I am getting this error every now and then and sometimes it restarts itself with the blue screen error ....
Please can someone advice what can be done?

What Graphics card/chipset did it come with?
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330??
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD?

Did you try uninstalling the Display Adapter via Device Manager? Rescan for hardware changes or restart... it will boot to VGA default and try to detect and install a suitable driver.

On your laptop it must be written what Chipset is there like ATI Radeon or Intel Graphics. Just confirm that and download the required set of drivers by using appropriate filter from below URL:-
