Question about Computers & Internet

When playing videos on my computer the video driver fails and the video screen goes green... I get a message saying "video driver failed but has recovered" Happens every time i try to watch a video. I'm pretty sure its the driver that windows automatically installs for the video card, but every time i uninstall the driver and try to use the one from nvidia.com... windows updates it to their own as soon as i restart the computer

Most probably the drivers downloaded from Nvidia is not the correct version or an older version for your video card. That is probably windows revert the best options drivers for your video card. You can check the version or the date windows automatically installed from the device manager. You also can also use "Microsoft Updates" to update your drivers.

To remove the video drivers, go to "safemode" and from the "device manager" uninstalled the video drivers.Be sure to download the correct version for you video card and run the installer from Nvidia.

Do update your DirectX too.

Hope it helps.

The screen turns green after playing videos for 20 minures


The Video Controller works off of the RGB principal. RED/Green/Blue pixels. The mix color is dependent on the formation and density of the pixel and rates. When one or more colors are absent the only functioning color will dominate, and it is Green in your case. The screen liquid crystals in Red and Blue are failing and only a screen replacement will fix the situation.

Hi,

I would reccomend updating the drivers to the latest version. You can visit the manufacturers website to obtain these.

Failing this, you could run a Windows update to see if it contains the necessary drivers.

What happen when you hook this monitor up to other PC that has the video setting 1280 X 1024 60 Hz? Just ant to narrow down the problem before opening up the monitor. You may have logic problem in the logic board. If it does the same with other PC, then open it up and inpsect the inside for such thing as failed caps on the logic board or on the main power supply board, I think more likely to be ROM chip on the logic board is scrambled.

HELP!! my computer screen keeps going black when i play games :(


There is probably something wrong with the card. You updated the drivers
after the problem ,,right.

You have 3GB ram so that is ok. Your cpu and video card are just fine,
so the most possible would be the card is failing.

I have posted a stability test and a benchmark/ stress test for you to check the card, download the one for your OS, xp, vista.

If the card is going, it will act up when you test the card.
