berserkeley Posted September 18, 2008 Report Share Posted September 18, 2008 "I wake up every day, right here, right in Punxsutawney, and it's always February 2nd, and there's nothing I can do about it." I have to perform a complete factory restore every few weeks/months on my HP Pavilion dv9723cl with an nVidia GeForce 7150m/ nForce 630m running Vista Home Premium 32 bit SP1 if I want even the most basic video functions to work. The mere act of opening Roxio (after a fresh install of the software and restart) shouldn't cause video memory problems especially when the same program worked totally fine with the same driver just minutes earlier and works totally fine with the same driver after a factory restore. The problem seems like the chipset storing certain video files that it never dumps until the video memory becomes so full of permanent files it cannot fun anything. So here's my question: 1) Do the display drivers (like the most recent 177.98) also include the chipset drivers (like the driver for the PCI system management device)? 2) If so, then do I also have uninstall and delete each included drivers or just uninstall and delete the main display driver? If not, then can I try to mod the INF of the 15.24 nForce drivers from the nVidia website? 3) Do the newest display drivers (the drivers in the 170s) resolve the PowerMizer problems or do we still have to fix it with the regedit for them? I need to perform a factory restore soon and this time I want to make sure I have all of the driver issues resolved and maybe, just maybe, tomorrow I'll wake up at it won't be Groundhog Day any longer.
