Display Driver Issues

My Laptop has recently been giving me problems when playing a online game. it will black out for a few seconds and then reappear saying "display driver stopped responding and has recovered" i've tried to update my driver but it seems what my laptop has isn't what matches with HP.com's downloadable drivers for my model. It says my model should have Nvidia but really under device manager it says " Mobile Intel(R) 945GM Express Chipset Family" I tried to download the Nvidia to see if it'd work but after trying to install it, it brings up and error message saying it doesn't fit my model which HP's driver page says it should. I'm lost on what to do and dont know if maybe i should buy a new graphics card, although i've been told with it being a laptop it might be impossible. Can someone Help me?

Do one thing.just call up your hp customer care ask the exact website for updating your bios.also update the drivers of ur intel graphics card. most high end online games need latest nvidia graphics card.You made a mistake by purchasing intel graphics card.

Display driver fails while watching videos


Are you watching the video on-line? From the DVD/CD rom drive? What is your OS? Windows 7? 32 or 64bit? Is this a recent occurrence? I'm sure you have done ALL your Windows and HP updates, if on-line have you tried another browser? If you haven already looked the drivers can be found here, choose your OS: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=4290955& Have you verified the machine is clean and free of dust in the fan, vents, heatsink? No Overheating? Getting proper air flow? Only use the drivers from the HP site or Windows updates.

Lenovo n500 3000 display driver problem?


Other than RAM there are also other things to be considered to be able to experience great gaming experience. Commonly the slow and laggy experience are due to insufficient RAM, low video memory, internet connction if your playing online,disk space and processor. And no its nor a driver issue. The best way is to solve this is to check the recommended "system requirements" of the games your playing. If all requirements are met i'm pretty sure you'll be able to play games smoothly. good luck!

more info ... model of laptop, year it was made, how much RAM you got and video card it's using?

did ya also try un-installing game, un-installing the video driver, cleaning your registry, restarting the laptop, re-installing video driver from tosiba's driver website page then re-installing the game (downloading the newest video drivers from Nvidia may cause a B.S.O.D. install at your own risk if you do so) ...

or playing around with the resolution either thru the O/S display properties or in the game video options??

Give that a try and let me know how it goes ...

Display Driver stopped working error


Try adjusting the hardware acceleration in the display properties, then in the game settings. If this doesn't fix it, then there may be compatibility issues between the game and the video drivers.

Video/sound problem


When you say Reboot, I assume you mean re-install Windows XP. Many issues can occur if you do not install the drivers properly after installing Windows. The proper order is as Follows:

Notebook System Software
Chipset Utility
Video Driver
Audio Driver
Network Driver
Wireless Driver
Touchpad Driver

Also after installing Windows and the drivers, you'll need to go to Java.com and install Java, then adobe.com and install the latest Flash and Shockwave Players.

It is also recommended that you have the latest BIOS flash of the system. The current bios version is A09
