    Make sure you are not using a screen resolution at a refresh rate that
    your monitor does not support. Under Control Panel > Device Manager >
    Monitors see if your monitor is detected.

    If the above is OK, then I'd suggest downloading the latest drivers from
    the nVidia website (make sure you download the GeForce 6 series driver).
    Remove the current driver, delete the folder the driver is contained in
    (default C:\Program Files\nVidia\WinVista64\(driver folder). Restart
    computer and install new driver from download location. I use a program
    called Driver Cleaner (DriverCleaner.NET) to make sure all remnants of
    the driver are removed (reg keys, etc) - haven't had any problems
    updating drivers when needed.
