This problem has been recurring daily for years now. It seems wide spread for multitudes of users. No fix I can find has worked from registry changes, driver changes, card changes, .... I've seen numerous posts on many support sites with varied methods for an attempted fix. All have been futile. Can this be fixed?
Driver has stopped responding and recovered. In any type of usage: online, gaming, any program, machine just sitting here doing nothing. Often I've got multi-colored boxes appearing all over the screen. Sometimes my monitor just shuts down and can't be turned on to a desktop again but for a total reboot. Mostly it just freezes, goes black then recovers.
My machine is internally clean & runs cool always. I have nothing overclocked. It is tight & lean as far as programs & files are concerned. I rarely stress the vid card for any type of gaming. Actually can't play games due to this problem. Tried every driver from 10.x to 13.1 to no avail. (Installed correctly.) Bios and updates/drivers for all hardware & software in place. No conflicts or other discernable problems.
Please advise. Utmost frustration. Thank you.
