Display Driver Stopped working and has successfully recovered!

But it keeps happening! Its so frustrating, as my laptop freezes so I know when its going to happen. Im not sure if its over-heating or its because Im usually on my web cam when it happens. It freezes, screen goes black flashes back on sometimes a few times before I close everything and it stops. An error message pops up sying "display driver zxguebbv (not actual letters cant remember em!) has stopped working but has successfully recovered" and a little yellow triangle with an exclaimation mark is on task bar. I downloaded flash player to see if it helps and tried to download DirectX but told me I had to try again later. Any info would be fab! Thanks :o) - otherwise my laptop will be in pieces by the end of the week lol I have the same problem and my computer is new and no where near it's memory capacity so there must also be another reason for this annoying error.

    sorry I only typed out the last line on my post. fixya added the rest on for some reason.

    My query is regarding the nvlddmkm driver not responding and I know it isn't due to overheating. Sorry about the confusion I did ask fixya to edit it but still not done.

Sounds like a common over-heating issue. Make sure your laptop is getting enough air circulation, both under and around the unit. Most laptops draw air from underneath and displace it out the sides or rear. Places like carpets, lounge chairs and beds cause the laptop to sink into them and prevent the vents and fans from drawing in cool air. To prevent this, try placing a firm board or other object under the laptop when using it in such places. If this doesn't work, try to observe if the fans are working correctly, if they aren't noticeably running or seem to quiet, then a faulty power cord or thermostat on the heat sinks may be the problem.

Hi. I think you have uninstall your display driver and download the updated drivers on the Lenovo driver support website.

Go to this website and download the video driver for your laptop: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?doctypeind=9&template=/productselection/landingpages/downloadsDriversLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo
just make sure that you choose the correct or corresponding operating system that you have on your laptop (e.g XP, VISTA or Windows 7)

After downloading the video driver install it on your laptop then restart you computer. Goodluck!

Your computers are running out of memory. Try to close any programs or processes that are not required. If you need to multitask while using video you can try to upgrade your ram. This is listed last but try this first. Search online for updated drivers and install them first.
