So ever since I installed Windows Vista on my computer I had been having this apparently common nVidia driver problem. Recently, I installed the most recent nVidia graphics drivers and have not had the problem since. My computer has been running perfectly, and not crashing, freezing or erroring out as it had previously with the nvlddmkm driver.
Here is a link to the most recent and up-to-date version of the nVidia driver set: Windows Vista 32-bit nVidia driver
ForceWare Release 100
Release Date: February 20, 2007
Apparently this driver has been out since late February, but I noticed that I’m still getting a large amount of traffic due to this problem, so I hope this updated driver works for all of you as it has for me – but don’t stop reading my blog just because I solved your problem! Add me to your RSS reader and come back soon!
If you’re still having problems after installing this version, check out the nvlddmkm resource site at All of Your Questions Answered.
