    BSOD on nVidia Video Driver Update


    Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit (SP2)
    HP Pavilion tx1220us Tablet PC (2 years old now)
    nVidia GeForce Go 6150

    So this all started a year ago, after a video driver update from Windows Update. Since then, whenever Vista enters/exits a full-screen operation, it shifts out of Aero (resulting in a black screen for 5 seconds, most noticeable with calling UAC).
    I've been trying to rollback or get a better update for the driver ever since (especially because Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor says the driver needs to be updated), but have had no success.
    A couple months ago I tried installing a video driver with a modded INF. As a result, problem still not fixed, and screen orientation functionality disabled.
    Since then, trying to update the video driver (from HP, HP Recovery, and Windows Update) results in a BSOD half-way through (stop 0x7F,(0x0,0x0,0x0,0x0)). Then Windows fails to start, and executes Recovery Manager, which repairs and succeeds.
    Obviously, if I didn't try to update the driver this wouldn't happen, but I'd like this to be somewhat resolved when 7 comes. Does anyone have any ideas that could help?

    do you happen to have some of the dump files from the BSOD's? they are usually located in c:\windows\minidump, can you zip them (*.dmp) and upload it to us using the attachment icon (its shaped like a paperclip) in the reply form

    win 7 is already out and does have a better handle on drivers, especially in 32bit.

    thanks

    Sure. Here's the most recent one.
    I guess I'd really just like to know if this is something to worry about or take care of before upgrading to 7.

    Stun

    this one was caused by your nvidia driver nvlddmkm.sys. I also noticed several older drivers 2 were from 2005, several from 2006, and 2007. those should be updated. As soon as I find out what they are for I will PM you with them

    I found it interesting that since you are running 32bit and SP2 I wondered why these older drivers are still there

    lemur: yup, have that one.
    theog: i've tried looking there, but it redirects to hp's driver.
    zigzag: yeah, nvlddmkm.sys has given me problems before, sometimes stopping/recovering while running vista (happens rarely though). it's also flagged under hindering vista from entering (+4.1 sec) and resuming from (+2.1 sec) sleep mode.

    Did you try the GeForce Series Video Driver instead of the Go 6150?
