Default Help! Video card failed to initilize

I don't know what happened i was playing a game and the game started glitching up so i hit ctrl alt delete to see what it could have been it was a error message saying that my video card something or another failed to initilize. Now the screen is like really big. It's really weird. I'm downloading the driver now. So thanks

Its okay
It was probably the driver resetting itself (it tries to do this instead of making the PC crash along with it when the card notices a problem)
