    I am trying to download an update that removes the "Driver has stopped
    working and Recovered" error but when I try to run the update (I have a
    Compaq T2080 Notebook with Windows Vista Home Premium) it says that it
    doesn't apply to my system. I downloaded the one for 32bit systems, so isn't
    that the right update? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hard to say without knowing which update you are trying to install. Go here
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/ph/11732 and enter the update
    number and it will explain the applicability of the update.

    For example, the error message you mention (or one similar) occurs on
    systems with nVidia graphics cards and older drivers. If you try to install
    this and don't have and nVidia card, it won't install.

    Sorry, it was the KB940105-x86 update.

    Check under installed updates to make sure it's not already installed. Also,
    not every update is for every system, many updates are specific to certain
    software/drivers and/or components.

    For installed update

    Control Panel > (left upper corner) View installed updates

    Check the list for KB940105 (FYI: didn't apply to my system either)
