I get this error over 10 times a day: display driver stopped responding and has recovered. Display driver Intel HD Graphics Drivers for windows 8® stopped responding and has successfully recovered.
Usually this happens when using firefox and gives me a black firefox window. Usually I can hit F11 to go full screen and back to restore everything to functioning. However sometimes firefox locks up, and other times, without any error at all, my mouse gets slow and then the whole computer locks up requiring a hard reset.
Windows Home 10, x64.
Acer Aspire VN7-791G
8 GB Ram
Intel HD Graphics 4600
also Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M (but I don't think it is ever active)
My laptop is an I updated to windows 10 immediately when purchasing this laptop.
Apparently Acer has a "special" intel graphics driver, when I tried to update to the newest generic Intel driver I got the message that I have to use the driver Acer customized for my laptop, I can't use the OEM.
I would be grateful for any knowledgeable advice.
