Exclamation Display driver 'is not working properly' help!

i was playing a game on my laptop when it froze and said the 'ialmrnt5 display driver is not working properly.' then something along the lines of 'save and reboot'. Ive installed speedfan to control and monitor, but it still happens after several reboots. Can some one help me?
i have a fujitsu Life book S-series with a Name Mobile Intel(R) 945GM Express Chipset Family card.
thanks

That happened to me the other day. I just re-booted and it worked fine after that.

Yes, of course you can change the drivers. It's just software, after all.

If it isn't working properly, it could probably be the Drivers. Try rolling back the drivers and see how that goes.

Maybe just try re-installing the current drivers, maybe they got corrupted somehow.

Also scan for viruses.
