During gaming my pc is freeezing for about 20 seconds I have no picture. The message below is a copy of the Vista problems report which finds a solution but the solution is too download the latest Nvidia Drivers which I have done so but I still get this message.
I'm not to clever with pc's so is there anyone out there that can shed some light on what the message is telling me and how I go about stopping it!???

My pc spec is
Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66GHz
ASUS P5N-E Mothrboard
512Mb Nvidia 8600GTS
2x1Gb strips of OCZ 'Gold Edition' High speed gaming RAM 800MHz
320Gb HD
