I've been having this error pop up "Display driver has stopped working and recovered" which normals involves my game or screen freezing for a second or two and then resuming as normal. This problem was happening when I was using my 8800gt and i decided to get a new video card thinking something might be wrong with that one... I bought a new 6950 and after a day and a half this error happens again. I have the current drivers for my card and the past ones removed. Sometimes the screen stops without even the error coming up. This is really annoying and ive looked everywhere and haven't found anything helpful. Also this happens in games and out. I've monitored my temperatures using HWMonitor and they are fine.

Unfortunately there is really no know fix for this issue.
Usually re-installing windows will fix it.
Yea, it seems to happen with AMD cards for some unknown reason.
