The following message keeps appearing on my bosses laptop. It was fine until yesterday, then the following error popped up.

The NVIDIA Display Panel Extension cannot be created

Possible reasons include:
Disabled graphics hardware acceleration. To enable Hardware Acceleration:

1. Right click on your desktop, select Properties, the Settings tab, and click Advanced.
2. Click the Troubleshoot tab and move the "Hardware acceleration" slider all the way to Full.
3. Click OK.
4. If prompted, restart the computer.

Right clickin gon the desktop brings the same message up again, but click on OK then brings up the usual context menu.

I follow the instructions as in the message and it prompts a computer restart. I do that, but the same happens again.

Is anyone familiar with this message and are able to help?

I'm having a nightmare with these laptops and won't be buying them from the same place again.

I get the same message but it pops up when I right click on a file to delete, copy, or cut. It says to reinstall video driver but I'm on about my third different driver release with the same BS.
