Graphic Cards :: Display Driver Stopped Responding And Has Recovered - Shows Wrong Drive
Aug 7, 2015
Since upgrading to Windows 10 from 8.1, I've seen the following message several times.
Display Driver stopped responding and has recovered
Display driver Intel HD Graphics Drivers for Windows 8(R) stopped responding and has successfully recovered.
When it happens, my laptop screen goes black for a few seconds, except for the taskbar and toast notification. I also have an external monitor that doesn't seem affected at all.
I can reproduce the error pretty consistently if I rapidly switch a Flash video back and forth between full-screen and embedded, but that's not the only time I've seen the problem.
As far as I can tell, everything continues running. Even the full-screen video continues running after the screen isn't black any more.
The weird thing is that the driver name it shows isn't the driver I'm using. I've already upgraded my display drivers to the latest available from Intel's site.
Some things I've observed:
The information presented by Windows in Settings -> Display -> Advanced display settings shows the driver for Windows 10 that I downloaded from Intel.The "Intel HD Graphics Control Center" that was installed along with the driver shows the latest driver version that I downloaded from Intel.In Settings -> Apps & Features there's only one "Intel(R) Processor Graphics Driver" listed.Event viewer shows very little useful information:
Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.Details (XML View):
- <Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">
<Provider Name="Display" />
It's conceivable that Intel updated the driver, but forgot to change the string somewhere so the error is actually for the Windows 10 driver. I don't know how to find out exactly what failed or why. It's getting that string from somewhere.
I'm having this frequent problem with my desktop computer. Since updating from Windows 7 to Windows 10, every time I use my PC (at random times) the whole screen will just go blank and I'll get a little message popup in the right hand corner saying.
Display driver stopped responding and has recovered Display driver AMD driver stopped responding and has successfully recovered.
I don't use my PC for anything real heavy it just randomly happens.. From either scrolling up and down a website page or watching a YouTube video etc... I've tried upgrading my graphics driver but still no luck.
Computer type: PC/Desktop System Manufacturer/Model Number: DELL INSPIRON ONE OS: Windows 10 CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 240 Motherboard: Dell 0DPRF9 Memory: DDR 3 4GB Graphics Card(s): AMD Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series
As of recently my graphics card driver has stopped responding at times and eventually recovers with windows coming with the usual pop up something along the lines of: "Your Graphics Card Driver Stopped Unexpectedly and has now recovered"
I have the latest Graphics Card Driver for my Graphics Chip on my AMD A6-5200 APU (AMD Radeon 8400)
This has happened twice so far and nothing like it has ever happened before. My thoughts lead me to believe that it could possibly be a bug in the driver or a corrupt installation or otherwise to do with the current driver version I have. However it has happened once while I was burning a linux distrobution to a disk and once while I was playing a game.
Had another account on the windows 8 forums for a while, thought I could log in to the windows 10 forums with the same account but apparently not, so I created another one with the same name
I just upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and now my computer only detects one display rather than two. I have a Dell desktop computer and two Dell monitors. Using Windows 7 both monitors were being detected/used. How to correct. The second display shows a black screen with the message "Cannot Display This Video Mode".
My display driver kept Crashing my Computer, so I updated it with the latest driver for Windows 10.
Now I keep getting a message to say that 'Scene Selection Has Changed' which annoyingly keeps on popping up on the Screen at regular intervals. (How can I stop this before it drives me Crazy!) too late it already has!
Then I get another 'Pop Up' which says 'Display Driver Stopped Responding but has now recovered' and is something else that I don't need to know (or maybe I do?)
If that message pops up a couple of times, it Crashes the Computer which then re-boots itself (sometimes!) or else gives me a 'Black Screen'
My Nvidea Graphics Card is virtually brand new and always worked faultlessly with XP and Windows 7.
Could it be the Updates we keep getting or something else?
I've been having this issue for almost a month now and nothing I have done has managed to fix the issue. Randomly I will get this error message:
After a few of these error messages it will eventually BSOD or freeze as seen here:
I will get both of these by doing pretty much any task on the computer, whether it be watching a video, browsing a site or even just sat at the desktop. However extremely interesting is the fact that this error will not appear in any form whilst playing games on the computer. It will not error or BSOD or anything. But doing any other task will do so, even if i have 1 program running on my entire PC.
Things I have tried so far: Updating drivers Uninstalling/reinstalling drivers Installing beta drivers Using 'Display Driver Uninstaller' to clear drivers Cleaned out the PC of all dust present Took out and reseated graphics card from motherboard Put my 2 RAM sticks into different slots on the motherboard Unplugging my 2nd monitor so I am only using one Adding a TDR delay to my registry Full virus scan Updating my BIOS software
The only things I have not tried is swapping out hardware components as I am unsure if it is a hardware issue or a software issue as of yet.
I've noticed that the BSOD and errors become more common the longer the PC is left on. For example last night it was blue screening every 5 minutes of being active.
The error does not seem to continue whilst in safe mode as last night i spent a long time in 'Safe Mode Networking' in order to look up possible fixes. I am not sure if it does not continue because of drivers not being in use or because the quality is much lower than normal.
I get this error on a Surface Pro 3 which I have updated to Windows 10. It normally occurs when playing Minecraft, anywhere from 5 minutes to 1 hour after opening. I have attempted to update the drivers, but it says that the drivers are up to date (which is odd as I am using Windows 8 drivers on a Windows 10 machine).
This has only started happening recently - every few boots, the screen choice between Windows 10 and XP appears with the wrong resolution. The image is small on the screen. If I select Windows 10, the full boot sequence continues with that resolution. However, if I select 'Advanced options' and then 'Continue to Windows 10', the resolution changes to the correct format.
A week or so back, I went back to a previous set point and that seemed to cure the problem. Then it returned.
So I recently had to reinstall Windows 10 to resolve an issue I was having, so my Nvidia drivers were deleted in that process. When I went to turn my computer back on after i was finished, there was no display on the screen so I took out my GPU and plugged the VGA into the integrated graphics and it worked fine. This just made me think I have to install the Nvidia drivers again but then I found out that you need the GPU in your computer to install the drivers, but My display won't work anymore with the GPU inside and no drivers for it.
So I bought a new monitor, the MG279Q and tried plugging it in to my PC via displayport, the monitor comes with a DP->miniDP cable, (from GTX780 DP to monitors miniDP) and the monitor gives no signal. However the computer does recognize the monitor and for example gives the sound alarm for new device attached. I can also see the device describes as "Generic pnp monitor" and I can see it in the Windows's own control panel for monitor + the nvidia control panel (pics in the end). But it won't allow me to set the monitor to use..
I suspected that the cable might be broken so I tested it with my UX32LN (GeForce 840M) laptop which has a miniDP. I plugged it to the monitor (from laptops miniDP to monitors normal DP, the monitor has both DP and mDP) and wow, image straight away. So the cable should be fine I guess.. But this is somewhat of an different situation as I use different port in the monitor compared to my desktops GTX780. And I don't have other computers or gadgets that I could use to test the monitors miniDP port.
Next I plugged in the monitor via HDMI to my desktop and that worked just fine. It recognizes the monitor without problems. Using my old XL2411Z monitor with DVI + MG279Q with DP or the MG279Q with HDMI+DP at the same time I can see the MG279Q being connected twice but it only chooses the HDMI connection and doesn't let me change it to DP even though it shows the connection.
Here are some pics to explain it better:
Multiple panel settings window. It shows the MG279Q on the top (under GTX780 the one not clicked) but it won't let me click it to use. Sometimes it lets me tick it for a second but instantly ticks the box off. The monitor nro 2 is the MG279Q via HDMI.
Surround+PhysX window shows that I've connected the monitor via DP but it is greyed out. It also won't let me make a surround set with the Xl2411z + mg279q DP.
Changing resolution settings only displays the HDMI connected monitor.
So I tried uninstalling the Nvidia drivers + freshly installing them, did not work at all. Neither did uninstalling the generic pnp monitor so the computer would reinstall the displays drivers. I also freshly installed from Win7 Pro -> Win 10 Pro and no difference (was intended to do that later on anyway so I thought that I might check, my laptop is running Win10 and it's DP worked after all). I also went to BIOS and checked that iGPU is disabled + monitor setting is set to PCIE instead of auto, no use. I would also test the GTX780's DP on other desktop computer but I can't. Anyway I'm somewhat suspecting a software/hardware compatibility issue as the monitor is being recognized. Doubt the fact that the monitors miniDP or my graphics cards DP port is broken..
What should I do or try? I really want to run the monitor via DP so I can utilize the 144Hz refresh rate.
Since updating to Windows 10 I have a display settings issue. I set my display setting to 1920x1080 (recommended) apply and check 'keep settings'. When I shut down and restart the display has changed to 1366x768. Happens every time I restart.
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 seriesAMD Radeon HD 6300M series
For one; the ATI Mobility card there are no drivers installed for this device. Ive been on the AMD website, where I downloaded an old legacy catalyst suite, built for windows vista/7. after that there are still no drivers installed for this card.
For the AMD Radeon; I'm getting a "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"
I'm starting to believe the problems for the 6300M card is coming from the 4200 card not having any drivers.
I've uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers for the 6300 card, and can only get the code 43 to go away if I disable and then re-enable it through the Device Manager. After a restart though, the problem persists.
when i connect a dvi or hdmi from my gtx 780 to my acer H274HL Monitor all works fine but when i want to connect display port cable on my gtx 780 and the other side is hdmi that goes to my monitor than there is no signal at all.
i am running windows 10 64 bit enterprise and all drivers are up to date also windows updates are up to date.
whenever I try to install the AMD drivers either via running the installer or auto detect, in the end I'm getting a message saying files did not install and to check the log file. I've got an Asus r9 280x. Control panel says "microsoft basic display adapter" under display adapters.
My graphics driver crashes very often, followed by a message saying that the graphics driver has crashed and recovered. This never happened before upgrading to Windows 10. It happens most often when I'm playing Hearthstone, but also occasionally elsewhere. Today my computer itself crashed due to this for the first time, giving me an error message that I don't remember. When I'm playing Hearthstone, it sometimes happens every 5 seconds or so, being frozen for about 5-10 seconds. My computer prompted me to upgrade to Windows 10, saying it was compatible, so I don't understand why this is happening.
Operating System: Windows 10 Home 64-bit
Microprocessor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4200M CPU @ 2.50GHz
I upgraded both my desktop and laptop to Windows 10 recently. The desktop's upgrade went smoothly; NVIDIA already has Windows 10-compatible drivers. However, my laptop with Intel HD Graphics is a different story. I've tried the Dell-certified drivers as well as the latest ones directly from Intel, and neither work.
When I attempt to install the driver, I get an error message stating "This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software."
I have windows 10 x64, and when i watch on YouTube my pc do some freeze with buzzing sound for 2 seconds, this process is repeated after 2 hours approximately, sometimes my AMD client do some crash, when this happened my pc work fine without crashes. I can do something ? I don't want to close AMD host application.
Surfing the web like normal with Photoshop in the background (not doing anything on it yet)Monitor goes dark blue/green and returns to normal saying Photoshop has stopped working, and saying in the bottom right corner that the driver had failed and then recovered.
