Windows 7: Display driver has stopped responding and has recovered

20 Jun 2010   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium

Okay, I filled in on my profile every spec that I know about. Yes, I've updated it over and over again but it didn't work. Should I try turning off timeout detection? I don't know how.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

I have a similar issue. I have a ATI 5850, I have literally replaced every single part in my computer, only to continually get a "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" I know Vista as well as Windows 7 have had issues with this. I believe it is their timeout detection and recovery. I am just unsure how to turn it off. I have gone to other threads like this: Timeout Detection and Recovery of GPUs through WDDM

But I would just like step by step instructions on how to disable the timeout detection through the registry editor.
