Windows 7: display driver problem

05 Nov 2012   #11

Windows 7 64bit
 
 

I am using HDMI. I have no idea on the quality of the cable. Let me see how it goes after I did the driver thing above. Ill get back to you if I continue to have problems.

Thanks

Does your video card support any other connection method that you can use to test the HDMI as possibly being the culprit, like DVI or VGA? HDMI can communicate two ways, as the video drivers are loading your GPU will quickly turn your display off and on, normally we don't see this, sometimes we can. But if your monitor doesn't like this and reports a possible display issue in response to it your drivers might crash.

I had this issue when I used HDMI to plug into my HDTV, but not monitor because my HDTV didn't like when my GPU loaded drivers and "flashed" the display.

FWIW: I have a toshiba that when checking for microsoft updates tells me that they have an updated nvidia driver for my graphics board. BIG MISTAKE
It put my laptop in never never land.
I was able to recover but it stuck in the back of my mind , never update video drivers from MS.
Now I go to the manufacturers or manufacturers (toshiba) site to update drivers.

Just a warning..

Or in the case of ATI/AMD, they actually now handle video card driver updates instead of the computer manufacturer.
