impact, obviously since that is a possibility.

    No, just black screen does not go ahead.

    Could be an issue of ambient temperatures or possibly hot motherboard power components? Maybe svl7's mobo has a good set of VRM chips that came out above spec.

    Just a random question; how can I uninstall Nvidia drivers on my computer given that I currently have the AMD drivers? When I tried from Add/Remove, Nvidia said that it couldn't detect an Nvidia card and therefore was not able to uninstall...

    If the uninstall from the control panel (Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features) doesn't work, try it from safe mode (if you haven't already).
