OK, I have been having this problem since purchasing a Gateway Laptop on July 2009. Please allow me to give you a brief history about this.
When I purchased the laptop, it came with Windows Vista Premium 64 bit preinstalled. But the problem is, whenever I open Windows Media Player, there is an error message which says Display Nvidia Windows kernal driver version 186.52 has stopped responding and has successfully recovered.
Then, when I did a clean reinstall of Windows 7 Premium 64 bit on November 2009, the same problem appeared. I had no choice but to use VLC media player to watch DVDs. Thus, I ignored this problem for the time being because whenever I played games like Football Manager 2010 or Sims 3, the problem did not appear.
But the last straw came when I updated my Adobe Flash to version 10.1 and tried to watch Youtube videos. The videos will play for about 10 seconds and then suddenly, the video will stop, turn green and the same message with regards to the Display driver pops out. To solve this issue, I had to untick
Enable hardware acceleration on the settings of the Flash Player by right clicking the video. This problem did not arise when I used an older version of Flash which was 10.0.
I tried to update, reinstall my video drivers
but it seems that this mobile driver version is the latest and also reinstalling the drivers did not solve these issues.
Please help! I am a newbie when it comes to computers and I really want to solve this problem!
