recovered. It happens often and makes gameplay very difficult.

IHJ is right, you're video card is probably the problem, gotta update your
drivers from Intel.com, or stick a fan on the side of your computer (might
be over heating).

Blow out the dust from your system, check your fans, if it's a notebook take
it off the shag carpet. :)

Update your drivers first off. And the igfx, are you using the onboard video
on your motherboard? You may look into upgrading to a discrete graphics card
if your system is able.

omg im using a desktop hp and my computer freezes up every time i play
-WoW- (when someone uses a spell or too many ppl in one area and
recently just in cities even when far apart form ppl) -Civilization- or
-Wizard 101 -
If Vista says your display driver has stopped responding that could be
the driver itself is having problems (update it at intel.com), or your
actual video card chipset is failing, and Vista is stopping the video
driver (as well as any game running at the time) and telling you that
something bad happened.

It's either one, I would personally lean towards the later (video
hardware crash/failure) and go out and buy a new video card (the ATi 4770
is out now, it's under $100 and everyone seems to think it's, "The
shit"™)

Try updating the driver at intel.com, if that doesn't work I suggest
buying a new video card. (Geek Squad, of which I shill for,
installs/upgrades video cards for $49.99 + the cost of the card, and they
guarantee the work for 30 days, if you're not comfortable upgrading your
own shit, which some people aren't)

This happened a lot. Just update the driver and it should fix the issue.

Since it's a notebook, you should always use the one from HP..... HP may
purchase the system board and integrated graphics chipset from Intel but
it's specifically designed for that particular notebook and may not be the
same as any other Intel x1300 chipset.

To find out exactly what you have, you can use the HP AutoDetection
application.

Can you trick the notebook into installing the 2009 drivers by expanding the
file (use WinZip or WinRar).... then going into the Device Manager, clicking
on Display Driver, Update Driver and pointing it to the folder that contains
the files you just expanded... preferably point it at the *.inf file.

This does sometimes work.... and I've done it on notebooks that have the
irritating habit of not liking the graphics driver that I want to install
rather than the one that the notebook/Windows wants.
