Windows 7: Display driver stopped responding and has recovered

All being well, you shouldn't experience any further problems on this score.

Windows Updates can only push the updates that Microsoft and hardware manufacturer's provide, so it can hardly be blamed if such updates prove to be problematic.

If ever you download a driver that doesn't work properly you can always go into Device Manager and roll back to the previous version.

If there is new driver update in the future, will i encounter problem like this again? And why? Just wanted to understand more. Thanks

Whenever manufacturers release a new driver it may not have been fully tested first and you may ask why.

Well, the more cynical amongst us would say that it's cheaper for us 'volunteers' to test a new driver and report any bugs than it is for the manufacturer to employ their own test engineers.

Generally speaking, there's no real need to update a driver if your hardware is performing satisfactorily and there's no mileage in having the latest driver just because you want the latest of everything.

If what you have is working satisfactorily, my advice is to leave well alone.

As for updates from Microsoft, just check each one before you install it.

So in another words it is my hardware causing the problem right?

No, it's not.

If the graphics card had physically failed you would have known it and no matter which driver you install would have cured it.

The message you saw relates to the driver so it was software related, not hardware related.

If everythings is running OK now, just stop worrying and enjoy your computer.

No he's saying if you have a Outdated Driver with no issue like i have a outdated Audio driver but my System is stable in games so don't update to the latest Driver because you want it and for the updates check each update so you know what you are installing before doing it that's all.

Hi,

I always update when it prompt me to do so. I never bother to check what kind of update is it. I wonder is this fine?

As long as you're including optional Updates.
