Any help with this would be gratefully received.

did you remove m/s drivers and install nvid in safe mode? the reason i ask is i had a similar problem and occasional video hardware errors, after i first put nvid driver on.
download nvid to desktop, reboot into safe mode unistall 7600gt from driver manager, reboot into safe mode install nvid driver reboot.
thats what i did and it improved 3d benchmark from the microsoft vista set up, hope this helps
my set up at time
64 5200 x2

i have a geforce 6200 and it installed the drivers via windows update. works fine. check the welcome centre. should have something like this but with 7600 instead of 6200
