Everything is up to date. Anything else I should do in the mean time?

What display driver is installed now? Did Windows Update deliver one?

If the freezing persists keep uninstalling Display driver until it defaults to Standard VGA and then run Windows Update after reboot.

If this is the Windows Update driver and freezing persists, import the latest driver only (no software package) from Nvidia. After install turn off all Nvidia in msconfig>Startup and >Services (after Hiding all MS Services).

Well, thanks a lot guys. It seems that the problem is fixed (fingers crossed). I haven't had a crash since I re-installed the recommended windows driver. It seems weird that I was having issues with the stable NVIDIA drivers, but I'll just use the ones that windows chooses from now on. If I don't have a freeze in a week then I'll mark the thread as solved.

Thanks again. I really appreciate it.

Glad to hear it.

Be sure to also run a Clean Boot for best performance as shown in Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

As you have time I'd go over your install closely following those steps so you can winnow out the errors, resolve any hidden issues, and learn much more about Win7.

The freezing is back. I uninstalled the driver and let windows install one, but it froze again.

With the most recent freeze, I waited for a little bit and my first monitor became a solid blue color and my second monitor became solid white.

Maybe you just have a bad card, can you swap with anything else to test ?

Wasn't sure where to put this, but this seemed the best place. Every so often, my system locks up solid to the point I have to manually power it off by holding the button down. It can be sitting there idle, or in the middle of a game, or most commonly, looking at the Playback/Recording settings...
