Hi there! I would like to seek some advise on a problem I am encountering with my display driver. Intermittently, the display driver will suddenly have an error and will cause the display settings to change to the lowest res 640 x 480. And sometimes will cause the PC to hang. So in both case, will need to be rebooted. I cant see any pattern as it does not happen regularly and not always on the same application that I am using. My PC is abt 2+ yrs old and this only started happening a couple of months ago. I tried to re-install the display driver (default installed by Windows XP) and still happens. Also tried to change to use the latest driver for my graphics card from NVIDIA website but it still happens. Here is my 2+yr old PC specs:
Acer Pentium 4, 2.4ghz
XP home ed.
NVIDIA GeForce4 MX-440 graphics card, 64MB
set to 32 bit, 1024 x 768
From Windows website, this card is in windows hardware compatibility list, so should not be a problem.
Is there anything else I need to check? Or could it be my graphics card is already spoiled? But i also did the graphics card tests (3d), i think from the nvidia software, and all passed.
Pls advise. Thanks a lot!
