I posted a couple of days ago about my OS not being recognised and the advice I received was to update my Graphic card drivers. Unfortunately I now seem to have a further problem.
I have: Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit Intel(R)Core(TM) 2 Duo CPU [email protected] GHz 2.00 GB RAM NVIDIA GeForce8800 GT
Right step by step here is what I have done.
1 Uninstalled my current drivers and rebooted. 2 Went to NVIDIA site and ascertained that I should download 196.21. Did this saving download. 3 I then noticed that Windows Update had automatically installed graphics drivers. 4 I ran and installed the 196.21 drivers and rebooted but then had all sorts of problems. Crashes due to nvldmmkms.sys failing and then recovering, and then finally BSOD. 5 Thinking this might be a conflict between the Update installation and 196.21 I turned off automatic updates, booted into Safe Mode and uninstalled the drivers. I used Driver Sweeper to clean out all residuals and rebooted. 6 Lo and behold Windows Update automatically installed new drivers despite automatic updates being turned off. 7 Carrying on regardless I reinstalled 196.21 with same results as in (4).
