    My computer seems to be very sick. My screen turns black and after some time “wakes up” with a small message saying “display driver stopped responding and has since recovered”. When that happens the computer continues to operate properly but there is nothing on the screen. It can turn blank for as little as 3 seconds or sometimes hrs. This is a second hand computer. = I did not pay for it.

    What’s the diagnosis? computer seizures?

    How do you treat this? obviously i don’t know where is a computer hospital. Even if i would, it is not included in Obamacare bill so it doesn’t have insurance.

    I learned a long time ago, used electronics aren’t worth it. It;’s like buying a used car; you really don’t know the history. Fixing the computer can be expensive; you probably can get a new one for about as much as fixing this one.

    He said he didn’t pay for it.

    Fixing computers can also be simple, easy and cheap. It all depends on what the problem is.

    google “display driver stopped responding and has since recovered” and follow their instructions.

    I’ll send you a bill in the mail.

    Where did Dr. Needed get his/her doctorate?

    He didn’t and that’s just proof that college is not necessary.

    Thanx to all!

    LF: You’re right! But only temporarily. I guess i should change that diagnosis to by polar/ moody. If i can read it it’s o.k. but few seconds later it might not be.

    SDD: Thanx! If it lasts, your advice was helpful and i’d be happy to pay the bill – provided it does not cost more than 1/2 a new computer.

    Should i google “bills sent by mail”????

    Flatbusher: I actually started looking at new computers, are you trying to say ‘refurbished’ are no good? Do you have any experience?
