Hi KIRByy,

I will suggest that you update your driver. To do this just got to my computer and right click.

Choose properties, and click on hardware.

Next click on device manager.

You will see a number of drivers listed, scroll down to the network adapters, click to expand.

You should see somewhere NVIDIA drivers- in the list.

Right click on it and then choose to update online.

Make sure that you are connected to the internet.

Hope this helps.

The error "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" can be due to the following:

1. Your display driver needs to be updated. 

2. There are multiple programs running in the background that can slow down your computer. 

3. There is an issue with the GPU. It may be taking too much time than the allotted time to display graphics on your monitor.

4. Your video card is old and may not be compatible with your operating system.

To fix this issue:

1. Increase the Graphics Processing Unit or the GPU processing time. Try to modify the Timeout Detection and the Recovery which is a feature from Windows that can trace when the video adapter hardware or the driver in your computer is taking too much time than expected to complete the process. If this is the case, Windows needs to recover and reset the graphics hardware. And then, if the GPU was unable to do the recovery and reset in the allotted time of 2 seconds, your computer will become unresponsive and will show the error you've got. So you need to give the Timeout Detection and the Recovery feature extra time to perform the operation by modifying the registry value. You will need to backup your system before proceeding with this process.

2. Install the latest updates on your display driver. Set the Windows Update to automatic to download and install the updates automatically.

3. Search for other possible issues with the visual effects or programs running in the background.  Close any programs and windows that are not in use. Disable visual effects by opening the Performance Information Tools. Click Start and go to Control Panel. Type Performance and Information Tools on the  search field and click it. And then, click the Adjust Visual Effects option. Type your Admin password if prompted. Under the Visual Effects tab, click the Adjust for best performance option and then click OK.
