The NVIDIA Display Driver Service service terminated unexpectedly.  It has done this 1 time(s).  The following corrective action will be taken in 0 milliseconds: No action.

my computer keeps restarting, and it dosent give me any error, just restarts at random intervals. i fear its about to do it again so i must be quick!
It started happening a month back, so i formatted and reinstalled my os. same problem. ive tried different drivers, to no avail. the drivers im using currently are the latest 66.93. ive tried the forceware ones too. same problem.
the error message above was taken from the event log thingy majiggy Cheesy
its really annoying me., as even when its not restarting , it crashes my games mid play.
i have tried swapping the ram out, changing bios settings, disabling the error freak out and restart function, taking out the soundcard... all to no avail. i have no other graphics card, and computer is no more than a few months old so i hope i wont have to buy any more components. ive also swapped round ide cables.
I cant install windows xp (another problem) because it blue screens with a random error every time i try. anyways, please help Cheesy
thanks in advance.
ps. my power supply is a 400 W, so its more than adequate

Hi Donal,

Was the computer a custom build or did you buy it from somewhere? Did it ever work or has the problem been there since the start?
