Windows 7: Display Driver stopped responding and has successfully recovered

Yes, perfectly safe. HOWEVER, remember to uninstall your card in Safe Mode (It's called Safe Mode for a reason). Then when you reboot in normal windows, let your computer sit there for a few minutes until it recognizes your graphics card again. Then install the BETA drivers.

Widespread problem: stopped responding and has successfully recovered

Hi,
Can someone come with a better advice then Mintos45 just suggesting to update drivers? I have the same problem on two different computers with inter integrated graphics (intel i5), and new drivers did not solve the problem. I bought two different graphics card, disabled the integrated graphics, and problem persists. Microsofts wrote this fixit task, but all it does is extend timeouts, and does not solve the issue for my computers. It seems widespread with 11000000 hits on google.

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

Followed by a DxDiag report

Go into your bios and look at your memory settings for your motherboards ram. Not video memory for the card. The first thing i would try is to raise the setting for tRFC. If it is like 60 or something try raising it to 74 or 88 and test again. If it still does it try relaxing other memory timings a bit. Take note of your changes but tRFC is where i would start.

Something to consider is just because your computer will pass memtest or win 7 built in checker doesnt mean it wont crash while gaming. Your video card uses your motherboards ram as shared memory for textures and what not, and if timings are to tight you will have this problem.

DevoDave, Please dont respond if you have no knowledge whatsoever about the issue. It just pollutes the thread.

Did some poking around, and discovered that one of the things causing this issue was calls to WebGL from the browser. I disabled WebGL in Chrome, and the problem has gone away when using that browser. Not really a good solution, but maybe a hint at the real solution.
Please try this on your PC, and confirm.
Thanks

How: launch google chrome like this "chrome.exe -disable-webgl"
You can edit the icon properties to make this the default.

And as far as your concerned I wasnt replying to your post. Just an hour ago you were also looking for suggestions. Well BUB you can install and uninstall your drivers all day long if you want or disable your webgl if you think it will help you.

Goodluck!

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.
I had the same problem mainly while using the internet and games that use an internet connection and I updated my ethernet driver.

Hi there.

I recently started having this problem, and I'm not sure if anyone else out there found a solution, but I appear to have found one for me at least so I thought I'd share. Upon opening the system management portal and looking at the windows hardware log, I came across repeated hard disk failures, always relating to accessing the paging file. These seemed to directly precede the display adapter failure. So, one deleted page file later, no problems at all so far. I'm assuming it's somethig to do with the shared ram that the video card is using, though not sure if it's corrupted the page file or my disk has bad sectors (which is what the windows report suggested, however scandisk found no bad sectors).

Anyway, thought it might help some people to check.

P.S. Also, I noticed I got the problem a lot more when my desktop background was set to cycle as well - perhaps that was directly related to the pagefile issue, or maybe unrelated.
