Question about Dell Vostro 1000 Notebook
The screen goes black and i have to press esc. then on the right hand corner of the screen a triangle caution sign pops up and say ''display driver r300 stopped working but has recovered can u help me please its really annoying!!
The Vostro 1000 has a serious heat issue. Bad design of the heatsink/fan and CPU. I would bet that your onboard graphics card is also over heating. I would suggest you download speedfan program (its free) and see what temp your machine is running at. AMD's can take upwards of 145 degrees F Intel's depend on the CPU before issues happen.
I just had them send me a new motherboard, heatskink, fan, cpu, and ram for mine as it was heating up to 190 degrees and the monitor would go black and machine would either shut down or stall big time for a few mins. Especially if I was playing any sort of game or rip'n movies.
You can download speed fan here:
If you machine is still under warrantee, Dell knows about this issue and will repair your machine or send you the parts to repair it yourself. That is up to you!
Hope this helps you and others!
