    You should follow the steps given in the KB article. Also make sure that you have the latest NVIDIA nForce drivers.

    nForce chipset has had weird problems over the years, especially with driver support. You may find that a fresh install of the chipset drivers and their associated components will be of value to you, especially after upgrading from Windows Vista.
