Default 9x.xx Series drivers and 6600

I have a BFG 6600 and I can not upgrade to any drivers above the 84.21 version. If I do, my system locks up when any game/browser/application plays video.

Has anyone run into this? I can't believe that my card can't use the latest drivers. I've did a clean install of Windows XP Pro, and the problem still happened.

Some of the latest games don't run as well on my system because of this I believe. I upgraded this past time from 81.98 to 84.21 and saw a difference in tearing in some games. I wish I could upgrade to the latest drivers to improve my performance even more. This issue has really turned me off of Nvidia cards/drivers. If anyone has dealt with this let me know what you did to resolve.. Thanks.

Sounds like something more may be borked. I have a 6600GT in a spare box, works just fine with latest drivers regardless of what it is asked to do.
