So I thought that I had solved the problem, my computer had been running without a glitch for the past month and a half to two months – ever since I installed the most recent Nvidia display driver set as posted in this article: nVidia nvlddmkm Vista Driver Fix – Here is the Solution I thought I was in the clear, but after installing the Windows Updates detailed below, my system went into an absolute panic.
When it restarted after the updates, I had the same problem that I had before – the login screen had “snowflakes” all over it, then once I logged in, the screen would repeatedly freeze, then go black, freeze then go black, etc. I ended up starting up in safe mode and reinstalling the Nvidia drivers, but that did not work. I was finally able to resolve the problem by using System Restore. I just restored my computer to yesterdays state and since then, it has been fine. Now I just need to figure out which of the updates listed below is the one that is causing the problems! Any help would be appreciated. 😉
- Security Update for Windows Vista (KB930178)
- Update for Windows Mail Junk E-Mail Filter [April 2007] (KB905866)
- Update for Windows Vista (KB931099)
- Update for Outlook 2003 Junk Email Filter (KB932330)
