Default Am I the only one with this problem?

As some of you may know, I have been receiving the display driver nvlddmkm has stopped responding and has recovered error. I have tried several different drivers, removed a stick of memory, even after a fresh install of Vista, the problem still existed. I also changed the voltage on the ram and that did not help. It doesn't matter if I am overclocked or at stock settings. Right now I don't know if this is hardware or software. I think it is more of a software or driver problem. It could be Vista, not sure.

Is anybody else on here having this problem? If so, were you able to find a solution? This is really driving me nuts trying to fix this.

Intel Core i7 920@2.7ghz
Gigabyte X58A-UD3R
Noctua NH-D14
ATI Radeon HD5870
Corsair 6gb DDR3 1600
Corsair 850HX PSU
OCZ Vertex 2 120gb SSD
WD Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500gb

You're most likely not the only one with the problem but some things don't a have a definite fix. The only way to rule out hardware would be to switch out your CPU, Motherboard, RAM and Video Card for others.
