What OS are you running? Cant give you directions without knowing which version of Windows you run.

Also this still might not solve your issue as once you reinstall you can get this issue back with the wrong set of drivers installed.

Did you use Driver Cleaner Pro to remove the drivers and then install the latest ones for your video card?

Use DCP and then restart. You should see that you have a bad resolution and a low color. This is a good sign that the drivers were removed. IF not then go into the device manager and then uninstall the drivers. Then reboot.

Upon the reboot this time you should see what i said above. From there go to the net and get the right drivers. the most current set for your card from teh manufacturer's site. Can do it before you uninstall the drivers as well.

Then just install them. Then reboot again and should be good to go. I just ran into this myself yesterday. I was getting crashes left and right after 5 minutes of loggin in to Vista. Uninstalled the drivers installed the newer set and all god now. Been up and running for over 24 hours without a crash.

There is still a driver error. Since you cleaned the Video Drivers it has to be a different driver that is causing this.

You haven't changed any other hardware other than your video card?

There are drivers for every piece of hardware on your computer elreece. If the event viewer isn't saying anything either then start going through all of your hardware. Do an audio and USB driver reinstall next. Those are two drivers that tend to cause several crashes. USB especially since you can pretty much plug anything in that can potentially screw them up.

Have you checked for any driver updates? Maybe you need a driver update for your sound device since you have SP1 installed. There was a driver conflict with Vista SP1 and some sound and ethernet devices. I would check for updates to those first.
