I recently upgraded to windows 7 from vista to try and solve an issue I have with my video drivers
crashing whenever i do something graphically intensive.
I opened up a thread on the vista forums here: Video Drivers Crashing - Vista Forums
But it doesn't seem that anyone can help me. I tried all of the basic troubleshooting steps, and have updated all the drivers on my system.
Repost from link:
The problem I am having is that I upgraded my graphics card recently to an Nvidia 430GT. I have done numerous checks (RAM, CPU, power supply, updated every driver
on my system, etc.), and have had the graphics card replaced, but am still receiving the same issue. When I load up video games I will receive the message "Driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has recovered" at random intervals.Sometimes my system will completely freeze because the drivers won't recover. I contacted nvidia about the drivers and they had me try out a few driver versions (which i had already done), before telling me to get the graphics card replaced . Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing this? It really seems to be an issue between vista and the graphics card drivers, but i don't know how i would resolve that.
