Windows 7: Display Driver keeps crashing

Display Driver keeps crashing

Hi,

Periodically my screen will freeze and I will get a message that says display driver stopped working and recovered. However, sometimes my computer will resume being normal...and other times my screen will be totally disconfigured, jumbled...and messed up and I have to force shut down. Also periodically when I do restart my computer, there would be bluish streaks and $ signs all jumbled across the black screen before it says windows is starting up. When I am in safe mode, none of these problems occur. My operating system is windows 7. Because sometimes my display driver recovers when I tilt my computer a certain way when it seems to "crash" and the fact that this problem doesn't even occur in safe mode...I am not sure whether this is a driver software program, driver conflict, or an actual hardware issue. Appreciate any help in advance!!!

Thanx!!!

Welcome aboard

Some more info is needed like your graphics cards info, how old the card/s are and what is your motherboard, processor, RAM , etc.
Follow the guide : System Info - See Your System Specs and let us know

Your specs would help, particularly what graphics card you have and, as this is a graphics issue that could potentially be related to a power supply problem, the model number and power rating of your PSU.

In the meantime (and I'm assuming that you are talking about a desktop here), try the following:

Check that the card is seated squarely in its socket, and that it is lined up correctly with the expansion slot in the case. The easiest way to do this is to remove and reinsert it (take the opportunity to blow any dust out of the slot). You might need to loosen the motherboard mounting screws slightly to achieve this (retighten them afterwards). Again, on the same principle, disconnect and reconnect any auxiliary power connector(s) on the graphics card. If the PSU is modular, do this at the PSU end of the cable(s) as well.

If it is a laptop, then it could be a cooling issue. Are the air vents clear, and are the fans kicking in when required?

try Fixio Driver Finder. it's gonna find corrupted driver and replace it with new one. you don't have to be a computer expert and know all the details.
