Hello,

I am trying to install the nvidia drivers (Vista 64). Every time I do this,
I get the blue screen of death and I am forced to go into repair mode. An
help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Are you installing from a disc or from a download of drivers from the Nvidia website? What is your GPU model number?

First, make sure you are installing the correct driver. Second, download
the driver and install from disk. Third, check the event log and see why
you are bluescreening.
