Windows 7: Display driver problem

Display driver problem


I am having a lot of trouble with my display driver failing. Typically the computer will be on for a while and then the screen will go black and then come back with a message stating the display driver had stopped responding. this can happen multiple times. It has already done it three times since I have been writing this.Very annoying. Oh yes have just upgraded to windows 10 but it was doing it before when on Win 7

Nvidia 550 Ti I think

Could be your 550, how old is it ?

If you had an issue with 7 and now an issue with 10, I suspect the card, time for something made in this decade :)

Are you using 359.06 ????

Download them again and do a custom clean install.
