Windows 7: Display driver stopped working and recovered


27 Dec 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional SP1 32bit
 
 
Display driver stopped working and recovered

I am facing this problem once in each 3-4 hrs.
Everything is getting frozen and display is going black
for 2-3 seconds.Then I am getting a message like:

Display driver stopped working for Windows Vista(R)
and recovered.

The point is that I am running Windows7 Professional
(32-bit).

A few minutes ago I got a blue screen.
Everything is running fine for now but that can happen again.
Please help me solve this problem.

These are some information which might be useful:

Intel(R) G41 Express Chipset (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.1)
Manufacturer: Intel Corporation
Chip type: Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family
Display Memory: 782 MB

I am getting this error after formatting my PC a few days ago.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Manojit,

You may not be running the most optimal 'display driver' in the computer; you may try to update/re install 'graphics' if you encounter the issue again.

If you need more help in locating an 'apt driver', please share the 'graphics adapter(s)' installed in your computer. I will try to search for 'optimal drivers'.

Hope this helps. Do reply if you have any further questions. I would be glad to assist.

It is happening again and again .I am getting that error once in
each 3-4 hrs.Meanwhile I have uninstalled and reinstalled
the driver from device manager. But that didn't solve the problem.

Please help me.I have given all required information in this and the
previous post.

Where are you getting the drivers from ? Are you going directly to nvidia.com or amd.com ?

Or the laptops manufacturer.

I don't think the processor, or a specific GPU has been mentioned. Those could be causing a problem if they are overclocked, or can't be handled by the PSU.

is it a pc or laptop?
use process explorer and check for any un wanted program running beside your os
download it from here:
Process Explorer

check for the fans (EPS CPU and GPU fan) and monitor your system temperature. you may use real temp
from here:
Real Temp - CPU temperature monitoring
run check disk error
you may restore your system to a previous setpoint

It's a built-in graphics card.

Another information is I also have an ATI Radeon HD 4350 which I was using
a few months ago.I was getting frequent BSoDs ,so I switched to the built-in
graphics card.Now I am getting errors from this card also.

Thanks again for help to everyone who has helped me.
