Uninstall the latest drivers. Go to Nvidia and manually choose drivers, ie tell Nvidia that you have a Geforce>9 series> 9800GTX>Vista-64bit

perhaps just reinstall the drivers that came with the cd? Maybe the new ones have an unsolved bug

My friend had similar problems. Turns out the problem was that he had picked up a free developers copy of Vista which locked up every time he installed the NVidia drivers. The problem disappeared once he bought a retail version. Do you have a retail copy or developers?
