Windows 7: Display drivers have stopped responding!

07 Aug 2012   #1

Windows 7
Display drivers have stopped responding!

I recently purchased this
I installed it and started experiencing some serious problems. When i do anything slightly stressful on the system (mostly gaming) the game runs fine but after a few minutes (sometimes seconds) into gaming the screen will freeze, go black, then come back again. I get a pop up that says "Display drivers have stopped working and have recovered". This is extremely aggravating and stressful for me seeing as ive read a few things on this problem and all the trouble shooting ive done has got me no where. Ive tried keeping the system cooler, adjusting the OC, giving the cpu a bit more voltage, updating drivers, and taking the radeon 6450 i had in (with dual graphics enabled). The motherboard i have in here is a Gigabyte A75M-S2V.

Have you tried reinstalling drivers for the graphics adapter? Try uninstalling from control panel and from Device Manager. Then restart the machine to let the PnP devices reinstall it themselves on their terms.

When installing a new processor, it's recommended to to do a clean install. Then my advice would be to remove any OC'ing and set it to the default settings. Then make sure that you have all the latest driver updated for you whole system along with all MS updates. Once you've done that, then try playing your game.

Then when you have your system is running smoothly, then you can start your OC'ing.
