Hello,
I downloaded latest nvidia drivers(195.62), my graphic card is GeForce 9650m GT, and after installation and reboot vista crashes after 15-30 sec (screen freeze, then black screen and automatic reboot), so i had to run vista in safe mode and change back drivers to previous. Any way to solve this problem?

Hello Shini,
If it is a problem with the driver design, then no, theres nothing you can do, except wait for a new one.
You could try and re-install the driver, use a driver cleaner before you install the new driver.
Start the PC in safe mode, use the cleaner and re-install the driver.
Give this a try and post your results, good luck.

Ok, here is what I did:
1. Run PC in safe mode, uninstall graphic card and remove drivers.
2. Reboot system(safe mode again)
3. Use cleaner
4. Install new driver
5. Reboot PC with normal mode

So far (after almost hour) my vista is working with no crash, before it crashed after 15 sec, so I think that the problem is solved.

stoneys-nutz - thanks a lot mate! I really needed latest driver for my card, come to my place, i will shout you a beer! :D
