Q: BSOD Still crashes after a factory reset. Attempt to reset the display

BSOD Still crashes after a factory reset. Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed.

I thought a clean factory reset will fix the issue. But it is still has the BSOD. I have uploaded the zip file that contains the dump as instructed.

Hello! New to posting here.

Over the past week I have experienced a BSOD while playing GW2. At first the screen would go black while playing (I could still hear the audio) and say no DVI cable was detected. I tried unplugging and replugging the DVI cable and tried using an HDMI cable as well but the signal would not return.

When I would try to reboot it, it would bring me to a BSOD saying something along the lines of attempt to reset the display drivers and recovery of timeout had failed. It would then fail to boot to windows and I would only be able to boot to safe mode where it presented me with a screen with a BCCode 116. I didn't get the rest of it and not sure if I can bring it up again. Figuring this was a driver issue, I tried to uninstall and reinstall the latest drivers and even tried to use some older ones to no avail. I also tried to move the card (GTX 670) to another PCI-e slot but that had no effect either thinking maybe the slot was damaged but that did nothing to fix the issue either. The strangest thing is that twice now it would just start working on it's own again and I have no idea what I had done that would cause this.

I found some other threads that seem to have a similar issue to me but their solutions have not worked for me. As requested in the posting instructions, I have attached the log from the DM log collector shortly after it started working again. Thanks for your help. Any assistance would be appreciated.

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.

Uninstall the display driver using Display driver uninstaller. Then download and install 13.9 WHQL or 13.1 WHQL. Does it happen the same? Let us know.

A:BSOD attempt to reset the display adapter timeout

Hi -

The error you are describing is a Video TDR timeout. There are 2 bugchecks associated:

0x116 = driver was unable to reset within 30 secs; BSOD ensued
0x117 = same as 0x116, except the driver did ultimately reset. This is called a "Live Kernel Event".

See if updating your video drivers helps.

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.

*OEM
*System is only around a year or two old
*Windows installation is newer than that, but still the OEM, I reformatted not too long ago.

In regards to your Video TDR Error:

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. Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU. Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference. If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

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)
Graphics card: AMD Radeon 6600M and 6700M Series, AMD Radeon HD 6620G

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.

I've tried the windows hotfix for this problem : microsoft fix it 50848 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2665946

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.

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.

I got a 2013 HP laptop win8 and when I attempt to do recovery,restore or even a Img bkup it goes to a black screen with mouse cursor that I'm able to move around but it does nothing else even if I let it sit for hours. I tried to use the built hp software to make a factory recovery disc but it said there was no recovery partition as if it were deleted but in fact a quick look with windows explorer shows it does exists and it perfectly intact plus the disk management shows it intact, healthy and labeled as recovery. As I said before I can reboot into the menu to choose to recover, restore and everything else but once I select one i get the black screen with the mouse arrow. Im trying to avoid buying the discs from hp. Would there be something possibly hiding or blocking the recovery partition ? Maybe a bad registry entry ? I've tried setting folder options to show hidden files and system files. Anyone have any recommendations ?

A:Black screen on factory reset attempt

I saw a website the other day that suggested turning off the Secure Boot on an HP machine. There seemed to be a process where you needed to enter a code you were given in order to turn it off.

I suppose other options might depend on your graphics configuration. If you can move your display back to an onboard or basic video output it might help. I do not know why doing such a thing would help since you are going back to a Factory configuration, but maybe something is getting stuck in the system and needs to be reset.

Knowing the Exact HP model number might help in research.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and let me know if any more information is needed. Thanks.

A:Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed!

You are correct to update your video driver:

Driver c:\windows\system32\drivers\nvlddmkm.sys (8.15.11.8593, 9,40 MB (9.853.248 bytes), 14.07.2009 00:09)

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)

If this is not the case, let us know.
You should also update your Realtec network driver:
Driver c:\windows\system32\drivers\rt86win7.sys (7.2.1125.2008, 136,50 KB (139.776 bytes), 10.06.2009 23:18)

Getting an infinite loading sort of error where my comp goes to HP loading screen, blackscreen, turns off, and repeats. Very annoying and nothing I've seen so far is working. I don't have a disk or drive to use to reload Windows with, and I didn't set any system restore points like an idiot, so I'm stuck here. I'm not that great with computers so any help would be appreciated, thanks.

First time user here...
I just bought a used HP Pavilion p7-1423w from a computer store locally. It ran fine in the store and when I got it home. It did not come with any recovery disc. After poking around (first time Win8 user also), I noticed a bunch of porn pics and thumbnails that were obviously from the previous owner. I selected the "reset the pc, erase all his personal files, and re-install Windows" option. After clicking the final "reset" button to begin the process, I left the room. I came back 30 mins later and my display was off. I thought it went to sleep or screen saver. I moved the mouse, hit a few keys, and still no display at all, as if there was no cable attached. I decided to wait another hour, and still no display. I changed to the other dvi port, still nothing. Finally, I hard booted and restarted. Still no display at all. No splash screens, no errors screens, nothing at all. Just my tv saying "no input". I have no idea what to do. I removed the hard drive and hooked it up as an external to my laptop. It shows Recovery folder-> WindowsRE folder-> winre.wim (unknown file type). Thats it. Someone please help.

Hi guys, just wondering if I could get some help on a BSoD I've been getting recently. It has always occurred after I have opened Chrome shortly after logging in.

Recently I had a virus on my computer. Microsoft security essentials picked it up and claimed to remove it. My computer was still slow, but neither avast or mse picked anything up in scans. Eventually I decided to restore to factory settings. I've done this in the past without any problems but this time I've been getting random BSOD. I've run system restore, and start up repair, but I still get them. It's very strange, they only started after the restore to factory settings. Each blue screen seems to have a different error but here are the dump files from the last blue screen. I appreciate any help you guys can give.

This is my first time posting in the forum so if I need to add any additional info, please tell me. I am following the instructions of BSOD posting provided.

I am receiving BSOD regularly during use and sometimes when I open my computer after putting it to sleep. I had so much trouble that I just did a factory reset and did not even restore my backed up info. I just installed bitdefender, chrome, and winamp. I still had BSOD problems so I uninstalled BD and installed MSE and malwarebytes as were some of the general suggestions on other sites. Still had BSOD problems. Thought it was winamp because it would blue screen shortly after opening winamp (and was very noticeable since the music would freeze in the middle of playing a song and loop the music where it stopped), uninstalled it and used Windows Media player. After doing yesterday I did not BSOD last night but I did BSOD today so I don't know what the problem is anymore.

Attached are: SF_Diagnostic_Tool log and a picture of the latest BSOD I encountered (if it helps), which is generally the same as the other BSOD I have been encountering in terms of stop code and the fact that "physical memory dump FAILED."

A:BSOD during regular use after factory reset

update:

Blue screened again, this time with a stop error code I do not think has appeared before. Now shows 0x000000F4. Ran the SF_Diagnostic_Tool again and let it save in the same folder with (2) designating the new files. If this is a hardware issue, if you could get back to me ASAP that would be great; I bought my computer July 2, 2012 so I still have the 1 year limited warrenty from Sony to replace hardware problems.

Also, when i run SF_Diagnostic_Tool it tells me unable to find dump file, if that makes a difference. However, I followed the posting instructions and set everything to how the screenshots showed.

Thanks in advance.

I was using win 8.1 when an AMD driver update caused an atikmpag.sys bsod. HP recovery wasn't working from my recovery partition so I downloaded an iso of win 8.1 (win 8 iso is not available) using their media creation tool and installed it. The laptop booted but obviously without drivers specific to my pc. I then downloaded the drivers specific to my pc and os and installed them. However the amd graphics driver always cause an atikmpag.sys bsod (except once. I was able to play my games fine until I rebooted and got the same bsod). I figured the only way was to do a factory reset by ordering recovery media from HP, which I did. And Im still getting an atikmpag.sys bsod.Bios tests show that my hdd is fine. I could run games smoothly that one time when I wasn't getting a bsod so there's no hardware issue with the 7670m either.Why am i still getting an atikmpag.sys bsod even after a factory reset (which includes reformatting my drive) ?

Asus N53S
GeForce GT 630M

8GB Memory
Windows 7 64-bit

I have noticed that the computer becomes unresponsive and/or crashes a little while after waking up from Sleep/Hibernate. I think I can contribute the 3 most recent crashes to this. The first 2 I think may have been something else, but am unsure.

In addition to crashing, the computer becomes unresponsive, for reasons I don't know. Based on the event viewer I have manually held down the power button over 15 times to shut off the computer because it hangs up (mouse moves but nothing works).
