Hi pengawin

Welcome to Geeks to Go, my name is Tony.


This problem is with your nvidia drivers, please go to:

http://www.nvidia.co...ers/drivers.asp


Select Graphics Driver
Then Select the Type of card you have
Then select the windows version you have, then click GO


Once you have downloaded the drivers and make sure you save it to your desktop. I would like you to virus scan it (to make sure that there is no virus's)

Disconnect from the internet, turn off any anti-virus scanners you have, UNINSTALL your old drivers by going to:

Start>Control Panel> Add\Remove Programs> Nvidia Drivers.

It will ask if you are sure, click YES


Once the drivers are removed, reboot your computer (it will ask you to do this any way)

Once you comptuer is on again turn off your Anti-Virus, and install** the driver that you downloaded from the site above. When this is finished, reboot your computer


**If you get a message box that comes up and says that its not been tested on XP, click on Continue. I get this message sometimes and it still works perfectly for me.

I came to the same conclusion about my Nvidia card so I tried to update it from windows and from Nvidia's site. (I have a GE force 5200) For some reason or another it always crashes my computer. I can get it back by running a safe boot and rolling back the driver. am I doing something wrong?
