For a few weeks, I have been using a new laptop without issue. Then a couple of days ago, I began getting this message after my screen went blank in the middle of some command. I saw similar posts in the EAP forum. I tried installing the newest driver and that resulted in spider web-like graphics displays so I rolled back a few versions. The original version was more than a few years old and had been working fine. So, the bottom line is that a newer, just not newest driver did not fix the problem.
Any thoughts on best fix for this?

If you have tried the latest driver I would recommend the suggestion made here: http://communities.bentley.com/products/microstation/w/microstation__wiki/4172: This problem only occurs when MicroStation is using DirectX 11 (new with MicroStation V8i SELECTseries 3). DirectX 11 is automatically used on hardware that is capable of running it. However, the user can force MicroStation to use the older DirectX 9 interface by setting a MicroStation configuration variable. Setting QV_D3DVERSION to a value of 9 (in the environment variables of Windows) will force MicroStation to use the DirectX 9 interface, starting with the next execution of MicroStation. This will avoid TDRs, but can also update slower than when using DirectX 11, particularly on complex display styles such as Illustration. TFS#129159 has been file on this issue as this is an issue Bentley has been in contact with NVidia.
