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.October 22, 2015 1:32 pm at 1:32 pm #1106756Little FroggieParticipant
If you can read this… then your computer is OK!!October 22, 2015 1:37 pm at 1:37 pm #1106757flatbusherParticipant
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.October 22, 2015 5:20 pm at 5:20 pm #1106758Shopping613 🌠Participant

Fixing computers can also be simple, easy and cheap. It all depends on what the problem is.October 22, 2015 6:27 pm at 6:27 pm #1106762screwdriverdelightParticipant
google “display driver stopped responding and has since recovered” and follow their instructions.
I’ll send you a bill in the mail.October 23, 2015 6:53 am at 6:53 am #1106763YW Moderator-42Moderator
Where did Dr. Needed get his/her doctorate?October 23, 2015 2:19 pm at 2:19 pm #1106764One LinerMember
He didn’t and that’s just proof that college is not necessary.October 26, 2015 8:31 am at 8:31 am #1106765
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.October 26, 2015 8:39 am at 8:39 am #1106766
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”????October 26, 2015 8:45 am at 8:45 am #1106767
Flatbusher: I actually started looking at new computers, are you trying to say ‘refurbished’ are no good? Do you have any experience?October 26, 2015 8:47 am at 8:47 am #1106768
