Question about Nikon D60 + AF-S DX VR NIKKOR 18-55 mm Lens and AF-S VR DX 55-200 mm Lens Including Charger, Lithium batt... Digital Camera
There're actually two buttons. Press and hold the Info and zoom-in buttons (both marked with a green dot) for more than two seconds.
Full details are in the "Two-Button Reset" section of the manual (page 38 in my copy). If you need a manual you may download a copy from here.

Take the lens off and continue pressing the shutter untill it doesn't react anymore, you should then have a normal menu without the error message.Put your lens on and you're all sorted.Cheaper and less hassle than sending it to Nikon.

SOURCE: Nikon D40 Memory Card Error
Hello. Make sure the write-protect switch on the SD card is in the UP (nearer to the contacts) position. Try the card in an SDHC capable reader on your computer first. Note that the SD card can only be inserted one way - make sure you're not putting it in upside-down! If the computer recognizes the presence of inserted card (whether it can read it or not), format it at FAT32. When finished, remove properly (icon in system tray) and insert into your D40 slot, WITH THE CAMERA OFF!! Turn on the D40, and if it now recognizes the SD card, FORMAT it again, in the camera. Good luck.

No drivers needed for Vista either. But make sure that you use the USB cable included with the Nikon D40x. My Cannon cable (although it looks identical, produces a Device not recognized error) with the D40x. The Nikon cable works fine, of course... I now have them marked.

Chances are good that it's not your camera, but your lens. In a darker atmosphere, you need a fast lens, meaning you need a lens that has a wide aperture (1.4 to 2.8) I'm guessing you're using a lens thats' 3.5 or larger. (Yes, the larger apertures have the smaller numbers)
If your camera was spending all it's time moving in and out trying to focus, it's probably because there was not enough light for the camera to distinguish a focal point. Same thing happens when you shoot a solid blue sky. No focal point.
Help me understand by telling me what lens you're using and what settings you were using on the camera.

I had the same problem with my D40x - I changed my USB cable to a much more robust one and all my problems went away.
You shouldn't need a driver, most OS's will recognise it as an imaging device.
