Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Display driver nvlddmkm has stopped working...Vista 32 bit
All right, to preface this entire message, I am an amateur with complicated computer fixes. System Restore is pretty much the extent of my trouble shooting knowledge.
Last night, after attempting to open a VLC media file, my laptop essentially shit itself. The screen went black, then came back on. Little artifacts started appearing all over. The computer, or display at least, completely freezes. A little warning message popped up in the task bar area, saying "display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered." This seems like a lie, though since all the problems remain.
I'm on my parents computer writing this post. I've looked online for solutions, and found this is a somewhat common problem for Vista. Suggestions for a solution include a hotfix from Microsoft, deleting a regular Windows update, messing with the power the computer draws, and so on. The problem is, the freezing/glitching upon start up is so bad I can barely access anything before the computer freaks out again and restarts itself.
I can run in Safe Mode with no problems.
As the title suggests, I'm running 32 bit Vista on my HP laptop. I have 3 gigs of RAM, a 512 MB videocard, dual core processor.
I'm at a loss. Does anyone have any ideas on what to do here? Or am I completely fucked?
This game is all about the racism. I hate to think about all the backlash that will be involved but the truth must be told. The truth about a man who kills people by dropping them from his crane. Political correctness be damned. Damned to the max.
