    Display driver stopped working and recovered


    I am facing this problem once in each 3-4 hrs.
    Everything is getting frozen and display is going black
    for 2-3 seconds.Then I am getting a message like:

    Display driver stopped working for Windows Vista(R)
    and recovered.

    The point is that I am running Windows7 Professional
    (32-bit).

    A few minutes ago I got a blue screen.
    Everything is running fine for now but that can happen again.
    Please help me solve this problem.

    These are some information which might be useful:

    Intel(R) G41 Express Chipset (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.1)
    Manufacturer: Intel Corporation
    Chip type: Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family
    Display Memory: 782 MB

    I am getting this error after formatting my PC a few days ago.
    Thanks in advance.

    dont be frustrated, it may happen with your software malfundtions.
    it may happen sometime, but would not repeat in a sequence.
    if there was a repeat tell to analyse the situation

    Hi Manojit,

    You may not be running the most optimal 'display driver' in the computer; you may try to update/re install 'graphics' if you encounter the issue again.

    If you need more help in locating an 'apt driver', please share the 'graphics adapter(s)' installed in your computer. I will try to search for 'optimal drivers'.

    Hope this helps. Do reply if you have any further questions. I would be glad to assist.

    each 3-4 hrs.Meanwhile I have uninstalled and reinstalled
    the driver from device manager. But that didn't solve the problem.

    Where are you getting the drivers from ? Are you going directly to nvidia.com or amd.com ?

    Or the laptops manufacturer.

    I don't think the processor, or a specific GPU has been mentioned. Those could be causing a problem if they are overclocked, or can't be handled by the PSU.

    is it a pc or laptop?
    use process explorer and check for any un wanted program running beside your os
    download it from here:
    Process Explorer

    check for the fans (EPS CPU and GPU fan) and monitor your system temperature. you may use real temp
    from here:
    Real Temp - CPU temperature monitoring
    run check disk error
    you may restore your system to a previous setpoint

    Card name: Intel(R) G41 Express Chipset (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.1)
    It's a built-in graphics card.

    Another information is I also have an ATI Radeon HD 4350 which I was using
    a few months ago.I was getting frequent BSoDs ,so I switched to the built-in
    graphics card.Now I am getting errors from this card also.

    Thanks again for help to everyone who has helped me.
