What is the main cause for screws popping in drywall?
What can be done to lessen the possibility of this happening?

Thanks

Sorry

I ment after they are painted. What makes the plaster fall off the screw head a year or two later?

Is it the same thing?

As lumber contracts and expands with temp and humidity changes, or if it is new construction and the wood was not completely dried before screwing or nailing the drywall, the associated forces from contraction and expansion can cause pops.
