while working with adobe after effects, the screen goes black and returns with the dialog message bellow "display driver crashed & succesfully returned"The programs shut down and I have to restart it.The situation continues very ofter while working with video footages. The problem persists from the the begining when I bought a laptop. System is windows 7 64-bit.

You can update the BIOS, Chipset and uninstall the video driver and then re-install the video driver in the system. Please use the link below to download the drivers.
Please connect the Ac Adapter while updating the BIOS and do not use the system once the update is initiated and until the system restarts completely
Please uninstall the existing video driver from the system using the program and features and re-install the video driver. Please follow the steps below.

And when updating BIOS, does it mean I will have to reinstall windows aswell?
Re-installation of windows is not required for a BIOS update.
