Windows 7: Display driver stopped responding and has recovered

OK, I have done the above procedure, my video driver version is 8.17.12.5721, driver date is 7th June 2010 and Adobe Flash player is 10.1

But when I view the Youtube videos with enable hardware acceleration ticked, I get the same message. But when I untick this option, the problem disappears.

So could this be the problem with the latest Flash version which is 10.1?

So if you untick the hardware acceleration option you are having no issues?

Yes, I had no issues, even with the old drivers.

I have another question to ask. When I install the newer Nvidia drivers, won't the program automatically uninstall the older drivers first?

This is the first time in my entire life I am installing video drivers so I am not sure of the correct procedure.

Also is enable hardware accelerator important in Youtube?

Well... If disabling hardware acceleration works for you, I see no problem with leaving it disabled.

If there is a problem with either flash or the drivers who knows? Could be either. Maybe your card just doesn't like the hardware acceleration option.

Well I still get the error message when I play DVDs using Windows Media Player!

How do I solve this issue? Despite updating my graphics card, Windows Media Player shows the same error message as the Youtube videos when I enable acceleration for Youtube videos!

This problem has been with me since I bought this laptop! How do I solve this issue?

This is generally caused by overheating

It could not be caused by overheating because I just switched on my laptop. Besides, the problem first came when I purchased the laptop.

Sorry Blanchflower.. I haven't forgot about you.

It is possible that the card is faulty. Being that you had problems from day one, and the problem still occurs even after a clean installation of Windows 7. How long is the warranty on your laptop?

Do you still have your recovery partition in place? I know it sounds like a real pain, but if you do decide to make a warranty claim, you should load your PC with the pre-installed OS. Changing the operating system could very well void the warranty.

Do you have a computer shop close by, to at least have them test the card?

There are just so many suggestions that I can comfortably give to you without the risk of you causing more potential problems. I will research the Nvidia forums and see if there are any similar problems being posted. If I hear of any solutions, I will post my findings. Who knows? Another member may stumble upon this thread and solve the problem.

Try to be patient (I know it's easier said than done) and keep us informed of any new developments.
