i just updated the driver for my graphic card nvidia GeForce 8200M G with this driver 8.15.11.8585 ( http://www.nvidia.com/object/geforce_noteb...85.85_whql.html ) replacing the hp driver ( http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwar...product=3795258
).

and now everything seems to stream better and the gaming experience has improved, but my laptop won't restart when i click on the start menu and restart option.

while the laptop doesn't completely shut down, it just stay frozen with a blank screen perpetually, so i have to manually shut it down by pressing the button and starting it over again.

i know that it's the nvidia driver because when i go back to the oem driver from hp, it works fine again.

does anybody know what i can do because i'd rather have the nvidia driver from their site, as it makes everything stream better, but not being able to restart it is driving me crazy.

i have a hp g60-120us model running vista home premium 32.

i also use a samsung hdtv as my external monitor, but i don't think this makes a difference because even without the hdtv hooked up, it won't restart.

Try this program and see if it'll shut your system down:

Agatasoft Shutdown Pro

I haven't used this program in awhile but I remember it worked pretty well. This is just a shot in the dark of course, but hey, if it works......
What's more irrational--a guy who believes in a God he cannot see or a guy who is offended by a God he doesn't believe in?

i didn't use the Agatasoft Shutdown Pro because it cost money, but i did try other shutdown programs to no avail.

in searching the nvidia forums, i've found out that this driver has been problematic for numerous other people with it's own topic listing all the endless problems.
