    Ever since it was new my Qosmio display glitched randomly after start up.
    I returned it to Toshiba here in Adelaide but as every Tech nows "random faults NEVER appear on the work Bench ( I have been a techie for 40 years ),
    I have tried the driver updates but no change except to say it has become less noticeable.
    The unit is about 2yrs old now.
    The message " Display driver stopped working but has recovered ), is this a known Toshie fault ?.

    Cheers Graham

    The video card might have come loose. The only problem is, you'd have to disassemble most of the laptop to get to the GTX 460M card.

    Also, the heatsink compound Toshiba used might be getting brittle due to the heat the card puts out.
