My laptop after watching a video or video calling, the screen goes black and after a few seconds the computer shuts down, would a new graphic's card solve this problem, the time varies, some 1 said its a heat problem with NVIDIA drivers?

Ok make sure you are doing exactly like i say: (Make sure to select the M series version of drivers. Because if you don't obviously its going to give you a error)

Select Geforce in the top box
Slect Geforce ***M series in the second box (Note: What ever graphics chip you have be it from 200,300,400,500,600 series)
Then select the product drop down menu, and select the card model you have.
Select your operating system in the 2nd column, 1 drop down menu. then in the recommended/beta field you want "Recommended/certified"
The latest driver says 306.23

But try the driver: 301.42

If you still experience issues, please reply back with your model# of your laptop and the specifications sheet.

After the bs NVIDIA pulled who cares their a lost cause locking voltage on cards wow really let their ego get the best of them picking on MSI being control freaks they have lost their mind if they think people will put up with this especially when it's customer money they should be able to do whatever they want with their card whatever happened to break it that's your problem but the option is there at your own risk i will take my business else where and i suggest you do the same mate.

Wrong thread, dude. Interesting rant, though.

I recommend you contact a NVIDIA support technician over at the Geforce forums. But before you do, try this website: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/support-drivers.html

Also a spec sheet is a list of specifications about your laptop such as what processor you have and what memory you have and such. It helps us identify your laptop so we can look into any other conflicts people have been known to have with your specific model.
