Hi, I have an old HP M376N that is running Windows XP and was running fine, but I hardly updated XP. I got everything up to date yesterday but now I have a display problem.

After you leave the computer running for a while and wake up the monitor, the graphics display goes bad and gives me a psychedelic, safe mode look that's 4 bit. I then uninstall the graphic display and reinstall the recommended Nvidia display by XP and everything is fine until the same thing happens again.

What do I do to stop this from happening over & over again?

Do NOT update graphics & audio or network drivers from Microsoft.
Go to manufacturer to download & install the proper driver, then setup directx again.
Set Auto Update to Notify but do not download, then go to custom & select updates when needed.
