Every 5-10 minutes my screen turns black, sort of flashes a bit, and then comes back on in different colours and the windows are all different sizes, but then it changes a bit and goes back to normal. Then I get a balloon message from the task bar saying "Display driver Intel Graphics Accelerator Driver for Windows Vista® stopped responding and has successfully recovered." (screenshot below) For some reason it says "for Windows Vista® but I am on Windows 7...
When it has come back to normal again, Chrome goes all funny and the tabs won't switch. So if I try to switch tabs, the top thing is on the tab that I have switched to, but the main screen below stays on what the previous tab was. Also, sometimes the tab becomes unresponsive and I have to either restart Chrome or refresh the tab.
I know I probably have to update a driver or something but I'm not sure which one so please help.

Post the make and exact model # of your computer please .
sounds to me like you need to get the up to date Video device for win7 ,if you upgrade from vist to seven did you check first to make sure you computer had drivers for win7 .

It's an Acer Aspire 4810TZG. Yeah, thing is I'm not sure where to find it. The computer was already on win 7 when I bought it so I didn't have to upgrade from vista.

Hi, I did it once and it failed to update the driver so I tried it again today and closed all the other programs that I had running and it worked this time. I'm yet to have another black screen and message so I think it worked - thanks! I'll let you know if I need more help.

Thanks, and thanks a lot for your help.
This might be a separate issue, but I have some games on my computer that don't seem to be working. If I click on the shortcut on my desktop, I can see from the Task Manager that the process starts, but nothing actually happens, and the process randomly stops again. Any ideas about that or should I ask somewhere else?

Hi everyone, my name is Byron and I've got a problem almost identical to the OP's. I wasn't sure if a new thread or a bump to this particular one would be preferred but I eventually went with the latter option; I hope that's fine.

Anyhow, this is my speccy analysis. http://speccy.piriform.com/results/SjBT4E8gTcJWjdnVIzNiwr6

My computer is a Dell Inspiron 1545. Thanks a lot for the help. Cheers.
