I've put my cpu at stock settings underclocked my graphics card changed ram timings and this is a new set of sticks since i replaced them following someones post saying that that was their issue so gave it a try but apparently it isn't go in safe mode uninstall drivers run driver sweep reboot reinstall nothing problem persists and yes i do have the latest mobo/vid drivers.

[CPU] Intel? Core? i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz (8 CPUs), Overclocked~4.2GHz
[RAM] 6GB Corsair Dominator DDR3 1600 Triple channel
[MOBO] Asus Rampage II Extreme X58

I'm getting BSOD when trying to play games, or trying run 3DMark06.

I've gotten serveral of different error messages, depending on which drivers i've tried to update. Now I've updated the latest Nvidia graphic driver(from nvidia website), sound card driver and the newest BIOS from dell's website.

Hello,

I get the above error while playing games and watching videos. I have updated my drivers and set power management settings to prefer maximum performance, but it still persists. I've read that this is a problem plaguing many people as well as it being a solvable problem. Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome
Go to the nvidia driver download page. Use the automatic computer scan to find the most up to date drivers and download same.
If this does not help, go to search near the start button and type device manager.
Look at the display drivers, see any little red indicators, if you do the driver must be reinstalled it is corrupt.

Every now an then i get this error message: "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered".

IT just happens rarely, but randomly.
The screen would turn off and in a minute or so, it will turn back on.

More information about the event:

Description: Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered.

Already tried updating all my drivers.
Don't think my laptop is overheating.
The screen looks fine, nothing wrong with the adapter.

If you know the solution or possible solution, please inform me. Much appreciated!
Thanks.

SOLUTION:
If you still crash even after you updated your driver, then go to this website and download "Microsoft Fix It".
Change compatibility of the application to "Previous Version of Windows".

Hello everyone:
I have come across the message (from a video card failure) that says “Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered.”
I know people have this problem all the time; I have found a solution after a long period of time.
The solution is to do all of the following steps:
1. Uninstall all video drivers
2. Update your drivers to the latest version
3 Update your bios
4. Try different PCIe/PCI/AGP slots on your motherboard
5. Try different power rails coming from your power supply
-make sure your power supply can support your graphics card.
6. Update your version of Direct X
7. Update your chipset drivers
8. Go to your video card settings>advanced settings> and set everything to application controlled
9. Go to your video card settings>advanced manage 3D settings> and turn off vertical sync
10. make sure your card is not overheating
11. Memory can sometimes cause video problems, run a memtest
12.Check out these posts

Set 9 is what fixed my problem
If none of this works reinstall your OS and try all these steps again.

I hope this thread blooms and helps everyone out there having the same issue as me.

Just some key words: temporary black screen, driver crash, video card, drivers, problems, flicker.

Answer:Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding

Just an update, here are more things you can try:

13. Remove one monitor ( if you are using more than one)
14. Sometime realtek drive conflict with other drivers change any network realtek drivers
15. make sure your monitor is set at the proper refresh rate
16. Sometimes USB devices (specifically webcams) cause strange error. Remove them and uninstall the drivers and USB drivers. Microsoft did release an update for windows 7 to resolve this issue, but try it any way.
17. multi-display/Mixed GPU in Nvidia control panel = compatibility
18. multi-display/Mixed GPU = Single display performance mode
19. Check out system configuration>tools>System Information>Hardware>Conflicts/sharing
20. If Step 8/9 did not work try turning on triple buffering and vertical sync (force on).

This problem started for me a few days ago out of the blue. I hadn't recently installed any new programs or drivers. It began with just the screen freezing for a second and then returning to normal with the error message "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered." I was running an EVGA NVIDIA 8800GTS 640MB card at the time. Nothing on the computer is overclocked nor has it been. Then the next day the error started to happen more frequently so I upgraded the drivers to the most recent release 191.07 WHQL. After this I started to see a lot of screen artifacts and began to run some diagnostic tools like FurMark, each time I tried to run this it would eventually freeze up the OS, resulting in either a BSOD with nvlddmkm.sys (0x00000116) to blame or just freeze up the screen and never come back until a system reboot. All of the temperatures were always within operating ranges. I tried cleaning out the drivers and installing various releases, as well as pretty much every posted solution I could find, but nothing helped. Attached are some of the pictures of the artifacts I was seeing. I decided to contact EVGA who told me to RMA the card as it was under warranty. Since there were graphic problems in the BIOS they thought it had to be the card malfunctioning and not the drivers, etc.

Answer:Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding...

I am having a VERY VERY similar problem myself. A few days ago while playing a game i got an error saying n4v_disp has stopped working and my graphics became all pixilated like in your screenshots. I updated and reinstalled drivers, switched card slots on my mobo, tried everything possible related to the videocard but nothing worked. I am currently RMA'ing the card (9800 GT) and am using my spare 8600 GTS. For the first few days of using the replacement card things were fine now all of a sudden my games will freeze but i can pull up task manager and end them. Once i do my screen justs freezes and i have to reboot and i am now having random pixilation like in your screenshots. Not nearly as bad as my other card though. I couldnt even boot up anymore with the 9800.

The only things we have that are exactly the same are the Processor and Monitor.

There is a new beta driver out as of a few days ago, i will be trying this - NVIDIA DRIVERS 195.55

Hopefully we can help eachother and get some outside help!

During the first 4 days of my new W7 install I was getting constant "Display Driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has recovered" events (Event ID 4101 - Level 3 - Task 0 - 0x8000000000000). The best I can recall these events occurred when changing display settings. These events are occuring much less often now. The only instance in the past day or 2 was trying to start Autocad Lt 2010 (separate, bigger issue).

When I installed W7 it loaded the 186.18 driver. That driver folder still exits in C:\NVIDIA\Display Driver. I installed the latest nVidia driver - 195.62 - right after the motherboard drivers (second thing). The driver version in device manager is 8.17.11.9562. The option to roll back the driver is grayed out. There are no hardware conflicts.

Memtest and Prime95 tests are clean. I have 6GB of 1333 memory "overclocked" to 1333 in bios. This is because the i7-920 is a "fixed" processor and only defaults to 1066 memory.

Originally (day 1-2) the event occured when trying to switch to an aero theme. Today (day 5) I am using a modified aero theme and have no problems. Is it possible that W7 applied a bug fix transparently?

I have researched and there are many possible solutions offered. The most common is to to re-expand the nvlddmkm.sys file in System32. What do you folks here think/suggest I do?

Answer:Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding - HELP

Hello dpphoenix. Welcome to the forum.

Take a look at my post (#6) in this thread Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding...

Because these TDR errors can be caused by so many issues, it is vital to do the diagnostics to try and isolate the problem component.

You have already checked and could eliminate from the list: Motherboard, RAM, Video Card, Video driver. Now check and eliminate from the list the other items. That will leave you with the most likely problem issue.

Hope that helps.

Formatted my computer today and installed the latest drivers.

Now I get the error below at random times, screen goes black, then comes back on.
"Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered."

This didn't happen before I formatted.

Any ideas?
As this is a completely fresh install I'm not sure what could cause it.

Answer:Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding.

sometimes you just get a bad driver installation.
As a first quick step you can try just running the driver installer for your graphics again, you can track it down here. Drivers - GeForce
If a reinstall over what you already have doesn't clear it up you'll need to go the long way....

Do download a fresh copy of the driver even if you have one already.
after removing the nvidia display driver normally in program and features, follow up with this program.
Phyxion.net - Driver Sweeper
in Safe Mode (you want it to pull the nvidia display drivers only. it will give multiple options.

After doing that reboot normally and then reinstall the driver. You also have mixed cards I noticed so you may want to make sure physx isn't screwing up somhow.

Display Driver nvlddmkm stopped responding

Symptom: Start up game, within a fix seconds the game starts to studder and pause. The pause can be anywhere from a few seconds to 30. The game quits and a Vista error dialog box appears with the above message .

Anyone have any experience with this error? I am running Vista 32 OSwith a Nvida 8800 series video card (yes latest drivers).

I did not change anything on the pc from one day to the next but started getting this error in games. Basically making the games I was able to play one day unplayable next.

I have goggled the error and found A LOT in info but no solid resolution. It appears to be a very big problem that Nvida is trying to sweep under the carpet since they cannot fix it yet (Assuming it is an Nvida driver problem and not Vista).

Since no one has claimed responsibility for the problem yet (MS or Nvida) and there is no official resolution, ( In fact MS and Nvida have not officially recognized the problem yet) there are a lot of users out there trying everything under the sun to fix it.

I have tried two of the home-grown fixes that have helped a lot and I am able to limp a long in most games but they are not acceptable long term solutions. ( One: Turn of UAC security, TWO: Set theme to windows classic). I plan on trying a couple more when I get more time.
 

Answer:Display Driver nvlddmkm stopped responding

Hello,

I have tried for a month to get EA Nascar SimRacing to work on my notebook with Vista Home Premium. I have searched high and low for a driver update that is compatible with my Nvidia Geforce Go 7400 card on my notebook. As the game would crash, I was getting a message telling me that my driver had stopped working, and then said that it was working again. Yesterday, I finally got it to work with no problems. Make sure you have the latest game update installed first.

Here is what I did:

1. Went to http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/forum/...p?showforum=72
2. Downloaded the v163.74 Vista 32 bit driver update
3. ALSO downloaded the Modded INF file
4. Setup a new folder on my desktop (I called it "Nascar")..LOL
5. Extracted the self extracting "16374_vista" into the Nascar folder on my desktop.
6. Replaced the "nv_disp" file in this folder with the one I downloaded (drag & drop, then say yes to replace the older file already there)
7. Ran "Setup" out of this folder to install the updated driver
8. Restarted the computer after being prompted to.
9. Started the game normally, and it has worked for over 24 hours without an issue.

I have tried all of the tracks, and no problems. I hope this helps some of you who have also suffered frustration with this

Start with this troubleshooting guide: Video TDR Timeout - 0x116 + 0x117

Your BIOS dates from 2010. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard.

I'd also suggest these hardware tests. Please make sure that you do the video tests: Hardware Diagnostics

Kernel symbols are wrong, please ensure that your copy of Windows is properly activated.





Numerous errors when running your memory dumps. Should this be a pirated copy of Windows, please be aware that we may not be able to fix it (as the hacks that were done to activate it will cause the OS to behave differently than we expect it to). If that's the case, our efforts to help may just waste your time. Secondly, the forum rules prohibit assisting with pirated software - so the topic would be closed if that is the case.

I have the triangle in the bottom right corner with the box which has that statement in it. This issue freezes or crashes games and creates "flashes" or "flickers" during videos or freezes them. My display driver is up-to-date and there's no notice of a conflict. I'm willing to provide whatever info is necessary to fix this. I sure miss being able to play Civ games.

Answer:display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding

Eek it seems you have a 7600GT, which is quite old in computer terms.

It seems the card is failing on you and it is time to replace it. Fortunately the rest of your system is worth putting money into.

When was your last driver update? I'd try uninstalling all nvidia display programs and drivers then redoing them.

The other thing you can do, and this is what I do on my laptops 9600m GT, is use evga precision to underclock your gpu 25 to 50mhz and see if it stablizes.

For an fyi, you camn replace your card for $50 bucks for a gt520

I just installed my new graphics cards and successfully install new driver.

Most of time i got this error on the start up of my computer. Here an image



But it did happen once,when i was playing sniper elite nazi (for about 10min) and when it crashed i had to reboot because the driver didn't recover so any other games refuse to start giving DX11 failed error or just .exe crash.

All other games work properly.

I tryed to place the card in another PCIe slot but doesn't work either. I try both Driver Beta and the official one but both failed.

Please help me ^^

Thanks guys!

Answer:Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding.(GTX TITAN)

I did my own investigation and the primary reason is that my chip have 70.5% ASCI (with GPU-Z) which is kind of bad but not defective.
I flashed my bios with maarteen version and i'm able to have 1123 mhz gpu clock without problem and no throttling. Higher then that it keep crashing.

So more your ASCI is low, less u can overclock, lets say lower than 70 mean that your card have more "flaw" then other and is probably defective (lemon).

So I know this is a rather common error, but I'm at a bit of a loss as to what to do. I've looked up some things people have said are rather reliable solutions, but my computer skills are rather nonexistant and I don't trust myself enough to do much of anything involving shutting off processes, changing/deleting things without some help, for fear of screwing things up worse than they already are. So some help with my problem would be much appreciated.

I used to get the display driver nvlddmkm error occasionally while running The Lord of the Rings Online or streaming instantly through Netflix. The screen would show some weird colors in the browser, flash black and freeze for a bit, and then it would recover and show the error message. In the past few months, however, the error has been happening mostly when browsing on Internet Explorer or opening up iTunes or other random little things, not when running graphics-heavy games or video, which seems to be what usually prompts this error. It has been happening quite often, much more frequently than it used to, and it seems like it happens most often when I switch pages or open a new IE tab.

My computer has also been running slower than usual in general and is more prone to locking up randomly, though I have no idea if these problems are related--they just started happening at the same time.

I have the newest Nvidia drivers installed. When installing I did a clean install.

The event log gave me the following information:

From what I've been able to find out thru Google it seems this error has to deal with TDRs and so I'm not sure what I can do to fix this problem. Rolling back to the last driver doesn't help because the last couple updates have all given me this same problem.

Hi everyone

Like the title says, I got the "display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered" error every 5 minutes or so. My screen freezes, turns black and is fine again and there's a little yellow warning triangle in the bottom right of my screen.
I allready tried the Nvidia automatic computer scan to find the most up to date drivers and installed them, this helped nothing.
I also tried Windows Fix it. This gave a slight improvement and brought me to the current situation (before that my screen crashed every minute)

I hope one of you guys knows the magic answer so my computer functions properly again..

Hello I'm a new user to the forums, over the last few days I have been unable to start my Pc normally. If left to load after the "Starting Windows 7" screen, the Pc either BSODs with "Attempt to reset display driver failed" message appearing or my monitor shows "No signal from Pc". The only current work around for this I've found is to load the computer in safe mode then restart and let it load normally, it doesn't BSOD. If put into sleep mode, on waking up no signal is received, but I can still log in, as I can hear the sound through the speakers.
I am unsure as to whether this is a driver related issue or if it is due to my system now being pretty old.

Thanks for any help in advance

When the computer refused to boot with a stop 0x116 but boots fine in safe mode, it is definitely a display related issue .... either the driver or the card.

We cannot check the card in safe mode. So first let us try another version of the display driver.

You are correct to update your video driver:

Are you saying you are not able to update the driver? Are you able to remove the driver? If so, you can use Guru3D to remove traces of NVidia, then reinstall video driver.

Guru3D - removes leftover traces of drivers for NVIDIA (Display and Chipset), ATI (Display), Creative (Sound) Realtek (Sound), Ageia (PhysX) and Microsoft (Mouse)

Hi! So okay. I hope I'm at the right place for this.

Last year my laptop suffered from a pretty hard crash just when I was opening Spotify (pretty strange). I managed to get the computer up and running again after many factory resets, un/installations of drivers and so on. Don't remember half the things I did back then.

But since then I've still suffered from DSODs, like every time I restarted the laptop or something like that. But after some BSODs I've always got back in the computer, so I kept on living with it sort of. But recently the laptop just kept on crashing everytime it came on to the "Welcome..."-loading screen. Sometimes it works but its rare, but Safemode works fine.

The error the BSOD throws me is "Attempt to reset display driver and recover from time out failed" with the note pointing to atikmpag.sys. I've searched and tried so many different solutions I would like to think but I feel the need to get some help on this actually.

Followed the instructions for creating a log and below is my specs:

Computer: Samsung Notebook 305V5A-T05
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
CPU: AMD A8-3530MX APU with Radeon Graphics
RAM: 8GB (2x 4GB Samsung)

A week or so ago my Dell XPS 16 laptop screen would not turn on and I had to connect to my external monitor to see anything... the display was stretched and every time I tried to run the computer in normal mode this BSOD saying "Attempt to reset display driver and recover from timeout failed." then the computer would restart and give me boot menu.

The only way to get into the computer was through safe mode. In safe mode, I fiddled around a bunch with installing drivers from AMD catalyst since at one point it was missing. I couldn't fix it, so I decided to format my computer and re-install windows from the disk that came with the laptop.

The installation process stopped just after the setup said that it's updating registry settings... and again the same BSOD appeared, which restarted the computer. I tried using the driver and utilities disk that came with the laptop but I couldn't figure out how to fix the driver, or if I could... without windows being installed on the system.

I want to know if there's any way I can fix the drivers before I install windows 7 SO I can actually install it... or if I can somehow get around the BSOD and install windows 7, then fix the drivers with the disk.

I bought a XFX HD 7850 2GB less than 2 weeks ago and has experienced numerous BSOD all with the same error message "Attempt to reset display driver and recover from time out failed" I've tried various versions of AMD's catalyst driver but it has not resolved my issue. I have not attempted to overclock the GPU, all factory default settings.

The BSOD's are not easily reproducible. So far, it's happened only when I play Skyrim, after maybe 40+ minutes of gaming (but not always, as I've gone longer than that without experiencing the BSOD). What happens is that I would see artifacting on the screen: long, thin, triangles pointing to the center of the screen, when the artifacting occurs there is a GPU temperature spike (it goes to around 66 degrees celcius), and then the BSOD. The first BSOD I experienced, there was no artifacting. I had exited Skyrim and launched FireFox, and was immediately hit with a BSOD with that error message.

Using MSI Afterburner to keep track of the GPU temp, it normally does not go above 60 - 62 degrees celcius during Skyrim (idles at 27 - 30 degrees celcius). I can't reproduce the BSOD using GPU stress testing utilities like Furmark and MSI Kombuster (highest temperature seen is 66 degress celcius).

Driver versions I've used:

1) installed new GPU, uninstalled old nvidia driver, cleaned orphan nividia driver files in safe mode using Driver Sweeper, installed catalyst driver version 13.1. Experienced first BSOD in Skyrim.

When version 372.70 came out I didn't bother installing it for quite some time but when had plenty of time, I installed it. On the next day I got "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered." error (checked Event Viewer) and the HDMI sound disappeared. I checked for newer drivers and 372.90 was hot on the spot, so I downloaded it and installed. On next day, to my surprise same error happened.

Yesterday (almost 3 weeks later), with driver version 372.54 same error happened again. I have restarted computer and sound returned. I am planing to install 373.06 today, but if error happens randomly, there is no way telling if it will help or not right away.

Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered.

This event happens intermittently on some days, in any program, but in particular with Videolan VLC. This is a well known issue with lots of web posts, going back to 2010 and without a definitive method to identify the source.

This is not a gaming computer, and the video card is 18 months old Nvidia GT 620, with the latest Nvidia driver installed, powering a late model LG 21" LCD monitor. I tried three older Nvidia drivers as well, but they didn't help.

I replaced the HDMI cable to the monitor, installed a more powerful power supply. I am sure that this is a Windows 7 problem because this never happens when I boot into Linux Xubuntu, where I am using the generic Xorg Nouveau driver because Nvidia drivers are not nearly as good in Linux as they are in Windows.

The computer I got is second hand and has always been quite unstable. I usually get bsod if I leave the computer running for 15 minutes without any heavy programs in the background (IRQL not less or equal OR memory management). But recently I've been getting them while I play Skyforge. I'll play for 10 minutes then the cursor becomes all glitchy, in game the sky has all these red lines (obvious because of the graphic cards) then after about 30 seconds the screen goes to black. Then the bsod appears and the computer restarts.

I've already done a clean reinstalled of my NVIDIA driver but the problem still persists.

Any help would be appreciated.

"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception.

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Heyy everyone,

This is my first post on this forum, and it has taken me a while to post this thread since I have been trying to research and figure out my own problem myself by searching many, MANY, other related forums but so far have had not much luck. Also, obviously I couldn't find an individual who had the exact same specs as my computer who had the same issues, so I am going try and get help through this thread specifically for my computer. First I will explain everything that is going or happened and then all the specs are at the end of the thread.

Recently I downloaded a trial of World of Warcraft just to start playing it again for a little bit. I played it for about two days and then after playing it for about an hour or two straight, all of a sudden, the video card craps out, screen flashes, goes black, and then comes back within seconds. Then a message error pops stating 'Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.'.

Within those two days I was playing though, I was doing a lot of updates on my computer since I reformatted my laptop recently. So I thought maybe it had to do with the updates and decided to do a system restore. Of course with my luck, the system restore failed, and failed a couple more times after trying again but at different restoration points/dates. So then I decided so continue with my updates since I still had to install services pack 1, more updates, service pack 2, and more updates.

Error occurred while attempting to use the slice tool in Photoshop.

"display driver nvidia windows kernel mode driver version 332.21 stopped responding and has recovered"

Hello and thanks in advance for your help.

I am using a Dell XPS 8300 computer with the following specs:
Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1
64 Bit OS
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40 GHz
16 GB RAM
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti

Dell has attempted to help me with this problem. Prior to having this error pop up on my screen the computer would just have a blank screen at start up after the dell logo then the windows logo appeared. They had me run the computer in safe mode with networking and they have uninstalled all drivers and reinstalled them, they ran CCleaner and fixed all registry errors/cleaned out temporary files, they installed and ran Windows Security Essentials and got rid of any malware. Finally, they decided to send me a new graphics card. They had a technician come install the new card and run a diagnostic test and update all drivers. Everything seemed to be fine but when I opened a game on the system that uses the more intense graphics, the screen went blank again. I have not played any games since but while browsing the internet at random times, I get the error message from the title of this post. The screen will go blank for a few seconds then reappear with that message. I have tried to do some research and have found that the error is probably something called TDR.

Hi,

I was working with an audio recording software just now when I faced this error (in the subject line). The screen blacked for 10 seconds or so and then came back.

Also, I faced similar errors when I was using Power Point and a screen recorder software but the error was a bit different nvlkdm has stopped working. Also, I had just installed IE 9 beta (hardware acceleration), opened the first site and the system crashed and I had to do a hard reboot and unistall IE 9 to save my life from such errors again. The errors are just random. The nVidia drivers are downloaded the official nVidia and are the latest available for my DELL XPS M1530 with 8600M GT. (OS Win 7 Ultimate 32bit)

I also got two BSOD's at different time with a message saying:

I noted this error code on the blue screen

I think the issue lies with graphics card. I'm able to run the PC in Safe Mode. This is where I uninstalled the driver for the display adapter ( NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460). I then started the PC up normally and reinstalled the driver, which I downloaded from the Nvidia website. To complete the reinstall I'm asked to restart the PC, and this is where blue screen reappears with the same message.
I would be grateful to receive some help on this issue. My PC is a Dell Studio XPS 8100 and is running Windows 7 Home Premium.

Answer:Attempt to reset the display driver...

I would download and install an earlier version of the driver or reinstall the driver from the cd with the card, if you have it.
You will have to uninstall the newest driver in safe mode.

"Display driver nvlddmkm has stopped and has successfully restarted".I've posted on this before and since then I've been on many sites and discovered this problem appears to be widespread. Also there appears to be no definitive answer. Some methods work for some, others for others. None that I have tried have worked for me. Now as far as being computer literate goes I'm not too well advanced, and I'm afraid the info given on many, if not all, of the sites I've browsed has been frankly incomprehensible. Some posts say this is a hardware issue, others it's to do with the TDR on Vista, others it's a graphic card problem caused by NVIDIA cards. It's overclocking?, overheating?, CPSU?, etc etc. I'm at a total loss.What I can tell you is that my OS is Windows Vista 32 bit. I have an NVIDIA Graphics Card 8800 GT. MY CPU1 fluctuates between 87 and 100%. My CPU2 between 80 and 100%. My Memory Usage is 58%. (All these figures courtesy of NVIDIA System Monitor). If anyone can help, or at least cut through the jargon, I would be most grateful.

Answer:Display driver AMD driver stopped responding and has recovered

NOTE: I have severe eye problems. If I do not respond to your postings, please PM another staff member for assistance.

NOTE: Please provide the following information for a more detailed response: http://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...ta-452654.html

Most often this is caused by a problem with the display driver - but it can also be caused by other things (such as hardware problems, etc).

To check about the drivers, visit the ATI website ( Global Provider of Innovative Graphics, Processors and Media Solutions | AMD ) and download/install the latest version of the drivers for your system. FYI - your ATI drivers date from Feb 2010 - that's pretty old for a graphics driver!

If this doesn't fix things, the STOP error is a 0x117. This is very similar to the STOP 0x116 and troubleshooting is the same - so please visit this link to see other suggested troubleshooting: STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting - Windows 7 Forums

Please uninstall SpeedFan as the giveio.sys driver dates from 1996. If you wish to continue using it, please download a fresh copy from the owners website.

Hello all, first post here so bear with me!

I was running my computer fine yesterday as I normally would. I was only on YouTube, and I left the room to go get a drink. When I was coming back up the stairs I heard the Vista startup noise. I instantly thought of Blue Screen because it has occasionally happened in the past, often on hot days like yesterday, and usually sorts itself out.
When I got back to the computer I saw that I was on my login screen where I would normally enter my password. However, the screen display was warped and there were loads of coloured artifacts covering it so I couldn't see what I was doing. It looked like a giant game of Tetris. I restarted normally thinking it would go away, and at first it did. But then about 5 minutes later, I got a message "Display Driver nvlddmkm stopped responding, has successfully recovered" then the screen went blank and then a blue screen message came up, something like STOP 0x00000116. Everytime I boot up normally, at some point I get the blue screen, could be 30 mins but it always comes. Sometimes the artifacts are covering the screen from the start. It's like my computer has forgotten how to display.

Computer works OK in Safe Mode which I'm currently in. I dont mind Safe Mode for now except theres no sound. Have tried uninstalling NVidia drivers and reinstalling but to no avail, and also a System Restore. Not sure what else to do, really could use some help

Thanks a lot

Answer:Solved: HELP! nvlddmkm.sys not responding, coloured artifacts, display driver blue sc

Just an update to anyone who find this thread and reads it, this problem has been solved.

I decided after some research that the graphics card had died and have bought a better one off a friend. Installed the new drivers and it seems to now be working fine again, plus I have the added advantage of more power

I noticed when my old card was removed there was a horrific amount of dust gathers all over it. Not being the most hardware-literate of computer users, I have never really opened the case because I've not had the money to upgrade anything. This may have been what caused the card to die, who knows.

Anyway, if anyone has an issue like this, that's what solved it for me, so give it a go!

Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed is the error message at the top of the BSOD. Precursory searching has yielded that it's likely an issue with my video driver and that I'm going to need to do a clean sweep of it, but I wanted to make sure it wasn't anything else.

Seems to happen mostly randomly, sometimes while gaming, sometimes while net browsing, and even while idle at night.

*Windows installation is newer than that, but still the OEM, I reformatted not too long ago.

My system always runned pretty smooth, running BF4 on high setting with no problem, but last week my computer got pretty hot playing Borderland 2 and crashed on a BSoD. Now every time I start the game after 5 or 10 min playing I crash on the same BSoD : Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed.

I run a Toshiba laptop Qosmio X870 equipped with a Geforce GTX 670M.

-I've tried re-installing windows, same result, crash after 5 to 10 min.
--EDIT--
I've tried the windows hotfix for this problem : microsoft fix it 50848 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2665946
But still got the same crash, the game only freeze a bit longer before I got the BSoD

I run on directx 11 version and my windows 7 Home premium 64bit is up to date

I haven't tried any other game then borderland 2, but before the overheat it was running smoothly. The system is running good and I'm not overheating when a crash occurs (at least not my CPU cause it's the only one I monitors) and my fan don't even run at max speed. No lag in game, everything is normal before a crash.

Hello,

I was using my PC as usual when my dual-monitors just went black. Upon restarting, I got a BSOD with error message: "Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed" - It also notes nvlddmkm.sys in the description.

I have downloaded DM Log Collector in an attempt to upload the information here, however the program runs and does not create the .zip file as it says.

Any help towards a solution is appreciated.

I've been having an issue the past couple months in which I will be playing a game for around 5-10 minutes and then the screen goes black. After this, one of the following occurs:The screen returns, with the game being played not responding (Happens with less intensive games like Minecraft), a message saying the AMD display driver has recovered is displayed in the bottom right corner
The screen remains black until I ctrl + alt + del and force close the application (Steam games such as CS:GO)
The screen flashes between the game, and a black screen, usually consisting of audio loops, and then eventually freezes into a BSOD with the following message: Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed

I've tried updating my video drivers, monitoring my temperatures, and stress testing, but I can't find a solution.

Answer:display driver stopped responding

Check and update your DirectX 9 drivers, as the game your playing might not support DirectX 10. Also check and update your graphics drivers too. If your still having problems, then possibly downgrade the graphic's, as if too many things are on the screen, it may cause the driver to stop responding.

IF still having troubles, try and contact Nvidia support team.
Sincerely,

Hahaz.

I have a fairly fresh install of Windows 7 (< 1 month), because I found a good deal on a SSD I couldn?t pass up, and it has been running nice.
I mostly use this machine for working and as such used the on-board graphics card of the motherboard (GA-880GM-UD2H), however with the great reviews on Guild Wars 2 I figured I would get back into gaming and bought a XFX Radeon HD 6870 for the occasion. As my Thermaltake TR2-450 would not be sufficient for this FX card I swapped it with a TR2-500 I had on another machine.
I can play GW2 for hours at best quality and it works great ? no slugginess or stuttering at all.
However if I start the machine and open up a browser I can within 5 min get 2-3 errors (?Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered.?), and eventually the system will reboot. It is not limited to one browser and has also happened with Windows Live Mail.

I have looked around and not found any solution yet so I am hoping someone in here might have the magic potion needed.

Answer:Display driver has stopped responding and..

Welcome!

Have you tried these drivers? If those do not work, go into Device Manager, right-click on your card, and select Uninstall Drivers. Reboot, and see if it works.

If not, then go back to Device Manager, select your card, and click Update Drivers.

"Display Driver Stopped Responding and has recovered." I know this is not a unique problem since I can find it all over this and other forums, but none of the fixes I've tried have worked, and no situations I've read about are like mine.

This is a problem that occurred two or three times over a one-year period since I built my unit--nothing to really complain about. Usually the screen went black for a second, recovered, and I was on my way. But like a number of problems I'm dealing with now, it has gotten much worse since I upgraded to Windows 10 and subsequently had to abandon that hard drive and go back Windows 7 on a new hard drive a couple months ago.

It still wasn't a huge issue until this morning, when it has occurred over and over, and now it often doesn't recover: the monitor goes to sleep and all I can do is turn the computer off and on to start over. My GPU is a NVIDIA GeForce 760, and I have uninstalled the old drivers, reinstalled new ones with a clean install, and this makes no difference. (In fact, I've done this several times, with different driver versions.)

What have I done recently that could make a sudden change? I've included some add-ons to my web browser, but I took those off just in case. I installed an SSD this weekend, which the computer fully recognizes, and which I plan to eventually use to hold programs, but right now it's just empty, one of three hard drives.

I'd be grateful for any ideas. By the way, all I'm tryin... Read more

It freezes my computer up so bad I have to cold boot my computer to get things working again. When it freezes like this I get the following error message: Display driver stopped responding and has recovered - Display driver AMD

This computer is about 6 years old and I have never updated any of the drivers. My guess is it would probably help to update my video display driver, right.

I have never done this before and have no idea where to get an updated driver for it and how to install it.

I will need some pretty heavy hand holding on this cause I have no clue how to do this and if things go bad with the new driver is there a way to revert back to the old one?

Hey!

I'm sure you know the error I'm going to post so I'm going to give you the details.

It's my GPU that is an Asus ENGTX580 with the latest drivers (installed today after getting this error with the 296.10 drivers, which were old). The latest ones are 306.23 and I went to try the drivers and I got a bluescreen after just 10-15 minutes. I didn't install any new drivers since 296.10 because they gave me bluescreens. But it was a while ago I tried so I thought I'd try the new ones to see if they work. And they don't. I still get the drivers stopped responding message, and now I get bluescreens on top of that.

Stats of my PC:

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
ASUS P6T WS Professional Motherboard
Intel i7 920 @ 2.67GHz
4Gb RAM (Apparently my motherboard broke last week and I lost 2Gb. I've tried switching all the sticks and my third spot seems to be broken. Just know that the problems I have now have always been here)
Regular harddrives. Seagate 1TB x 2

Answer:Display Driver Stopped Responding

Try an older release NVIDIA driver. Sometimes the drivers are a little buggy. Also, Lenovo doesn't recommend that you use the driver released by NVIDIA. Realistically you can use whichever driver works, but the driver released by Lenovo has been specifically tested on that particular Lenovo product.

Answer:Display driver stopped responding

Most likely, something to do with system ram.

Visit the maker of you ram modules' site to determine the correct Vdimm (ram voltage) and timings. Set the motherboard accordingly.

Also, could be caused by too much heat on the gpu. Try running with a big room fan blowing inside the open case, as a test.

In the last few days this happened 2-3x - screen goes black for a few seconds, then a dialog box says "Display Driver AMD stopped responding and has successfully recovered." Yesterday, it happened again, but then went to a blue screen. I didn't have a chance to write down all the text, but I think it was also about the AMD Display Driver.

I googled it, but got so many suggestions, I wasn't sure what to do. Even the AMD site has about 20 different options of what might be wrong - and I wasn't sure which ones apply to me. I'm hoping if I post here along with info on my system, someone will point me in the right direction. I think it happens watching video, but not necessarily the same site or application.

Answer:Display Driver Stopped Responding

If you feel happy about doing so, you could unplug the PC from the mains, open the case and re-seat the RAM and graphics card. The problem may be caused by bad contacts. This link gives a lot of information on doing both but in the context of building a PC click hereFailing that I can only offer a temporary fix click here and how `temporary it is I have no idea. As the words say the problem could be caused by heat or faulty memory.

Once everything is back, I get a little popup saying that the display driver stopped responding, and has recovered. It's only a minor annoyance, but I'd like to know if there's any way to fix this? In my device manager, it says that I'm missing a video controller, which could be the cause of this.

Answer:Display driver stopped responding, new GPU

I would probably RMA the graphics card in this situation.  Different driver versions are about all you can try, really - you could try a different PCI-E slot, but you don't have any.  You could try reseating the graphics card and its power cables, but I suspect you're looking at a faulty graphics card.

Not sure if this is the right forum for this issue. Tues of this week, I turned on my PC in the morning and everything worked just fine. Walked away for a few hours and turned off my screen saver and noticed some fragmenting in my background. Rebooted my PC it did it's full boot, and then I got the dreaded blue screen of death, and it rebooted it's self. Every since then it would pop up with random display driver stopped responding box. The more graphic intensive processes I was doing the more often it would happen, and would get the random blue screen.

So began my search, I have read just about everything posted on this issue. tried new drivers for both my video card, motherboard, just about them all. Tested my memory and it's fine no errors, tested my HD, no errors there. Even reinstalled my OS which is Win 7 Pro 64 bit. This only leaves the Power Supply, CPU and Mother board.

I normally run BFG 9800 gt X2, my first thought was that since I live in AZ the heat had fried one the video cards, have had some heat issues when I first put the machine together in March 2010. So I tried each card by itself and tried both PCI - E slots and got the same issue. I even ganked my old EVGA 9500 GT out of my Mom's pc, and still the same issue.

Answer:Display Driver has stopped responding

Sounds like a failing power supply. Especially as the less powerful card is working.

The Coolmax unit you are using is just average, at best. I'd suggest a minimum 850w quality unit as you are using dual cards. Quality being Corsair or SeaSonic.

Check the output voltages in the BIOS.
