display device problem

  nogga 18:24 23 Jan 2004

Every so often I get the following error message when using IE or from a link in OE.
"The driver for the display device was unable to complete a drawing operation. Please check with the device manufacturer for a driver update.
I do not have this problem when using the computer for other applications, even when I am working with digital video. I have a NVIDIA GFORCE graphics card with 64MB.

which version of windows? Try under Control Panel -> Display -> Hardware, reduce h/ware acceleration until the problem is eliminated. I would also make sure all drivers are 100% up-to-date, as well as your DirectX installation.
