display driver restarts my computer

Post by ryanbriggs on Fri Mar 12, 2010 6:09 am

Can anyone help?

Just in last week my screen goes all distorted and then blacks off, only to come back with an error msg saying my display driver ............... has failed. Within a few mins my computer resets, sometimes it comes back other times i have to remove battery and leave for a while. Malware scan came up clear.

Hello,

You're using nVidia graphics right? Download the latest driver from here and install it:
