You should be able to find something nVidia in there and move it out so it doesn't reinstall. So, start the PC, let it install whatever it wants, move a folder starting with nv_disp out to desktop level and nothing else, don't delete it or rename, just move.

OK, so I "solved" the problem but the solution doesn't make any sense either. I used a DVI to HDMI adapter to connect to the DVI out on the 970 to the HDMI in on the monitor (which doesn't have a DVI in), and used the HDMI out on the 970 to connect to the TV, hoping maybe if the computer was recognizing the second monitor I could manage to adjust the resolution if that was the problem. Well, I didn't need to - everything worked perfectly as soon as the connection to the TV was made! Why the hell the HDMI connection to the TV works just fine when there's a second monitor connected to the DVI out and not when there's just the TV connected alone, I have no idea. So, so strange.
