Had the same problem

Right click on your desktop, choose Personalize, and then choose Windows 7 Basic, see if that resolves your issue.

Go to the manufacturers site, for your graphics card, and download and install the
latest driver for your machine.

I have except it says Windows 7 (instead of Vista) and was told it is a java related. I was playing Runescape when it happened. I sent Sun systems email...no response yet. However, I downloaded the latest Java update and it seems to have slowed down, but it still happens. [IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Trisha/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot-3.png[/IMG]

Like I said

Change your theme to windows 7 basic.

The other thing you guys want to look at, are the following two possibilities:

1) If you have onboard graphics, disable them in your BIOS. I started having driver failures once I added a second graphics card, my guess is that you guys have onboard Video, (not a great idea if you're going to be using a graphics card anyways). I personally use an ECS NForce 650i, it's a really stable motherboard, and will run RAM that most others won't. The second possibility is:

2) If you have a non-main stream graphics card, ie: something other than an 8800, 9600, 9800, 260, 265, 280, 290, 295, (I don't know what ATI's "standard/high-end" models are, then the drivers are modded versions of these. I tried to run an 8800gts PCIx16 and a PCI 8400GT, (640MB and 512MB Respectively), and that's when I started having issues. Because while the same driver controls both, it's not 100% compatible with the second card.

Solution:
Try using 7 basic theme, (improved stability for me), (if you're gaming disable water reflections - if possible)
If you have onboard video, Disable it in the bios, (or replace your motherboard)
If you have multiple video cards, make sure they're 100% the same model.

Windows 7 64-bit
 
 

For the past few hours, as well as numerous other hours, I've been reading lots and lots of post about this problem.

It seems like this problem first occured along with Vista (but more widespread then compared to Windows 7) and has never been fully solved.

The most common answer from costumer support, "Mr. I know everything" and similar people is that you have some kind of hardware problem, which just might be it. However. This problem occurs as well (as I'm sure many of you are aware of) for people who've never had any problem at all with their computers before they installed either Vista or Windows 7. Personally I can't be convinced that all of us who're encountering this problem suddenly, discovered previously unknown hardware faults. My experience is that the frequency of this problem change along the versions of the drivers, sometimes it gets better, sometimes it get worse.

Today it's been a while since the final version of Windows 7 was shipped, and there's been some updates as always, but without anything to solve this problem. I've been testing 3 different versions of Windows 7 without any luck, the only complete solution I've been able to find has been to go back to XP or use a Linux distrubution.

I haven't said much about what you can do to try to solve this problem, since I have not been able to find anything that solved it for me. However, here's a link that I'm sure that at least some of you will find very helpful (even if you've a ATI card).

Win7/64bit - build7600
 
 
Possible "Display driver stopped..." & black screen fix

My first forum post... long, and possibly redundant, but I hope it helps somebody with the "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" Pop-up as well as the Black Screen after wake up issue...

After a new PC build with a fresh install of Windows 7/64bit (build7600)... I saw the pop-up for the 1st time while troubleshooting some nvidia driver updates -- things would go black momentarily while putting my newly installed 3D apps through their paces, but then come back the "Display driver stopped..." message. I suspect I had conflicting video driver files or registry settings. ( I was experimenting with more than one driver versions)
All troubles seemed to go away after uninstalling everything nvidia related (everything); running Guru3d.com's 'Driver Sweeper' after a boot to SAFE MODE; ...and finally a regular reboot and fresh install of the latest and greatest nvidia driver (Forceware 191.66)

All was right with the world until...
Black screen with a lonesome mouse arrow pointer after waking the system from sleep. I, like many folks I've read about, hear the system fans/disk powering up as normal, though little to show for it apart from the mouse pointer moving about.
My first impulse was to bring up the 'Windows Task Manager' which I prefer to do using Shift+Ctrl+Esc (rather than Ctrl+Alt+Del) ...I then noticed a subtle screen flicker and then presto, my desktop was back! ...along with the familiar pop-up about "Display driver stopped etc..."
This Task Manager call up worked nicely to resolve the black screen upon wake up trouble, but it lead me to suspect that since the system was coming up fine, but minus the graphics card/driver, there may be something screwy with all the new-fangled power saving features and settings that try to optimize power efficiencies on devices such as cpu/fans/HDs/graphics boards/etc.

So...
I seemed to have resolved both my black screen issue AND the "Display driver stopped..." alert by changing an advanced power setting related to the PCI Express slot within 'Power Options'.

Control Panel --> Power Options --> Select Power Plan
> Change Plan Settings (I kept it at 'Balanced')
>> Change Advance Power Settings
>>> (expand to) PCI Express
>>>> (expand to) Link State Power Management
>>>>> (select) OFF
Apply.

I would think that choosing 'High performance' power plan would work just as well (if not better), but I'd check the default PCI Express setting just the same.

While I was at it, after reading about some further Wake up issues, I also set...
Change Advance Power Settings > Sleep >> Allow Wake Timers >>> Settings: DISABLE

This worked for me. ...until of course it doesn't.

Hope to be useful.

Guys, as far as I can see, the problem happens to ALL platforms (AMD, nVidia, Intel)
and ALL video chips too.
I have brand new ASUS+Intel+HD4870+quite powerful PSU (which I've bought trying
to fix this issue!), but as soon as I installed Windows 7 and launched MW2 game, the
problem began, mostly in 3D games. (System was perfectly fine in WinXP)

So far the method with removing one of two memory modules helps. Other ones
like disabling some power/sleep options and switching Aero off did not work for me.

The problem is somewhere in Windows 7/DX11 + memory tandem
and together we can at least narrow the field of searching for solution.

What if we start a poll with multiple options like this:


The issue with "Driver Stopped..." solved when:

1A Power options changed. Intel MB, nVidia Graphic
1B Power options changed. AMD MB, nVidia Graphic
1C Power options changed. Intel MB, ATI Graphic
.
.
2A Memory module removed. Originally was - 2x2GB
2B Memory module removed. Originally was - 2x1GB
2C Memory module removed. Originally was - 3x1GB
.
.Etc


Please, add your own solutions to this list.

I reckon we shouldn't include Microsoft drivers and OS updates so far in this poll,
because it's not the solution. ATI card with ATI driver MUST work in Windows 7 DX11
environment, right?

Actually it's been a Vista problem for awhile as discussed here... The Display driver has stopped working - The Saga - Vista Forums

As well as here... “Display driver stopped responding and has recovered” - Rage3D Discussion Area and here... Please Fix! - Display Driver stopped responding Issue - Rage3D Discussion Area amonsgt other places.

And lets not forget Nvidia... Vista Forums - Search Results

There are many theories on the causes as well as fixes. While one fix might work for some, others find they don't work at all.

Good luck in finding your solution.
