Still having some display problems a couple of weeks after receiving the message "Display driver has stopped responding', along with "Could not find any compatible Direct 3D devices".

I refreshed the Intel driver via a link that Bleeping located for me. I've not had any more occurrences like what I described above except that now, I can't even read part of the words on some websites...they are teensy and blurry. Other parts of the same screen are just fine. Here's a link to an example....

Advice?

Has this adapter worked properly in the past?

Try add in Java script to ttest if it works,

Check your device manager on video adapter to see if it is working properly.

Update driver if necessary ( this should not be the cause of the problem)

I suspect you lack of plug ins.

2 Questions:

By teensy do you mean small?

Are you using internet explorer?

Wlking Man....were you able to open my link to the example? ("My Webpage")
Part of the text on that example is so blurry that I can't read it....and I don't know if that is because it is so teensy(yes, small) or that it's both small and blurry. Hopefully you can check out my example 'cuz I'm afraid I am not explaining it very well. I'm using Juno's integrated browser. And yes, the adapter has been working great, prior to the failures a couple of weeks ago...and they've been working fine ever since I updated the driver.

Whoa, Zener! I'm in trouble...this cluebie needs an interpretor to be able to do what you suggest:

"Try add in Java script to ttest if it works"
Tell me how, please?

Yes...it shows "working properly"...(Check your device manager on video adapter to see if it is working properly)

It might just be A simple search of your browsers settings and increasing the font view size. I know that internet explorer has conflicts with this, but I have never heard of your browser.

Your post didn't say whether you are using a flat panel monitor or not. If you are, one thing you really want to do is to make sure that "Clear Type" is set. To do this:
RClick any blank area on the desktop and select Properties.
From the Appearance tab click Effects.
Check "Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts", and
Select Clear type from the dropdown.

It will make all of the text on the screen look sharper and darker.

You can fine tune the Clear Type settings for your particular monitor by going to
Microsoft ClearType Tuner

It really helped me when I replaced my monitor.

You may also have the resolution set wrong and/or the size of the font in the browser set too small. Try increasing it to give you larger text size.

Java from Sun Microsystems may be downloaded here although I don't think that java is causing your problem but the java offered as freeware by Sun is better than what comes with Windows.
