new nvidia driver casies clsoe down problem

  bemuzed 21:16 01 Jun 2005

I got Sims2 for my daughter but it would not work. After reading a few threads about SIMs2 I upgraded the graphics driver off the nvidea site. Now Sims2 seems to work OK but whenever I switch the PC off (whether after using SIMs2 or not) it goes part way through the switch off procedure then freeses with vertical coloured lines.
I am running windows Me and the card is nvidea GeForce2 MX/MX 400

new nvidia driver causes close down problem.

Any suggestions on what is going wrong (not just my spelling)?
