    Seen it happen if another program overwrites the video drivers such as a game changing resolutions on the fly. Also seen weird problems happen if there is a bad spot on your hard drive.
    Have you run a chkdsk lately.

    No, will do that. Anyhow, it turned out to be an ok thing. There were updates to the driver anyway.
