Hi guys,

As of late I've been thinking about upgrading to windows 7, simply because I've encoutered the dreaded "nvlddmkm driver has stopped responding" message, which leads to a lot of crashes and a lot of f'ing and blinding!!! Correct me if I'm wrong, but what I've read about it is, it's a vista only related issue. My question is, has anyone else experienced this error? And if so would I be right in thinking that installing windows 7 would eliminate this problem? And also have a less glitchy experience with windows?

I've tried so many fixes without luck, I even read that running 1 x DIMM would solve it, which it didn't.. :pfff: 

Please tell me what I want to hear :D

I have updated the drivers, and still get the error. It also happens with ATI cards. ATI users get "atikmdag". I've tried most of the possible fixes on this website to no avail.

But good to know that it's vista related :D
