83.90 driver caused MAJOR PROBLEM ! ?

I installed 83.90 beta driver Tuesday night. Wanted to wait a while before
putting it on my new 7800GS CO card. But during the installation process the
screen went black. And would not come back on. I thought it fried the video
card at first. So I put in my back up video card. And there is still no DVI
output from the computer now. I have the 7800GS back in and running with a
analog cable with no problems. but there is no DVI input into the LCD
screen. I even tried my other Viewsonic LCD screen, with the same results...

If I remember correctly it did display (LCD) before the 83.90 black screen
problem. (The screen went black during the installation of the 83.90 driver.
And the only way I could see anything was to put on a analog cable)

Any ideas what could of caused me no longer having any DVI output on my
computer since I installed the 83.90 drivers ?

I have since backed up to 83.40 and still have no DVI output. I even put in
a backup video card and I keep on hand, and still no DVI output.

The card has analog output. So should I even be concerned that it has no DVI
output. Is there really any thing that would make it better to have the DVI
output ?

Has anybody else run into this problem yet ?
I also noticed that now the setting show my Viewsonic VP930B LCD screen as a
CRT screen.
And the serial number is suppose to be PQ8055200056 not 3641602321 ?

Looks like so far I am the only one providing solutions to my problem :(

I did a search in my regedit and found numerous listing of Viewsonic. So I
made a backup copy, just in case. And searched all the Viewsonic entries.
Deleted them and reinstalled the driver again. Now I only show the default
plug & play and one VP930b monitor. The DVI still is not working and it
shows as a analog CRT in my video settings section and the wrong serial
number still..

Called Viewsonic, not much help at all !

Just ran SiSoftware Sandra and noticed that it has numerous monitors
listed. Below is a link to the screen save. maybe this is why my DVI
output on my computer is not working ? How do I eliminate all of those
fathom listings ?
