Nvlddmkm + Graphics Card Update

Hey guys,

Recently my computer has been hit with the nvlddmkm.sys error. Basically the screen blinks black every few minutes and then finally the monitor dies on me and requires a reboot before I can use my computer again.

I have found a temporary fix, by deleting the nvlddmkm.sys file in System32 > Drivers.

After rebooting my computer however, the Graphics Card Update rolls back as if I never installed the updates.

I have a GeForce 9600 GT and the latest driver version is 196.21.

That's the update I try installing.

Basically, if I don't delete the nvlddmkm.sys file, it won't roll back but I will be persisted with the error.

If I do delete it, I must re-install the update every time I reboot my computer.

All help appreciated!
