    Please help me. I am at my wits end with this computer problem which doesn't seem to change no matter what I do. With no rhyme or reason, I get "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped working and has successfully recovered" constantly...if I am lucky, if not, then my computer just freezes and I have to turn it off and turn it back on. It just hangs and nothing will move/work. Or sometimes it even just turns itself off. Somedays I can't even do anything on it for more than 2 minutes straight w/o the screen going black, then recovering by itself and at others, I can work for a good 30 minutes w/no problems whatsoever. It doesn't matter if I'm searching the web or replying to emails. I need my computer to work all the time. I have tried to update vista service packs but that doesn't help. I updated my driver which is what my computer suggested and it still makes no difference. Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks so much.:)

    Restart and tap Function 8 to see the Advanced Boot Menu and select either Safe Mode with Networking or the lowest level graphics option available. Once logged in, the resolution will only be 600 x 800 or similar but you might be able to update the driver.
