At first I wasn't quite sure if it was just coincidence or not, but after testing over and over again, 4 times to be precise, I know for sure this is crazy but true..
At any point in time when windows vista (x64) is loaded up, from the logon screen and beyond, if I turn off my monitor, then turn it back on, I no longer see my screen, but a blue screen of death comes up, with a general 0x0000007e stop error. This is the craziest BSOD error I've come across ever lol...
Monitor is a 19" Gateway FPD1975w LCD Monitor, connected to a Nvidia 9500 GT adapter via DVI cable. I just recently installed the Vista SP2 Release yesterday, along with the latest Nvidia drivers released on June 18th. It's only after these installations did I notice I was getting a BSOD when i turned my monitor back on with windows still running.
I'm going to try to roll back the drivers on the graphics card, because that seems to be the most logical thing to start with, but I would still like any advice (or knowledge if this has happened to anyone with vista before) on why this is happening and how to fix it.
I will repost if rolling back the drivers fixes the problem. Hopefully so but if it does, then the latest release for the 9 series is crap.
