Windows 7: Display Driver Crashing?...

Display Driver Crashing?...

So, for about 2 months now my display driver is constantly crashing. I have to boot up in safe mode to stop the worries of the crashing. What'll happen is, I'll be doing something simple, possibly even playing a low graphic game such a Minecraft or opening a .txt file, and the screen will freeze and start flickering black. It'll come back to the desktop and say something along the lines of "Realtek Display Driver has crashed and successfully recovered." Yes, it's recovered, yayy, but no about 10 seconds later it'll keep crashing, until the extent of where the screen just is stuck on a black screen. I'm really getting angered by this, if any help can be provided, please post below.

Thanks, Collision

Hello, first update your system specs: System Info - See Your System Specs

Second, if you have BSOD's will be good to post a minidup files here, so the BSOD squad will be able to analyze them.

And will be good to try to remove drivers using this method: GeForce Driver Installation Guide - NVIDIA Forums
