I just resently installed the driver to my Nvidia video card, that went fine. But when i go to shut down my computer it freezes on the shut down screen. Everytime. Everything else works fine tho. No problems anywhere else but it freezes when i go to shut it down..
Any ideas?

I am taking for granted that you are running XP. Where does it lock at shut down? IF you boot into safe mode and then try a shut down does it freeze as well?

ok first off.. yes XP...... It shuts down on the blue screen that says windows is now shutting down.. right after it saves the settings and junk.
And yes it does the same thing in safe mode.

Have you tried uninstalling your nV driver, as well as your AGPSet drivers? Reinstalling those can make a world of difference.

Just don't shut down your computer. I rarely shut down my computer. It takes less time to get it back to where you were when you left it, and it's not so harsh on the components of your system. I imagine a jolt of electricity to your motherboard everytime you start cant be too good for it. IMO.
