    Try rolling back your video card driver if you’re having issues:


    Dont work


    Try installing the last video card driver.

    First check windows update in the control panel for a new driver to try.

    If that doesn’t help, post the make and model of your video card.


    My video card is NVIDIA Geforce 9650M GT it dossen´t work


    Download and install the latest driver for your video card from (Select GeForce 9M Series)


    It´s not better. it just says screendriver NVIDIA Windows kernel mode, version 197.16 has stopped working but is now back


    Are you running Windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit?


    There are many complains of people have the same issue with the 197 version of the nVidia drivers. Use the nVidia advanced search and locate an older version of the driver.

    Try 195.62 or 186.81




    I have treid them before it´s just the same.


    What is the make and model of your laptop, and how long have you owned it?


    I have owned in 1 year and a month it is a ASUS X71Vn


    My only suggestion is to try Vista 32bit drivers as well, and keep working backward til you find on that works. There are a lot of people with this problem, but they are all short on solutions.

    For additional opinions try the following:


    How do i do that??


    Use the advanced search like you did before: to find and download old driver versions.
