I thought it was this for months as i switched from a Nvidia card to an ATI Radeon HD card and i used to get a lot of errors saying “Display driver stopped responding and has recovered”
, the PC never shut down though.
I think a lot of people had similar issues and neither ATI, Nvidia or Microsoft were sure what the problem was.
After a lot of research and driver updates i thought it was finally resolved. Maybe not.
I actually paid for program at the weekend that checks and updates all drivers so hope it isn't that.

A can of compressed air is on my shopping list as a few sites have suggested this.

As above, changed from Nvidia to ATI.
Was this my first mistake?
