Windows 7: Display Driver

Display Driver

Every now and again, my screen goes black and after it has come back, I get a message saying "Display driver stopped responding" with some more words underneath. Unfortunately, the message doesn't stay on the screen long enough to properly read what it says.

Does this mean I have a faulty display driver please and if so, what should I do about it please?

Which driver do you have installed for your GPU? Check in Device Manager and post back with the info, we'll go from there.
