Angry Vista getting black screen of death when i install nvidia geforce 9300ge driver
Hi, im having some trouble here. I just installed a fresh copy of windows vista ultimate (32bit) on my pc and installed my new nvidia gefore 9300GE graphics card. I installed the OS with no problems, but then when i did the windows update and it grabbed the drivers for the 9300ge, after it asked to reboot, it just sits at the BSoD. Im positive its the nvidia driver because when i boot into safe mode and remove just the nvidia driver, i can then reboot normally. What can i do? Has anyone had this problem? I really want to use my graphics card!

I would suggest getting all of your updates done before adding any additional programs/drivers.

If your computer has Windows Vista(32-bit) and the NVIDIA GeForce 9300GE, this is the graphics driver that you need:

NVIDIA GeForce 301.42(
