I have GeForce Ti4200 card.
If I use my card without any driver it works fine, I mean, it's stable and everything is displayed properly, but of course lack of drivers makes it slow and unable to perform some tasks.
So I install the nVidia drivers and then the system goes crazy.
Very often the screen goes blank for just 1 second, then comes back to normal, and also it hangs up very often so I even can't bring Task Manager - I just have to reboot it. If I play a movie (divX) it just stops after few seconds, so I have to close Media Player. The newer the driver is the worse the performance is. If I install the newest one 71.89, the systems just hangs after i start it, so I just have to reboot in safe mode and roll back the driver. And if I uninstall the driver I don't have any of these problems.
Does anyone know what it is?
Can anyone help me please???

you have to install the right drivers for the right card. you are probably installing drivers for a different model card.

I had some issues with nvidia drivers. I found some good advice in another forum. Download the current driver for your card. Then download driver cleaner at http://www.drivercleaner.net/ Then remove the present driver in ad/remove programs. Boot into safe mode. Run driver cleaner TWICE and delete all that it finds. Then re-boot and install the current driver. This solved my problem. Hope is solves yours.
