Event ID 4101: Display Driver Stopped Working? www.sevenforums.com

Every once in awhile my screen freezes, goes to black, and then recovers with a message that the display driver stopped working and has successfully recovered. I checked the event viewer and the Event ID is 4101. In the details it says "Display Diver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered." My computer is a Sony Vaio VPCCW17FX and my display driver is a GR Force G210 M. This started happening after I downloaded an update from VAIO Update awhile back.

Sony :: CW Bestbuy forum.notebookreview.com

My girlfriend wants me to pick a laptop for her for school next year and I think I've decided on the Vaio CW series, but I'm a little confused about what I've heard. I understand that the CW's on Bestbuy.com have a higher resolution screen and the 330 graphics card, making it much better than the CW on the sonystyle website. Will Sony be updating their CW series soon to match Bestbuy's?

Video Driver Stopped Responding www.sevenforums.com

I recently upgraded to windows 7 from vista to try and solve an issue I have with my video drivers crashing whenever i do something graphically intensive.I opened up a thread on the vista forums here: Video Drivers Crashing - Vista Forums.But it doesn't seem that anyone can help me. I tried all of the basic troubleshooting steps, and have updated all the drivers on my system.The problem I am having is that I upgraded my graphics card recently to an Nvidia 430GT. I have done numerous checks (RAM, CPU, power supply, updated every driver on my system, etc.), and have had the graphics card replaced, but am still receiving the same issue. When I load up video games I will receive the message "Driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has recovered" at random intervals.Sometimes my system will completely freeze because the drivers won't recover. I contacted nvidia about the drivers and they had me try out a few driver versions (which i had already done), before telling me to get the graphics card replaced.

Sony :: Cs11s And Windows 7 forum.notebookreview.com

I've installed windows 7 on my girl's notebook and i've got some problems: 1) this version of sony got a sensor touch bar in the top of the keyboard. It is not working (buttons ain't lightening at all..) 2) fn + brightness control is not working as well (i reinstalled all the vaio control center in the right order and all others fn keys are working) 3) nvidia drivers suggested from sony just crash every 5 minutes (the driver has stopped working and has been recovered), though the 190.38 driver that windows installed in the first installation works good. So.. this was from a clean installation, even though I have to admit I may have messed up with drivers since there was no official windows 7 driver yet released from sony. I've read that new bios should fix brightness issues, but the sony support gives a broken link to the new bios and i do not know where to dl it.

Sony :: Vaio Laptop Driver- With Windows 7 forum.notebookreview.com

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FS93S laptop. It is about 4-5 years old. I bought it in Thailand so I think it is a Sony Asian region model. I installed Windows 7 on it today without any problems. It runs fine, but I am having some driver problems as expected. Even though there are a couple of red lights in the Device Manager, all my hardware is working fine except for the wireless network card. I don�t mind the errors in the Device Manager as long as everything works somehow. But I also can�t get the function keys working on the laptop, which I would like to have working too. I called Sony in Thailand and they said the laptop is too old so Sony won�t be supporting it with new drivers for Windows 7. Are there any Windows 7 drivers from other Vaio models which might be compatible with my laptop?

Realtek High Definition Audio Causing Video / Audio Stuttering www.tomshardware.com

Starting about a month ago, after six to seven months of my laptop working fine, I've been getting video and audio stuttering whenever gaming or watching most HD videos and after messing around with my drivers I realized that whenever my Realtek HD Audio drivers are disabled my video runs flawlessly, but when enabled both video and audio stutter. I'm using a Sony VAIO laptop so I'm assuming that the sound card isn't easily replaceable. I've tried using the newest drivers straight from Realtek's website and also the outdated driver provided by Sony's website, both of which result in the same stuttering. Sony has also replaced the motherboard once and it did not resolve the issue.I'm currently running Windows 7 with 6gb of RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce 330M graphics card.

DDR3 RAM on the CW should also be quicker and consume less power than DDR2 on the FW. I have no idea which of the graphics options is better - NVIDIA on the CW or ATI on the FW. The FW seems to have better screen and sound for movie watching. I could also consider stretching the budget up and get a full HD version of the FW but is this really worth it in your opinion - I'm not sure how big a difference the 1920x1080 screen will make vs the 1600x900?

SQL Server 2005 Studio Crashing Laptop (BSD) www.sqlteam.com

I just recently replaced my old HP laptop with a Sony VAIO. I installed all of my development software on it, including SQL Server 2005 and the studio. At some point when I am using the studio on this new laptop, if I try to resize any of the columns to better fit the data, it crashes my laptop. I get the infamous Blue Screen of Death. The laptop is a Sony Vaio BX670P and it has Win XP SP2 with all of the latest and greatest updates loaded on it. The BSD blames a driver for causing the crash and points out "win32k.exe" specifically. This has never happened to me before. Does anyone know why this might be happening? - - - - - Will - - - - - http://www.strohlsitedesign.com
