The reason I checked is I got a strange error while playing a game tonight. The game dropped to the desktop and there was an info box down by the system tray that said something about the display driver failed and has recovered. After the second time I checked for a new driver.

I get that error quite a lot in Photoshop CS5 when OpenGL is turned on, I never had it with that program, until I upgraded to 258.96. Unfortunately while it does keep the system from crashing, Photoshop becomes unusable and must be forced closed. I do appreciate the ability of Vista/7 to keep the system from crashing when that happens.
