    I'm using this laptop: http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?item=N82E16834220215

    When I'm in World of Warcraft Fullscreen it sometimes freezes and blacks out for a moment, when I tab out I get this error message..

    I recently did a fresh Install of Vista Home 32bit that came with the laptop, I thought I had all the drivers updated, apparently not.

    Also I'm getting graphical errors in World of Warcraft, When I'm in shadowform my shoulders edges are transparent its really annoying and I don't know if its a driver problem or possibly settings or hardware problem!

    ok according to most the problem tends to be with vista being very picky about bad sectors in ram, where xp is not so picky and wont lock up your game like vista because of it. Since theres terrible driver support for my laptop to downgrade to xp, my only option is to upgrade to Vista Ultimate 64bit with brand new 4 gigs of ram.

    Thats the solution to the first part of my problem.

    The second part is the graphical errors I'm getting in game, I don't know whats causing them!

    Could it be linked to bad ram and Vista?

    Possible Fix I just fixed this problem on my computer today. It may sound simple but first i just disabled the video card driver and downloaded a new driver from http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us and installed it. Since i restarted i haven't had a single error. Like i said it seems to simple to work for everyone but it definately worked for me. Let me now if it works :)

    btw i'm running on a GeForce 8600 if that helps at all
