Vista to 7 upgrade

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 http://www.nvlddmkm.com/ to no avail.

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