Apparently from what I've read, the same shit happens to ATI drivers as well

It appears that my "Display driver not working..." troubles are over!

Here's what I did:

- Installed Vista Ultimate 32[/color]-bit.
- Did not install nForce chipset drivers.
- Did not install Realtek HD audio drivers.
- Did not install Forceware video drivers...yet.
- Installed the following Vista updates:

- Then I installed the Forceware 163.69 WHQL drivers.

In the end I did not install the nForce or HD audio drivers, but everything works and gaming is rock solid stable now
