Display driver problem

I have a Compaq SR5350F, bought 3 months ago, and I have Vista. Every so often, the screen goes blank, then comes back on and I get a message that says, "Display driver has stopped running, but has recovered." WTF??

Try this:

START/ right click Computer goto Manage/ click Services

Here are the services I have stopped and disabled. You can right click each service and goto properties to disable them.

readyboost
superfetch
print spooler - must be re-enabled and started if you use a printer
server
computer browser
secondary logon
security center
windows error reporting
windows search
windows firewall - must be re-enabled and started to use windows firewall

Hope that works, and please rate my response if it was helpful.

Thanks and good luck

    If your display card is an NVidia, you may want to try this instead..

    Go to windows/system32/drivers and rename nvlddmkm.sys to

    nvlddmkm.sys.old. Go to the nvidia directory and find the file nvlddmkm.sy_

    and copy it to windows/system32. Using the cmd window (DOS box) type EXPAND.EXE nvlddmkm.sy_ nvlddmkm.sys.
    When the expansion is complete, copy the new nvlddmkm.sys to windows/system32/drivers and restart the computer.

    or, you could even try this..

    go to the folder:

    c:\nvidia\winvista\driver version number\

    then open setup, and install the drivers

Blank white screen in my Acer Travelmate 5730 Laptop


Hello Karthik,
This must surely be a problem with your monitor, because you say that you see the white screen while boot up. If this is a graphic driver issue, you may have the problem after booting up in windows. Since its been only a month old laptop, the product must be in warranty for sure. Take away any CDs in the drive, any USB drives and see if this white screen appears. Let us know.

Thank you!

Turn on Laptop gets to desktop with icons then screen goes blank


By "where I want to go", do you mean going on the internet? If all you are getting is a blank screen, then you have the "about:blank" virus. Go here, print out the instructions, and read them well. Then read them again and follow them closely. At one time I had it on a desktop system and the instructions worked just fine.

Display driver problem


This is a common sign of a driver conflict error. It usually happens when two or more drivers are requesting the same resources, or if the diver has become corrupted or if the driver was just plainly poorly written.

Below is a link to HP/Compaq's Driver update page for your computer.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=2093&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3644737&lang=en

The driver you want in particular is the Graphics driver (The 2nd on the list) Though you may want to update all that are not up to date(This would Lessen the likelyhood of future conflicts)

Another possible soultion might be to upgrade away from integrated graphics.

Hope this helps,
Dave
