I used to Download TWEAKS RUS drivers they worked Great but I cant log in to get my downloads. server issue.

That error occurs because of an unstable GPU overclock... tone down your clock speeds, and that display error will stop happening

Don't dent the case! (again?
). I did that once and I felt really, really bad the next morning.

The fact that you have tried multiple versions of their drivers while still getting the same result makes me think that something else is the problem. It's been a while since I've run an Nvidia card but I do remember that the "Driver has stopped responding" error can the the result of a few different things.

Not sure if you do it already but you could try the uninstall driver -> reboot to safe mode -> driver sweeper/cleaner -> reboot -> load new drivers methodology.

To be honest though if I was you I would start clocking things down (whether it be CPU/FSB or GPU) to see if it's the result of instability.

EDIT: You are running stock. I was going of your sig.

Roll back to the last known-good driver and see what happens.

Surely there were Nvidia drivers published before you decided to install Vista?

Nvidia Driver Archives That takes you back to 12/07.

The 178 drivers are crap. So is the new 180 beta. I had this same problem. Just REALLY wierd video issues. Great framerates of games that looked like total crap. Or would make my screen turn all white for no reason whatsoever.

Last known GOOD driver 175.19 for xp. Everything looks SO much better, but you will take a considerable FPS hit. I averaged about 40% FPS decrease. But the visual quality is +100%.

For Vista try this one.
