Every minute or so my Dell PC freezes, then comes back and displays the message "display driver IGFXstopped responding and has successfully recovered". Sometimes the screen pixellates and " breaks up". Any ideas about a fix or is it time for a new PC?

It would have helped if you had advised of your OS and graphics card and what you are doing/playing when this occurs.

It could be that you have an incorrect refresh rate selected, you are low on memory or maybe a broken driver. Have a look at these posts and see if anything suggested helps. Vista problem HP solution MS solution
