    Sorry, not understanding the error message: "the display driver is ? ? ?"

    Does it boot into windows? What type of PC is this? What type of video card? Have you installed any new video drivers recently?

    In your first post you noted that the Caps lock light did not work when it crashed.

    That is a sure sign that the computer itself is not running, just because you can hear the fans etc going means little.

    Perhaps you are blaming the video when its actually the computer CPU, motherboard, power supply or multiple other devices that could be the problem?
