Every so often, at irregular and unpredictable intervals -- sometimes within a couple of seconds, sometimes a couple of hours apart -- my screen will blank out for a half-second or so and come back on, everything the same except for a warning -- "the display driver IGFX has stopped responding and recovered" or something similar. The problem began when I first bought the computer and reinstalled Windows; the previous owner did not have this problem, though I believe we used the same discs. I updated the driver to no avail, and trying to roll back the driver crashed the computer so I had to use the Windows disc to recover. Virus scans with every program known to man are negative. This has been going on for a year or so, since I first got the computer -- it's a minor irritation, I'm just fed up with it.
Never seems to happen when I'm playing computer games for some reason. Any ideas?
