Screen goes blank then recovers right away and a message appears stating Nvidia has recovered from a problem. windows mail screen has obly half the information on screen and I have to close it and open it again.
That message can show up when a card has been physically damaged as well, like from heat and/or over-overclocking. Return it if you can. Even if the computer may return to normal working condition now, the same problem is most likely to come back soon.
New Samsung laptop?
Don't do anything except take it straight back and tell them you want one that works.
Why would anyone want to spend time and money trouble shooting a brand new product? Make them give you what you paid for!
