“Display driver stopped responding and has recovered” error

How do I fix this ???

The error message (“display driver stopped responding & has recovered”) follows a system freeze, a short blackout. Then everything works fine.

Does anyone know a fix.

I have a pc windows 7

Thanx 4 your help

Have you tried updating your video card's drivers? Usually it's best to get the ones directly from the manufacturer.

Does this happen a lot, or is it a once-off error? I had this once on my laptop and it was weird/scary, everything just locked up. But I haven't had it since. If it's once off, just forget it. If regular, update/roll back your drivers.

Re: “Display driver stopped responding and has recovered” error

whats your graphic card ATI ? or NVIDIA ?
you can find the latest drivers or older ones in the official ATI or nVIDIA sites .

ati offficial site
ATI Radeon

nvidia official site
Welcome to NVIDIA - World Leader in Visual Computing Technologies

the second way is to check from the device manager in display adapters and then update drivers .
but its better to download from the official site

Actually, the Service Tag is what you need for the Dell site. It will take you directly to the drivers you need for your system.
