Windows 7: Thought BSODs had been done in, but NO!

Small Question.
Do you still have Advanced System Care off of your system or did you reinstall it?

Thanks for link! Clean install of Nvidia's 314.07 driver set completed. A question: although the drivers are those found by Nvidia's probe, my adapter does not support some items in 314.07. The unsupported items are:
3D Vision ,Physx.

Best diable or completely remove, or leave be?

The onw that has earlier dated contents has fewer folders than the later, but all the earlier dated folder's contemts are in the later. Why that is I don't understand, but might it be a possible cause of some of my troubles?
I'll have a friend look in, there is a specific way to uninstall nVIDIA drivers. DriverSweeper doesn't do the whole job.

What is the latest driver from Dell? Some manufacturers customize their video drivers for their machines, and the ones from Nvidia will not work. I was told that Dell was one of those. Download the latest driver to your desktop. To clean the drivers, look in C:/Nvidia. There should be a folder there called display drivers. Inside that folder you will find folders for all drivers you have installed, they will be named by their number such as 296.11, 304.23 and such. Delete those folders but do not delete the display drivers folder. Open Control panel and find Nvidia files. If you have an Nvidia chipset driver do not delete that. Delete all the NVidia 3D, PhysX, Nvidia update And this is important, delete the Nvidia display driver last. When you delete the Nvidia display driver you will be prompted to restart your computer, do so. When you have restarted install the Driver you downloaded from Dell. If during the install you have the option, select custom install, make sure the 'clean install' box is checked. You can select which drivers you want installed except the display driver by using the check boxes. Only install the display driver and the PhysX driver (if your system will use it) Do not install any of the other drivers unless you especially need them. If you do not have the option of custom install, it's OK. When completed you should have a clean install.

That is part of past drivers, don't worry about the registry at all.

As to whether using Dell's or NVidia's site to up date drivers, I have seen opinion that is opposite to essenbe's. That is even when Dell has chosen with service tag details. According to Dell the appropriate driver is 191.33 plus from some date in 2010, whilst Nvidia has 314.07. It's all very confusing!

That is my fault I am by no means a hardware expert, I deal mainly with driver problems and beyond actually building a PC or replacing a part I am not much use in that department.

What is your thought about Mac OS X and Mac Hardwrae
In my views Apple Pros 1. No viruses 2. Stable 3. Pretty Cases 4. No activation or serial numbers to deal with Apple Cons 1. Inconsistent. (Does not really crash or freeze, but I fear there is a ghost in the machine)
