Hi, I'm Freddy, and I don't have all the answers. The trouble you're having
is a condition that can be caused by various sources. That's why it's hard
to identify and rectify, as you have found out. It's clear that something is
causing your system to malfunction, but just what is hard to say.
Are you using an nVidia graphics card? NVidia has been having issues making
their graphics card drivers fully compatible with Vista. This is well known.
You say you have updated drivers, but did you update the graphics card
drivers? Sometimes updating those helps, but sometimes not. That's just
another example of why this problem is so hard to diagnose.
You have a conflict of some sort. I have no idea of what it is. It could
be anything. Those eight files you have from running the sigverif.exe
utility are unsigned drivers. Unsigned drivers are those that haven't been
verified by Microsoft as running properly in Vista, but that doesn't mean
that they are the source of your condition. However, one or more of those
could be causing your problem. Again, it's hard to tell. Not all unsigned
drivers cause problems.
I don't have the solution, because of all the possible sources that could be
causing your problem. Most people simply keep working on the condition
until they find it or give up. One good approach is to participate in a user
group devoted to either nVidia or ATI cards, whichever card you have. You
can find such user groups on the Internet using google. A good ATI group is www.rage3d.com
. You should consider participating in such a group and
posting your problem there to see what happens.
I had a similar problem some time back. I eventually determined that my
condition was cause by my Intel processor upgrade from 2.4 GHz to 3.01 GHZ.
The manufacturer of my motherboard said that my motherboard supported up to
3.01 GHz, but it had issues when playing games, but only when playing games.
During games, I got the same error you are getting. I changed back to my old
2.4 GHZ processor, and the errors stopped. See what I mean about all the
possible sources for the condition you have? It can be hard to find.
One person solved his problem by doing the following:
"Right click on desktop > display settings > classic theme + Turning windows
defender off, all settings in windows defender to off!"
I copied that from the Internet. After doing that, his problem was solved.
Just another example of how different things can cause this problem!
I'm sorry to say that I can't solve your problem.
