Once in a while my laptop screen goes black and then resolves itself with an error message stating:

Display Driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version xxx.xx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.

Sorry I do not remember the specific number but when it happens again I will definately post it here. This occurs a lot when I am browsing flash movies or jsut clicking around on my laptop sometimes.

System Specs:

Toshiba Satellite Windows 7

Intel Core i5 M 430 @ 2.27 GHz

4 gigs ram

64 bit OS

1gig nVidea 330gt gforce card

Thanks. Any help is appreciated.

EDIT: Another reason I can think of is that maybe windows 7 isn't compatible with nvidea drivers?

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

Below is a link to the Nvidia automated driver web page, there is a green download tab called download on this page click it and allow the ActiveX plug in to download and intall, this will locate the correct driver for your laptop and allow you to either download and save or download and install.


Good luck and hope this installs the correct Windows 7 64 Bit driver.
