I've tried to install the new 169.09 Vista 64Bit drivers, but it seems to have a problem with my system.
The drivers install fine and i can log on fine, but after a minute or two the monitor will go onto standby and i can't do anything to recover it. All I can do is hold in the power switch to turn it off.
Once i restart the pc, as soon as the pc begins to display the vista log on screen, it will just go back into standby, and i have to switch it off at the power switch again.
I uninstalled the 169.09, in safe mode, and i've reverted back to the 169.04 drivers as they don't seem to have this problem.

System Specs:
Gigabyte 965P DS3 Revision 3.3
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz
XFX Nvidia GeForce 8800GTS 640MB
Monitor is LG Flatron M2343A

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would try those drivers but they have not been optimised for crysis or hellgate london.

I use the driver and have no issues. Your system crashes with the driver you have. Optomised for Crysis or hellgate makes little difference if your system is bluescreened when you play. 'Ya think?
