Hi. Starting from today, my monitor frequently gives me a black screen briefly, and after that, I get a notification that says something like "display driver stopped responding and has recovered". This usually happens when I'm playing a graphics-intensive game, though sometimes even opening a picture file can trigger this. My OS is Windows 7 32-bit.
Can anybody help me fix this issue? Thanks.

You need to provide information about your computer, this includes is it
a laptop or desktop, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP
and if it is provide the model name or series number, motherboard and any
add on card details would also help others to help you better.

I updated my graphics driver. I'm going to see if the problem persists.
