The NVIDIA Display Driver Service service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s).

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

That is what it says. I know its the video card. I am using a NVIDIA G-Force 4. I have the latest updates. I wanna know if there is anyway I can prevent this form happening again or will I need to buy a new one.


I forgot to mention if I should be worried about the computer dying on me. I have a lot of work on this computer and do not want to lose it.

This particular error is related to the drivers that help your video card "talk" to the rest of the computer (and to Windows).
To fix it you'll have to uninstall the nVidia software from the Control Panel...Add/Remove Programs applet. Then go to this link and download the appropriate version for your system: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

Once it's downloaded, double click on the file to install it on your system.

Gotta do that a gain huh. . . >< I started looking for the lowering of power option and other stuff so it doesn't stress the video card. . .Well I made myself dizzy because I kept changing the settings. :thumbsup:
