Presumably you want to update this - have you looked on the manufacturer's website ?

My vivitar DVR 786HD camera is freezing and none of the buttons are working

Take it somewhere warm - most cameras will not operate in extremely low temperatures. This is probably covered in the manual.

My vivicam 3765 is very slow to "recover" between pictures and sometimes freezes up. Can the firmware/drivers be reinstalled in camera? Would this help?

It won't help. and read my other post, if the camera is not fully functional, don't try to put in other software. When Vivitar never gave a firmware update, you can't even get any firmware.

Black screen

This soudns like a common CCD problem that many camera manufacturers are running into for the last few years. You may want to check with Vivitar to see if there's a service advisory or product recall for a defective CCD. If there is, they will repair/replace it for free.

Absent that, First thing I would do is reset the camera. This is a fairly easy procedure which involves either going into your setup menu and choosing "reset," holding down the menu key for 5 seconds, or, removing the batteries for a few minutes. It may be that the firmware loading got corrupted and the camera just needs to be "rebooted," which is something that turning it on/off won't accomplish. But after which, you should have the camera reset to factory default settings.

Another tip is to look for firmware updates. Download and install them.
