New Nvidia Driver gives me a blue screen
So i've been trying to update my Nvidia driver and whenever I download the 297.03 version my computer almost instantly crashes and give me the blue screen. once I uninstall it it goes back to normal. I'm trying to update it to work better with games like team fortress 2 and portal 2. I don't know if i can update it with an older driver but any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
