I bought an HP Pavilion dv2000 back when Windows Vista first came out and it was working quite well until the video card drivers started acting up 6 months ago. The laptop has an nVidia GeForce Go7200 and would blue-screen-of-death for the folliwng reason:
The blue-screen-of-death would occur randomly while running Windows Vista. No particular application would cause the issue. Then it started occurring during boot up. The only way I could run my laptop was in safe mode.
There was a driver update available through Windows update. I installed the update and it did not resolve the issue.
I reinstalled Vista on my laptop and it still kept happening. I have uninstalled the drivers and it is working with the default Vista video drivers.
Has anyone ever experienced this issue and know how to fix it?
