NVidia 179.48 Display Driver stopped and responding and has recovered
Please help me with this issue, i have had it now for the past year.
I have a Lenovo 3000 N200 0769 which originally came with Vista. I now have Windows 7 Ultimate.
i am constantly getting the display driver crashing, the screen going blank, and then recovering again (See attached picture)
Can anyone help me??

Thankyou!

Ummm....maybe try updating your drivers since those are over three years old! See this link for how to do it: [url="http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=169555"]Link[/url]

Edit:

You might be able to get away with just downloading the drivers and installing them. I linked you to the old method though since your drivers are so old. Wasn't sure the new installer would know to remove them. If you want to try that method just go here and find your drivers:[url="http://www.geforce.com/#/Drivers/Beta"]Link[/url]

The problem is, when i put in all my laptops details, the correct geforce, go, etc etc it all still comes back as that driver, and says that is the latest one for my machine??

I'm sorry, that's my fault for not asking for more details. Try a clean install of that driver using the method in the first link in my earlier post. Also not sure this particular area of the forum is best suited for this discussion since this seems to pretty squarely be a driver issue from what we've got so far...
