That error could be cause by many things. You need to eliminate all of the possible reasons by a process of elimination to get to what it could be.

I hate to advise people to try and fix their computers by buying parts at random and testing to see if the new part will fix the problem. It is not an intelligent way to do this.

But if you insist (and resist) then I will tell you that the problem could be a faulty video card. The 200 series nVidia and corresponding series in AMD were problematic.

W7 is a very graphics intensive operating system that takes full advantage of the advanced features of a graphics card, which XP did not. Does this make it the "fault" of the OS? No. The more powerful OS simply exposes the defects.

So if you do not wish to bother yourself with doing any diagnostics on your own to see if it may be one of the other, cheaper to fix reasons people get these error messages then you can replace your video card for a start.

Better, if you can borrow someone's video card (of equal or greater version) then you could test your system for a bad video card without paying money to do so.
Be sure to completely remove the old video card drivers and related software from Remove Programs before trying any new card.

Everyone Including me is having this Issue if you have had a MS update

The new Netframe work might be the culprit ever since i got updates by MS and installing a new Game I get the driver failed recover every 5 to 10 seconds very annoying

So far I have found no fix others say it mght be the Flash device i tryed clean installs etc even going back to old drivers nothing seems to work

Formatting im afraid will just send you back here again


Lets hope these guys figure out the problem and upate the software again
