Windows 7: Display Driver issue!

19 Jan 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Display Driver issue!


My display driver seems to be having issues. While watching videos online, or just sitting at my desktop doing nothing with absolutely zip running, my display driver will crash and recover.
Not really irritating or frusterating, as it doesn't seem to do it in any games(Dragon's age, mirror's edge, Fallout, etc'.). And I certainly play extensively.
But, it's worrying nontheless.

My rig is:
Window's 7 Ultimate, 64 bit
AMD Phenom II X4 925 Processor (Quadcore)
4 gigabytes of DDR3 1600 mhz as RAM
2x Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 graphic cards ran in Crossfire
And a ECS Elitegroup A790GXM-AD3 mobo.

All my drivers seem to be up to date. And I can't find any fixes. Event viewer states "Display driver atikmdag stopped responding and has successfully recovered."

And ideas on how to prevent/fix this?
