My computer has all of a sudden went funky. I have no clue as to why
either. I keep getting the BSOD everytime I try to reinstall the
display driver. I just reformated and the screen is all funky looking
chopped up really low resolution and lowest color quality. Any
answers are greatly appreciated, again. :thumbsup:

write down the error code next time you blue screen and post it back. You need to uninstall the old drivers before installing the new ones. If you still blue screen after doing that then drop down a set, ie get the almost new drivers.

Thank you I will try that when I get home. Also, does it sound like a driver problem or the video card going out in my laptop? I really will be upset if its the video card. I haven't even had the laptop for a year.

All I'm going to say is that this is a load of crap on Nvidia's part. Let's hope there not as lame as to not repair it. Sounds like this is going to be a video card issue not so much a driver issue.
