Dell OptiPlex 3040 - Error: "Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered."

Q: Dell OptiPlex 3040 - Error: "Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered."

Hello Support Users,
I'm having an issue with the OptiPlex 3040 Intel HD Graphics 530 Driver for Windows 10 Pro. The machine will work fine for awhile then while certain applications like Microsoft Excel are running, the machine will stop working and give the following error:"Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered."
This machine has 2 monitors so using the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter doesn't work, even googling if that works or detects such is almost absent. I'm just letting whoever know it doesn't work with dual monitors on Windows 10 Pro.
I've found this link and installed the following display driver to see if that clears the issue + adjusted some PC settings in "Advanced System Settings" Under This PC : Windows still chooses what to do for visual effects and Virtual Memory is now 4096MB. I've also added the TdrRelay = 10 to the GraphicsDriver section in Registry.
Here is the link that's been suggested and the steps I've taken so far, I did skip the DELL driver and went for the initial Intel Generic Driver instead.
Is anyone else facing this issue with their onboard graphics?
Thread I've used so far to troubleshoot:www.intel.com/.../000005482.html
Any suggestions which could help or solutions for this PC?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

Hello,
About 3 - 4 times a day while working, my computer will freeze for a 1 - 2 seconds and I get a message saying my display driver has crashed and has fully recovered. In the event log I see a warning saying:
"Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered."
I have a Dell XPS 15 running Windows 10 with the latest updates. It has one Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600 and one NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M graphics cards. I also use a Dell D3100 USB 3 docking station, however I notice the issue with and without this being used.
I have tried installing the latest drivers for the NVIDIA card. I am currently using "10.18.13.5906".
Any ideas on how to fix this?
Cheers,
Mark

First off heres a screen of the exact message I get: http://www.itwriting.com/blog/?p=110. While playing some games, every 1-3 minutes, my screen goes black. To fix this I have to alt tab out and tab back into the game. The message i get appears on my taskbar: " "Display driver igfx stoppe responding and has successfully recovered". It is a very annoying message, and I'm using a new computer with windows vista on it. If you dont think it is a big deal then think of this : its 1v1 and your playing counter strike source. All of the sudden your screen goes black and you hear shots followed by a "HEADSHOT" "COUNTER-TERRORISTS WIN." This bug is really annoying and I need someone to give me a step by step guide to fix it.

Hi.
I have an XPS15 that has been "upgraded" to Windows 10 but I am constantly getting this error. I have attempted to find updated drivers, and I found one from Sept. 2015, but I'm still getting the same problem. It is incredibly frustrating. Help. 

A:XPS15 error: "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered"

Hi BUTTERNUTS,
What is the exact system model? When did the issue start? Was the issue seen when the system was on Win 8 or only after you upgraded to Win 10?
If the system was working fine earlier while on Win 10, then perform a system restore to restore the system to a point where it was working fine - http://bit.ly/1JEw2ov
For XPS 9530:
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/1Qpam2M and reinstall the Intel video driver from the same site. If the issue persists, then uninstall the existing video driver and install the driver from Intel site - http://intel.ly/1h4oaGT
For XPS 9550:
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/1XOjEeg and reinstall the Intel video driver from the same site. If the issue persists, then uninstall the existing video driver and install the driver from Intel site - http://intel.ly/1qEcrCW
If the issue is not resolved, then create a new local admin account and check - http://bit.ly/1JoFhcw
If the issue is seen only on Win 10 and was working fine on Win 8.1, then downgrade to Win8.1 and check - http://bit.ly/1RMaCdK
You could later perform a clean install of Win10 and check - http://bit.ly/1VxGDgb

Hi there,

I am new here and I am not computer guru. So I ran the test earlier today , and everything was fine. Max temperature after 11 minutes running the test was as far as I can remember not more than 85 it stayed stable with only 1 degree difference from time to time till I stopped the test. I am with Palit Gtx570 Sonic Platinium video card. So I didn't take a screen because I thought everything was fine. Seven hours later I ran the test again and then suddenly here is what happened :




Actually I bought my computer recently. I am using Win7 64bit. I had that problem and here is what I have done:

1.Reinstalling drivers from different sources - Palit, Nvidia and disc drivers. Tried older versions.
2. Reinstalling Windows - putting first the drivers of the video and then the drivers of other devices with the purpose to try to detect if there is a driver conflict.
3. Talked with the distributor which sold me that video card and they changed it with a brand new one. The same model.
The first video card had that TDR problem quite often. This one not that often. The first one was able to force the TDR crash in two ways -no need of those test. I installed a game called - World of Warcraft and I tested it there was where i experienced TDRs for first time. After that I found out that I can force them to happen also when I am testing the " Windows experience index" - usually happens on the 3D Geometry and some other 3D tests.

Lately, for no explain-able reason, whenever I play a movie every 5-15 minutes I get a glitch with the picture getting stuck, audio replaying itself for a few seconds, screen turns black and everything goes back to normal, with a pop-up appearing informing me that my graphic kernel was shut down and has been restored.
I have attempted updating graphics driver (using the 310.64 nvidia beta one, after the latest didn't solve it), updated windows to latest version, and followed advices given on http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2665946 with no effect.
Any suggestions on how to fix this? It has occured to me while playing movies in SMPlayer, as well as in streaming online media.

Typically the cause of a video driver glitch which can resolved by upgrading or downgrading the video drivers. I've also seen it caused by a specific app. In which case, updating the app or using a different app resolves the problem.

This has already been brought up here but I wanted to put it again because I'm having difficulty with it at the current moment and I was having trouble understanding what was put in the response to the other one.

Basically, I started playing Perfect World International. At first I played at my friend's place but now I've started playing on my own laptop. I downloaded and played for the first time on my laptop. As I was playing, the screen went black. After a second, it went back to normal and it said "Display driver igfx has stopped responding and managed to recover". Now this happened multiple times. After a while it became impossible to play as it was happening so frequently. I restarted and was able to play again without problem for a few more minutes before it started once again.

I really don't know what to do, what do you recommend?
 

A:"Display driver igfx has stopped responding and managed to recover"

Video driver is stalling, as part of Vista's new WDDM pipeline Windows will just restart the driver. You should update your video card driver and DirectX too, do you know what GPU aka video card your using?

Your memory is experiencing excessive pagination. This means that you don't have enough RAM to run the system effectively (the systeminfo report shows only 94 mB free). A mature installation of Vista requires a minimum of 2 gB of RAM to function properly (you only have 1 gB). Also, with this amount of RAM you can't afford to have any programs starting when you start the computer - and you can't affort to have more than 1 program running at a time.

There are no memory dump files in the files that you attached. I'd suspect that this is because of the RAM issues that you're having. Luckily there is some information about the Blue Screens in the MSINFO32 report.

Hello!
I recently got bsod's after installing amd drivers,it happens when browsing 9gag/watching youtube/ etc and playing
games

Bsod error message says atikmdag.sys and sometimes atikmpag.sys

It got it fixed when i deleted all amd drivers with Display driver uninstaller. And installed older drivers (13.12)
But the problem with the older drivers is that i get "Display driver has stopped responding and recovered" Error message. And it sometimes crashes my games and i have to restart them (wich is kinda annoying on competitive games)

Things i've tried

-Removing and installing drivers (different versions)
-Expanding atikmdag.sy_ to atikmdag.sys and renaming the other one atikmdag.sys.old etc
-Updating gpu bios (drivers?) Idk if i succeeded?

So any possible solutions for one of the two? or why not for both of them
People tell me to download new drivers to fix the error message but if i download newer drivers i get bsod
All help is much appreciated!

A:Bsod and "Display driver stopped responding and recovered" Problem

I ran memtes86 with 1 full pass and no errors, changed ram slots but the error message still keeps appearing.

Edit: I was monitoring my gpu temperatures and usage with Cpuid and saw that my gpu usage was randomly jumping from 0% to 40-60 and back, is it just bug or could that be the problem?

Edit2: Everytime the error appears my gpu usage jumps up to 65%

Edit3: Gpu doesn't crash under stress test so i guess it is driver related? Older driver versions 13.x and older = crashes but no bsods . 14.x and newer= bsods but no display crashes.

I've been having problems with artifacts (sprinkled dots and rainbow-ish shapes) popping up on my screen whenever I put my laptop to any more demanding use, like games, videos, hi-res images, etc. This leads to the system hanging up, repeated "Driver stopped responding and recovered errors", and eventually a blue screen. If I shutdown my computer and restart it, it tends to go away for a few days before returning to normal.

I ran the Furmark stress test and it immediately caused the above symptoms and I had to stop it. I'm aware that this kind of problem may have several possible causes. I'm hoping maybe someone with a similar system (see my system specs) has overcome this.

I'm open to any suggestions at this point.

Edit: Wow, great timing. I was just trying to play Osmos just now and I got an error message I never noticed before. The game froze up and the "driver stopped responding" message came up but this time I got an Nvidia Open GL error that said "The NVIDIA OpenGL driver lost connection with the display driver and is unable to continue.

Hi there,

Occasionally, I have been receiving the following error message over the last month:

Just before this error message comes up, the system very briefly freezes and blanks out. It seems to occur randomly, but I am not certain how to prevent it from occurring altogether. A couple of times, too, previously, my applications would suddenly stop responding (for example, while browsing on any search engine), or trying to run other programs (at times, I couldn't even click on anything on the desktop). I am not sure if those problems are directly related to the display driver error, but upon the two times that it happened, I performed a system restore, and that seemed to correct the problem on both occasions, but the display driver error continued.

I have also attempted to update my graphics driver (which is an Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600) on the device manager, but that didn't resolve the problem. I am using Windows 10 (64-bit) and have a Lenovo y510p laptop.

What can you suggest to stop this problem from occurring altogether? Is there anything that I can try? I would greatly appreciate any assistance!

Thanks,

Hi all, so yesterday I upgraded my laptop's OS from Windows 7 Home Premium to Professional N.

I have a feeling I may have messed up the drivers somehow by restoring the same ones from the old OS...

Every half-hour or so, if I'm doing something strenuous on the old girl like YouTube/Netflix/gaming etc., the screen freezes, fills with colourful dots, goes fuzzy and restores back to normal, showing the message "Display driver AMD stopped responding and has successfully recovered".

I've tried using the Microsoft Fixit Registry editor, but that didn't seem to do anything, nor did a scan with one of those dubious registry cleaners.

Any suggestions?

When I first got Portal 2, it ran fine and i got about 2 hours of gameplay until i got the error "Display Driver Stopped Responding and Has Recovered". I assumed it was because I overheated, and I turned off the computer for the day. The next day I got back on, and it didn't even let me in game without crashing and showing the same error sign. Ive uninstalled, reinstalled, and cleared the game, but nothing is working. Increasing the GPU processing time to 8 also did nothing. I even went to the in-game settings and put all the video graphics to the lowest settings, but that didnt change the game crash at all. I dont think its a matter of getting a new graphics card, because mine did work in the game for 2 hours. None of my other games give me this problem. Does anyone know how this issue can be solved?
 

A:"Display Driver Stopped Responding and Has Recovered"

The issue occurs when the Timeout Detection and Recovery feature available in Windows Vista and 7 detects that the graphics card has not responded within a predetermined period of time and reinitializes it with the Windows Display Driver Model to prevent the need to reboot.

1, What is the operating system installed?
2. Have you taken any steps other than what you mentioned to troubleshoot the issue?
- Such as checking for driver updates?
- Check the temp of the CPU and GPU?
3. Are all Windows Updates Installed (including the latest service pack?

I get that loads of times with an accompanying mini freeze which lasts anywhere from 2-4 seconds whenever I attempt to play Final Fantasy XIV. After multiple attempts at trying to fix these problems, I got to the conclusion that it may vary just a tiny bit according to driver version(for me at least). On the latest R331 I got these freezes around every 5 seconds which lasted for quite a few seconds. Upon advice to try R310 I got it in a wee bit more longer intervals, say 10-15, and lasted just a few. Upon my downgrade to the earliest version the NVIDIA archives had for my GPU, I got the freezes about once every 30secs - 1min, and they lasted for about 1-2 seconds, still freezes though no matter how short. I'm not entirely sure about these though but the R331 driver was definitely the worst, this old version I'm running is considerably more "calm". Since the driver versions only seem to affect how long the intervals of the freezes are and how long they last, is there any other way to solve these frequent "Display driver has stopped responding and has recovered"?

The graphics card that came with the machine was a NVIDIA GeForce GT 520. I was playing computer games on one monitor while browsing and watching videos on my second monitor. Although this was a low end card, it still worked fine.

Today I bought a Radeon HD 7770 card and installed it. whenever I open up a game (example World of Warcraft) and log in I get a black screen and the error message stated above. I sometimes have to log off via task manager because it will repeatedly do this.

When installing the card, I noticed it touched my SATA3 port (See attached photo). After long deliberation I decided to move my SATA2 and SATA3 TO SATA1 and SATA2. I don't know if this would affect it in anyway, but a friend assured me it wouldn't.

My computer specs are the following:

Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1 (7601.win7sp1_gdr.120503-2030)

Hello,

I've been having a persistent issue whenever I would play The Sims 3: After a variation between 5-30 minutes of game play, the game would freeze, black-out and then resume its normal procedures, flash black again then normal, and it will continue that pattern until a blue screen shows up saying that my computer has been shut down to prevent damage, with this error message before the blue screen: "Display driver Intel Graphics Accelerator for Windows 7(R) has stopped responding and has recovered" (Though the recovered part seems like a complete lie.). I have tried the following to try to fix this issue:Clear my temporary files
Ran disc clean-up
Uninstalled and reinstalled my display driver (about 3 times already, and it doesn't seem corrupt, AND while using safe mode)
Cleared any unnecessary processes that were running in the background
Uninstalled and reinstalled the game itself, AND bought a new disc of the same exact game
And I looked for the latest driver updates

I run Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, with an Acer laptop, and the game was working fine until the few recent game updates. My computer isn't generally slow, in fact, it is running faster than ever (at 2.4 GHz), and I still experience this problem even after I have done all of those things listed above. Is it still my laptop's fault or the game itself?

Whoever can help me with this will be much appreciated! Thanks.

Right for a while i've been suffering from a problem where whilst playing certain PC games (i.e. Empire Total War, Battlefield Bad Company 2 & even Spore) the game begins showing black screens followed by a complete crash of the game, me having to ctrl+alt+delete it and be given this message at the bottom right of my PC ("Display Driver nvidia Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 301.42 stopped responding and has successfully recovered").

I've been to many forums to look for a way to remedy this problem to no avail. Then I thought HANG ON! this isn't my fault it's Nvidia's, It's been like this since I got the computer.

I've e-mailed them and the responses I get will be featured on here to help all of you who are also having this problem, I just wish this forum stays open to give anyone at any time the answer to this problem.

A:Display Driver stopped responding and has successfully recovered

Here is the message I sent to Nvidia.

When playing certain Video Games (i.e.) Spore, Empire Total War, Battlefield Bad Company 2, The game randomly display black screens before shutting off completley and displaying this message at the bottom of my screen "Display Driver nvidia Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 301.42 stopped responding and has successfully recovered"

I have tried downgrading to a younger Driver Version, Placing all Settings under graphics within the game to Low or Lowest, Emphasize my Graphics card usage through the Nvidia control panel to Performance, Patching the games listed, reinstalling the games listed, Updating all hardware in the computer to the newest versions (including Bios). And I am still experiencing this problem.

I am close to returning the computer back to the store but would like some advice on fixing this problem and hopefully avoiding that. Can you help?

Thankyou
Adam (Stacy) Winson.

I just got a new PC and this problem occurs very frequently while gaming, causing the game to force close. I searched the internet for solutions and tried many things but all failed to work.

What I have done so far:
-. Clean uninstall the GPU driver, and then reinstall. As a note, it came as the latest version to date.
-. Added Qword TdrDelay in regedit and set its value to 8
-. Reverted theme from Aero to Windows Basic
-. Temporarily uninstall Chrome and Firefox
-. etc which I cannot remember right now.

The only thing I know I haven't tried yet is downgrading the GPU driver to a previous version, but I don't have any idea how far back I should go.

Here's the PC spec according to the summary of Speccy:

OS:
Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1

CPU:
Intel Core i7 4770 @3.40 GHz Haswell 22nm Tech

RAM:
8.00GB single channel DDR3 @798MHz (11-11-11-28)

Mobo:
Gigabyte Technology H97M-D3H

GPU:
2048MB ATI AMD Radeon R7 200 Series

Storage:
931GB Seagate ST1000DM003

Thanks in advance

Hi

I could have sworn I made a thread already but i guess not.

I have had this Display Driver has stopped responding and has recovered successfully error ever since I have purchased my HD 7770.

I contacted HIS and they told me to disable ULPS. I have but it still crashes.

The speeds of the card have not been touched and temps when Idle are 27-30c.

I cannot even render a video in Sony Vegas Pro without it getting the error. when that happens vegas pro crashes and i must start the render again. Its PAINFUL!

other times are in games.

Counter Strike Source crashes when I get the MOTD (message of the day) or I select to buy weapons. if i start the game again its all fine?!?!

I have a 700w CoolerMaster eXtreme Power Plus

Catalyst 12.4 (most stable I have tried 12.6)

CCC overdrive settings. Core: Default Mem: default Power +20 for extra headroom

Thanks guys

Also


I downgraded to 12.3 from HIS website (the drivers for when it came out) and still the same.


reapplied thermal paste and swapped 6pin psu connector (maybe the other was faulty)

Alright, I know this has been posted a few times, and that quite a few methods have been tried and have succeeded or failed for some people, but every option i've tried has done nothing to help, or even fix the problem... I have the 1GB Sapphire ATI Radeon HD5830 graphics card.
I've tried:
- Uninstalling/reinstalling
- Updating, backdating, and even fresh installs of driver and/or CCC
- Intense/moderate/no cooling
- Not installing anything and letting Windows detect the driver and Auto install (without disk) the card
- Vista, XP, Win7 drivers (in compatability mode of course :P)
- I've tried third party drivers
- Physically cleaning, and making sure the card is in properly and all the pins are fine...
- Over/Under-clocking my computer (including card)

I know I sound crabby, and I hold nothing against anyone here, but it's irritating me to no end because I can't go 5 minutes without this message, and the freeze, solid colour, then 'fine' again, sometimes even up to (and including) 4 times in a row without pause, and it just freezes my computer sometimes, and i have to forcefully restart the computer.

And the worst part is, is that it does it DURING fullscreen high graphical games! Somethings going on, and from what I've seen, it's not an uncommon thing...

Although, I did notice it seems to only happen with the 1GB cards...?

If there is any way that has a high chance of success, shoot it my way please.
I greatly appreciate any help and/or advice that is given...

Regards,

I have received the following error message 3 times today:

Display driver stopped responding and has successfully recovered.

The message just started appearing today. No new software installed, but did Windows Updates yesterday.

Each time it has occurred I was using Firefox. This is on my desktop, an HP p6530f with Windows Home Premium 64 bit. According to device manager, the display adapter is the Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator HD with driver version 8.15.10.2040.

I have never had to deal with an issue like this, so I thought I would ask for some advice. Thanks.

Hi
I've had this problem for probably around a year and I've tried so many "fixes" but it never seems to actually get fixed. Most of the time it happens when I'm playing a game in full screen mode for example.. I played league of legends in full screen mode and this crash was happening frequently, but when I changed it to windowed mode it no longer crashed.

specs:

windows 7 64 bit

AMD radeon 6850
XFX 550w psu


I don't know what else to say so just ask if you want to know more

I've done:

Reformatted my pc
reinstalled drivers the proper way
ran memory tests and got 0 errors


Thanks

A:AMD display driver has stopped responding and has successfully been recovered

Please provide us a JCGriff Report instructed here. Also, how many passes did you do with the memory test? You used Memtest86+, correct? It should run at least 7 consecutive passes (1 pass = all tests done once).

If this happened even with a reformatted system and a fresh Windows install, I'm worried this is hardware failure, and moreso that it's your video card, since it seems to only occur with full screen. Have you tried any other games besides LoL? Do they suffer the same problem if they're fullscreen, but ok when not?

I've been having this problem pretty much ever since I got my computer in November of 2012. "Nvidia kernel mode driver has stopped responding and has successfully recovered." The computer would be unresponsive and then go black for a few seconds before that message pops up. I've tried doing a clean install of the most recent driver for my graphics card, and tried uninstalling the card and reinstalling it with no luck. The thing is, I was having an issue with my network adapter before the issue with my graphics card started. Every time I would download something, be in a Skype call, watch a video, or just be browsing the internet, the network status in the taskbar would say I have no internet access and I'd lose internet. I'd then click on "Open Network and Sharing Center," click on the "!" button, and the troubleshooter would fix the problem. I think it reset the network adapter every time I had the troubleshooter run. I downloaded a program called DriverMax and installed a newer driver for my network adapter, which fixed the problem, but once I did that, the problem with my graphics card started happening where it would stop responding and recover. It might be a conflict in drivers or something, but how would I fix this? My graphics card is a GeForce GTX 460, motherboard is an Intel D955XBK, and the network adapter is an Intel(R) PRO/1000 PM Network Connection (10.0.0.11).

A:Display driver has stopped responding and has successfully recovered

I had the same problem and had to go to the site of the video card manufacture for a driver. In my case that was MSI. MSI made my Nvidia 460 O/C card and their driver fixed the problem.

I'm using windows 8 on my Macbook Pro mid to late 2010 15 inch via the latest version of Bootcamp. Every now again my display goes completely black for five or so seconds then comes back and gives this message: "display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 320.18 stopped responding and has successfully recovered."

I just installed Windows 8 on a fresh partition. Prior to installing Windows 8 I had Windows 7 and I noticed the problem had started popping up on there as well in recent times, though it worked perfectly for two years.

What's the solution?

Thanks.

Also I should add, the driver only ever seems to crash when I'm browsing with Firefox. Firefox crashes then it brings up this crash report

About 4 or 5 days ago I began getting the message 'Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered'. It occurred specifically for the first time while I was playing football manager and had a youtube video streaming in the background at the same time. My screen initially blacks out a couple of times and then the message pops up at the bottom of my screen resulting in game crashes and unviewable streams.

I am able to recreate the same problem either by playing games which bring on the problem as far as 40 or 50 minutes into gameplay or by streaming multiple youtube videos at the same time which brings the problem on in a matter of minutes.

I have looked at a number of posts which have identified the same problem and have tried to carry out as many of the possible solutions as are possible.

1. I have updated all my video drivers
2. I have downloaded and installed all my windows updates
3. I have ruled out my graphics card overheating

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.

So, Recently I was solving graphic card issues. It all ended with buying new GPU and PSU.
I bought sapphire hd 7750, and seasonic ss energy kinght 500w. Had opened thread about it.

It all started few months ago when I was getting msg that display driver had stopped working and successfully recovered. This was coming with few seconds screen fading and then came back to normal. Usually it screwed up any opened game which crashed, and I had to start it again. I didnt pay much attention to it until my screen started fading regularly and wouldnt come back anymore. I had to turn off my PC and start it again. I believe that my old nvidia 9600gs was also overheating, and being pushed beyond the limits, and it died in the end.

So I bought new card as mentioned above, thinking it was old card problem, but no ...

I updated my gc to the latest drivers but that didn't solve the problem. At least it is actually recovering now-a-days, not just stuck in the endless loop of black screen, recover message, no response, black screen etc until a blue screen of death!

Is there a cause for this or shall I just accept it as normal for vista for now?
