Greetings, Occasionally the display on my Acer 6930 laptop goes off and then after a few seconds comes back to normal.This may happen once in a session.When it recovers there is a message at the bottom of the screen which says something along the lines of"nvlddmkm driver display has stopped working and recovered".After that everything is as per normal.Graphics card in the laptop is a Geeforce 9300m gs.Presume the drivers need updating?If so can someone explain how to do that please.Many thanks.

I'd suggest you got Nvidia's site here and do the auto update.

Perhaps well off subject, but the graphics card hasn't suffered a jolt recently, so its not seating correctly?.

Spuds-Laptop hadn,t been dropped or bumped to my knowledge. MechKB2,onthelimit1 I took your advice and have successfully updated the drivers.So far I,ve not had any further problems.Everything seems to be as normal.Many thanks for your replies.
