Hi there! I recently ran a Microsoft "Problem Report" and I had like 21 problems! They all seem to be the same problem, so I was wondering what was going on with my PC.

It looks something like this

Problem: Video Hardware Error
Files that help describe the problem:

Each of the 21 errors say the same thing. I'll post my graphics card information too. I don't know much about computers, but I went to the Intel site and looked for an updated driver, and mine seems to be up to date. Not sure whats going on. I probably have a virus or something. Any information would be awesome! Thanks so much!

Your graphics driver has stopped working properly.

At this time, we don't know the exact cause of this problem. Hewlett-Packard is interested in gathering additional feedback.
