Default 6600 Gt Problems

Hey there i have had problems with my video card whilst playing games since i have d/led new Nvida drivers. The drivers that came with the card seem to work fine, but every now and then the pc will crash. Any solutions or ideas to this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Remove all video drivers. Clean your registry of all Nvidia or ATI reg entries. Reboot. Now download the lastest Nvidia drivers. I have the felling you installed the updated drivers on "top" of the older version(s). That can cause conflicts!!
