    Sometimes I get this message :


    for no reason.
    I am let's say on TSR, then the screen becomes black for 10 seconds and then as if nothing happened

    How can I fix this?

    Update your graphics driver. Looks like you're using a laptop, so check the manufacturer's page first, otherwise drivers can be got here.

    What do you mean by check the manufacturer's page?
    And what is Nvidia used for?
    Do I have to uninstall the actual driver and then re-install it ??
    Thanks a LOT

    Nvidia make graphics cards, one of which is in your computer. They also produce the drivers for their graphics cards, but laptop manufacturers (eg dell/hp etc) often customise the drivers for their particular hardware and nvidia's generic ones don't work with some laptops. If the laptop manufacturer has an up to date driver on their website use that. It's a good idea to uninstall the current driver first, though not essential.
