Question about Dell Inspiron 1720 17" Widescreen Notebook, 2.0GHz INTEL CORE 2 DUO, WiFi, 2GB RAM, 500GB, CDRW/DVDR... (883585945740)
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.
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.
