Intel card

On the Intel control panel, where do I go to turn off VPU recovery?

1st we must ask, why do you want to turn it off? Your alternative will likely be a blue screen. You say intel card, do you mean intel motherboard? Your CPU graphics?

Are you talking about the dreaded "Driver Stopped Responding" Error? If so read on.. this is from my Tips on Troubleshooting Game Issues

Quote:
Error - Driver Stopped Responding And Recovered (ATI) or Display Driver nvlddmkm stopped responding (Nvidia) – Do any type of search on these errors and you will get hundreds of hits, even here. This issue started out in Vista and is now seen in Windows 7. As you see, it affects both card manufactures. There are many theories on the causes, as well as solutions, to this problem, but no singular fix seems to work for all. While one fix might work for some, others find they don't work at all. I will however suggest you look at…

I've already been told by people on here to fix by problem on a game that I play, I should try turning VPU recovery off. When I say Intel card I mean my Intel graphics card. Yes, that is the error I'm having sygnus, but people have told me to do this so I guess I want to try turning VPU recovery off.

Can you show me where someone told you to "turn it off" so I can understand what they're talking about???

If you read the links I've posted, there's really no one way to turn that error off. It's really going to take trial and error.

Incidentally, these errors are usually associated with ATI or Nvidia video cards; Haven't seen this error outside of those cards. Hmmm.

You could check out some of the suggestions I provide but since this is a laptop and you obviously can't replace the graphics card you may need to call HP for further help if you don't find a solution.

Sorry.

Yowanvista gave me this link: The nvlddmkm error - What is it? - NVIDIA Forums which says that the error is caused by windows timeout and recovery. Fishnbanjo told me that I need to disable the VPU recovery on my GPU control panel. I don't have an ATI card and nVidia is not showing up so I think Intel is my graphics card.

Yeah you do have an intel graphics card. Now if we figure out how to eliminate the VPU error we'd all be happy.

At any rate this TDR thing they're talking about requires editing of the Windows registry as you'll need to add the strings to modify the TDR settings. Be aware that this is for testing purposes and not recommended by Microsoft.

Registry Keys

The following registry keys are documented for testing purposes only. These registry keys should not be manipulated by any applications outside targeted testing or debugging.
Timeout Detection and Recovery of GPUs through WDDM

Once people found out about the registry hack it started spreading like wildfire without explaination... or understanding. Notice no one told you "how" to do it, or what's required.

OK rant over.

Here's some more info to look through...

I've seen that first link and already tried registry editing. The location for it doesn't seem to exist so I created my own keys and stuff but that didn't change anything. :/ So I can't turn of VPU recovery on Intel graphics cards? I'll try the other solutions in the other links in the meantime.

Yeah you do need to create those strings. Also I'm not surprised it didn't work, it's for testing and debugging purposes, and the average Joe doesn't have all the tools needed to properly use those strings.

I wish you luck in finding a solution as I know it's frustrating. Unfortunately a lot of folks, including me, have found that replacing their video card has fixed the problem. Since you're on a laptop that isn't an option you have so hopefully you’ll find another solution that works.

Good luck.
