IGFX drivers stopped working. etc

Hi i have a acer aspire 5315 and have recently 1gb of ram (elixir) ddr2 667
then subsequently updated my drivers, ever since then while playing World of Warcraft the game freezez blinks to black the has the error message
"igfx driver has stopped working but has recovered" and once it does this 3 or 4 times i have to restart the game. i am unsure as to wheather it is the ram or the drivers.

A friend told me that installing older drivers may fix the problem but vista won't let me (or im doing it wrong) please help.

Not sure what info you might need so ask me and ill do my best to provide it for you. Hope you can help. cheers Josh from melbourne.

Igfx driver means your graphics driver. Intel Extreme Graphics Driver.
Update your graphics driver or re-install and it will fix the thing. Its a problem with your ram if you have on board VGA which uses ram as the memory. Download and Install drivers required for your graphics driver. You can find them from the Intel site.
Changing dram settings might work but it has to be done with caution coz it has to be done in bios settings.
Relax memory timings and
Underclock the video card
mmm might work also.
please rate the answer if it works for you Thanks Best of Luck

I want to upgrade my hard drive.


If you have 50% or more disk space free then you may not need a larger hard disk at this time. If you have 512Mb of RAM, you can get better performance with 1Gb or better still 2Gb of RAM if your Acer can support more than 1Gb of RAM.

Your system support only 2Gb, only 1Gb at one bank. Please Checkout http://www.memoryx.net/aspire53151.html

you can even have your system Scan "Scan My System" from this site to give you an accurate system details.

Hope this fix your problem!

Upgrading Acer Aspire T180


Try putting back the old RAM.

If it does not happen anymore, then it means it was the RAM.

This does not mean that the new CorsairRAM is necessarily faulty, but that it is having compatibility problems with one of the other devices, for example the video adapter.

I have a friend who has an Acer Aspire 5315 running Vista and it was pretty slow right out of the box with 1gb of ram. I upgraded his Ram to 2gb and it ran moderatly faster and smoother. Vista is a demanding OS because it's so graphical in nature. Windows Vista requires more ram then XP plus a better CPU to run smoothly. His had a 1.6ghz Celeron which is not that great of a CPU to begin with but uping your ram will usually up your performance a few degrees. Be careful with cheap ram it can run hot and unstable. Make sure go with a name brand PNY, Corsair, Kingston, etc. Don't just buy House ram (generic) because it's cheap. It's not worth wasting your money on junk ram.

Hope this helps. M~
