So one day I say "#$%^ it" and uninstall anything Nvidia. After the computer reboots, windows installs the last known driver certified and compatible.
This old ass driver here... 220.127.116.1193 from back in 7/13/2009 has not crashed once. Not in STO, or anything else. STO complains every time I start it up that I'm using old drivers, but I ignore it. The game runs great now and Nvidia can kiss my grits. Their drivers suck, and might be hurting STO sales because people don't know why they are crashing. It's the drivers... plain and simple.
I have a pair of GTS 250 in SLI mode.
I'm using the latest issue of Nvidia Drivers, from about the middle of the second week of Open Beta for STO.
I do not experience any of the problems you are sharing, which leads me to believe that you may actually have other issues with your hardware/software configuration that is causing your issues.
I also run Windows 7 64-bit edition. I am using an AMDx2 64-bit 6000+ CPU, 4GB of RAM (ECC at that) and have a higher end (At the time) Asus motherboard M2N32-SLI Deluxe.
