Windows 7: Display Driver Stopped responding

Display Driver Stopped responding

Dear all,

Recently, I have been given this error a lot.



Some times it will be able to recover, and most of the times it will just freeze and I will have to do a hard restart on my system.

Is there any solution for this problem? My graphics is Nvidia GeForce GTX 560.

Thank you!

We need more details.
Is it overclocked?
What kind of PSU
What motherboard.

Type of drivers?

To avoid stalling the help you can get, provide basic questions in the first post.

Have you tried uninstalling and doing a clean install of the latest graphics driver? It happened to me once or twice in the past because of driver problems.

Hey Plater.....you did not mention the RAM. How much are you using? Are you using multiple RAM sticks? If yes, try to run the PC with just one stick. Also, run a memtest overnite to check for errors on the memory.

Hi Plater,

It appears that you are not using the latest graphic drivers; corrupt drivers may also lead to this error. Please share if you've tried re-installing the 'display drivers'. If not, please remove the 'currently installed' display drivers/software; and try installing a fresh set of drivers.

You may find the following steps useful:
- Click 'Start' > Type 'devmgmt.msc' (without quotations) in 'Search Programs and Files' text-box and tap 'Enter' > (Device Manager page opens up) > Expand 'Display Adapters' category > Right click and uninstall 'nVidia related device' listed (Allow the removal of 'software' also, if prompted) > Follow through with the uninstall process > Restart the system when finished.

- Download and install the latest 'Display Driver' available for the 'nVidia card' installed (Find links below)
For 'Windows 7 32 bit': Drivers | GeForce
For 'Windows 7 64 bit': Drivers | GeForce

Hope this helps. Do reply with the findings.

Hello all, I have just tried to uninstall-reinstall my graphics driver. The problem still presents it self at random times. Sometimes it will crash during a movie, others will crash during normal web browsing. But the difference now is that instead of have a blank screen for around 2 seconds before that error message popping up, the screen freezes and there are patches of the screen with squared shaped "mis-color" pixels. This problem usually resolves itself after around 2-5 minutes of no input from me. I think that's the best way to describe what I'm experience now. It usually happens from 0-4 times a day and I have no idea what is triggering it since these events happens regardless of what I'm doing with the computer.

Sorry, I'm using 1 RAM stick at 1600 8gbs DDR3. Running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bits.

have you tried to update your graphic driver to the latest version? or did you just reinstalled the old driver? i used to have the same problem with you, especially when playing games, but after I updated my driver to the latest version, I notice that the problem no longer persists.

I have downloaded the latest driver from Nvidia.com and installed that driver instead of using my stock DVD driver that came with the card.
