Game freezing after quitting

I recently updated the driver on my Nvidia card since I got a Steam error that pointed that way.

However, now whenever I'm done playing BF:BC2 and press the quit button, my laptop freezes.

My old driver was 195.(41?), while my new driver is 197.16.

My laptop specs are

Operating System Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit
CPU Type Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 2.26G
Screen 16"
Memory Size 4GB DDR2
Hard Disk 320GB
Optical Drive DVD Super Multi
Graphics Card NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT
Video Memory 512MB

I realize I could just revert to an older video card drive, but then Steam would ask me to update it for another game (TF2 oddly enough).

Should I even be posting this here? Would I be better served by asking about this at an appropriate EA forum?

I got an error message "Failed to create D3D Device!"

I looked it up and it said the problem had to do with outdated drivers.

This was the Steam page I found and followed the instructions
