I've owned this laptop for several months now with no problems until now.
ASUS K40IN Pentium dual-core 2 + 2
4GB
NVIDIA GEFORCE G102M CUDA 512MB

Whenever I try to play a game (even chess titans) the screen repeatedly blacks out and I get this message: (display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered).
It even does it when I try to open the NVIDIA control panel.
The most annoying of all is: when I try to open chat with certain friends on windows live mesages my msn crashes.

Have you attempted to do a driver update for you graphics card?
I would never ask a person to do something that I wouldn't do myself.

I guess that I wonder why you didn't get the Vista video drivers from the Asus website.

I would uninstall the current video drivers and try the VGA drivers provided by Asus.

Ok I tried that; I completly wiped out the video drivers and all associated files and went back to basic VGA "EWWWWWW" Still had the problem although this time for most things it could nott detect 3D drivers or something. I installed the graphics drivers from ASUS and still have the same problem.
When I enable Data Execution Prevention I get a DEP error instead. Vista problems?
Any further suggestions would be greatly appreciated thanks.
