Windows 7: Artifacts/Driver stopped responding errors with 8800GTX

One last thing to try is to reset the cards defaults to see if any changes were made by Anchorage.

With your card installed with the latest drivers go to the NV control panel and you'll see the "restore defaults" (hard to spot) in the upper right corner of the main part of the nvidia control panel window.
