Display driver atikmdag stopped responding and has recovered.

So I've had this problem for a while now... Whenever I try to play a game like Eve or Counter Strike Source, it will freeze not long after the opening of the game (to sleep that I don't get to log in CSS after that I opened a server). I studied the problem of many things, tried everything and nothing really seems to work for me. I've updated all my drivers, made of many quickfixes on many sites. What solutions have all come with? Any help is greatly appreciated. (I have 4 GB of ram, processor intel duo core, ATI Radeon 3100, on Satellite L555D with windows 64 bit premium).


Don't forget to check with the AMD/ATI support & forums as you're probably not alone with the question.
Also check with the Game makers' Support and Forums that these problems could be known.

Reinstall the drivers for your video - do not use the scan for drivers - update
manually using the methods below. Be sure and download the Versions of Catalyst.

ATI drivers

It's my generic how updates of appropriate driver: (use this for video drivers)

This utility, it is easy see which versions are loaded:

-Free - DriverView utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system. For
each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver, description,.
version, product name, company that created the driver and more.

For drivers, visit manufacturer of emergency system and of the manufacturer of the device that are the most common.
Control Panel - Device Manager - Display Adapter - note the brand and complete model of your
video card - double - tab of the driver - write version information. Now click on UPdate Driver (this
cannot do anything as MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then do a right click - Uninstall - REBOOT
This will refresh the driver stack.

Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard if 3rd party with their
own the software and drivers and all other main drivers that you have.

Now go to the site of the manufacturer of system (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) (restoration) and then of the manufacturer of the device
(Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get their latest versions. (Look for the BIOS, Chipset and software)
updates on the site of the manufacturer of the system here.)

Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after each installation.

Always check in the Device Manager - tab drivers version you install actually shows up. This
because some restore drivers before the most recent is installed (particularly that audio drivers) so install a
pilot - reboot - check that it is installed and repeat if necessary.

Repeat to the manufacturers - BTW on device at the DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER - manually check by model.

Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

How to install a device driver in Vista Device Manager

If you update the drivers manually, then it's a good idea to disable the facilities of driver in the Windows updates,
This leaves ONE of Windows updates, but it will not install the drivers who are generally older and cause
questions. If updates offers a new driver and then hide it (right click on it) and then go look for new ones
manually if you wish.

  • Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has recovered successfully after sleep, and then blue screen

    original title: display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has recovered successfully after sleep, then BSOD.

    Well, if not some time ago, we got a Nvidia GeForce 240GT video card. We used an ATI Radion 3460 I think and it worked normally. Then when we got the nVidia card, we started to see the problems. Occasionally, he would show the blue screen of death. I tried to reproduce the error and came to an interesting conclusion. Whenever I put the computer in sleep mode turn off mode 'sleep', I wait a bit and then the login screen appears. I connect and it shows me the "display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and was recovered successfully. Then after that, if I go on YouTube and try to watch a video, the computer hangs and a BSOD would leap upward. I am angry. I used "standby mode" so and with the new map video, everything got worse. I tested this problem on Windows Vista and 7. And btw, the drivers are up-to-date, I made sure the driver nvlddmkm himself file is up-to-date, and temperatures are perfect.

    update the drivers from NVIDIA. Also make sure that your power supply is powerful enough to handle the new nVIDIA card. "A programmer is just a tool that converts the caffeine in code" Deputy CLIP - http://www.winvistaside.de/

  • display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered

    So, about a week ago I checked the nVidia website to see if there was no news available drivers for my card (XFX GeForce 9600 GSO) and there was. Installiation was simple then a restart. After reboot, I thought that I would play Call of Duty 4 and after 5-10 minutes of play my screen goes black and it appears with a small warning sign in the region of noticfication "display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and was recovered successfully."

    The pc will be a blue screen with a nvlddmkm.sys error or it goes off and nothing will work
    forcing me to turn off by the power button. I had never met moyenessentiel before you install the latest drivers.
    After looking for some fix on google, I couldn't find
    something solid. So I opened the Device Manager and clicked on graphics cards
    and redeployed the pilot.
    Still no luck. Most of the games I played this error still appeared. I tried all the drivers on the nVidia site
    that are suitable for my card. The drivers on thecd also included witht that card and they do not seem to work either.
    I installed the drivers with Windows Live OneCare disabled, disabled UAC and nothing running
    in the background, such as recommended by nVidia. Still nothing works. I have the Sims 3, Call of Duty 4,
    Call of duty: World at War, Halo 2 for Vista and HAWX installed. The only one
    game I havn't had the error is H.A.W.X

  • driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has recovered

    Okay, do I still need to remind you all how bad M$ support sucks? I don't think that's clearly stating the obvious...

    Here's my problem: every once in a while, I get the error message in the title, when reading older or newer games, such as FEAR or Gears of War. My laptop is a GX 700 MSI, 3 GB of RAM, 2.1 Ghz dual core CPU Intel Penryn with 8600 GT Nvidia graphics card. Don't DARE EVEN tell me I should do this and that and I need to search the forum or on the web or go to another M$ SupportCenter... was it made... Here is my list of research on M$ answers:


    I made all this possible described here: more recent nvidia drivers installed, placed my computer laptop in a cooler, conducted tests of RAM to find errors, wrote using MSI (which of course I redirected to software manufacturers) and even went to a dedicated support site Vista... but guess what? M$ is not accepting my activation key for Vista Edition home premium, despite the fact that it came with my laptop and it is 100% authentic... need proof? All updates for Vista are already installed, including the WGA, so there is no problem regarding this key... BUT M$ SUPPORT SITE SAYS THAT'S NOT GOOD! and so I can't continue in my futile quest for an answer to this old recurring problem, which gives not less than 11,300 links in Google... So bad, I didn't have the download option of the screenshot with the errors, I guess that it would have been the only laughable portion of this terrible experience...

    I want all you know that there is nothing wrong with my laptop. (Oh wait, I might have made a mistake: he now has Vista installed...) It worked perfectly while XP has been installed, but the disaster called Vista ruined my life... I am a Linux engineer, so I'm certainly not a noob when it comes to troubleshooting my PC. I wonder how much frustration someone knowing the slightest IT must have when trying to get help from M$, having to click through all the links that don't lead no where and when they do not lead somewhere, it's a dead end or "opinion" useless...

    So after spitting my guts with hate, here is my application: what is the email address, I can use to DIRECTLY send M$ details on the problem? This forum is absolutely no help and has been so for some time now (messages on this case has gone on for 2007...), so I lost all faith in humanity and I ask something USEFUL...... is a simple e-mail address - this too much to ask?

    In many cases, users solved the same type of question by install the old driver, uninstall the existing version and using the generic driver as well as update the driver through Windows updates.

  • Display driver igfx stopped responding and has recovored.

    I installed some updates 'important' my computer keeps pushing me to install today and shortly after my screen started going black, for 5 to 30 seconds at a time at random intervals. After returning to normal display mentions a "display driver igfx", I would like to repair or replace this driver if possible, but don't know how. If there is anything I can do I appriciate it.

    Hello Wodahsdrol,

    You should try to update the drivers for your video card.

    I suggest that you go to your computer manufactuers website and download the latest drivers for your video card.

    See this article which will give you different options to upgrade the drivers:


    If nothing works, try to uninstall and reinstall the graphics card.


    1. click on start. In the start search box type "devmgmt.msc", and then press ENTER.
    2. expand "Graphics cards", double-click the entry to the display device.
    3. click on the "Driver" tab, click "Uninstall".
    4. click on start. In the start search box type "appwiz.cpl", and then press ENTER.
    5 remove the related entries the display device.

    Reinstall the driver with your driver CD.

    Alternatively, you can try to uninstall the driver from Device Manager, then go to the computer or the device factory site download the latest driver for your network card and install it.

    Thank you

  • display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and successfully recovered

    I have the latest nvidia drivers installed, dual-core amd athlon 64, nvidia 9800 gt grahpics, good power and cooling system, sufficient memory capacity.  stop crashing to this display while gaming, nvidia insist it is a problem with vista 64. everything else works fine. Please notify

    Try one of the older nVidia drivers.  Last year, 182 version was an everyone has liked the best.  Because I don't have any nVidia cards in any PC, I can't tell you what is the current favorite.  Also make sure your power supply is sufficient to keep the freshness of system and powered.

  • WOW/graphics error "display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and was retrieved successfully."

    Help, please. On the next computer I have terrible crash problems while playing WoW. Critical error WOW States: "not enough memory to process command - 11 538 bytes requested."

    When running 3D Mark Vantage I can reproduce the "display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and was recovered successfully.

    Processor Intel Core i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz
    Details of the component
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295 graphics
    4 095 MB total graphics memory available graphic set
    Main hard drive 53GB free (140 GB Total)
    64 bit version with service PAC 2 Vista Ultamate

    Forums are full of posters indicating that it is a Vista / Nvidea incompatibility problem that has been around for years and that the problem is not treated. I tried everything I can think of, check the RAM to download new drivers, to the removal of unnecessary records of WOW. I reinstalled everything, run each diagnostic tool in the plane, patches downloaded, checked for the virus and still no help.

    I am currently able to play WOW on the smaller graphics settings and avoid cities. With this level of equipment, it's a shame, really, I should be able to do more.

    Did anyone have any suggestions of what I can do at this point?

    OK, I did a lot of research on this issue.  The problem lies in the Blizzard, most of the time.

    World of Warcraft is a set of 32 bits.  Because it is strictly 32 bit, it only has access to 2 gigabytes of memory.  Windows manages the other 2 giga of addressable space.

    Most of the developers of games flag their games before the compile time to use larger amounts of memory.  Blizzard doesn't do this, because their anti-cheat system and third-party tools rely on the 32-bit addressing and address 64-bit would mean that they must all be rewritten.

    What happens in the game, is that your footprint large capacity memory card is mapped in the game.  In general, it is when your settings are high, because it uses the most memory, which explains why the game is playable when you use minimal settings.  Given that the configuration of your particular graphics card uses close to 2 gig of RAM itself, quickly force you the game short of memory addressable space.

    To resolve this problem, you may be able to play with reduced settings.  Reduce your resolution is usually the best way to limit the use of memory, since it increases exponential use RAM when you increase the resolution.  You might have to play with different parameters.  You can open the upward Task Manager and monitor the use of your memory WoW game to see where the sweet spot is maintaining your memory under control.

    Blizzard will have to make the difficult choice to eventually allow access extended memory.  More people are buying equipment like yours, this problem will be more widespread.

  • Display driver stopped responding and has recovered

    Product: HP Pavilion dv7-6015tx Entertainment Notebook PC

    OS: Windows 7 32-bit

    Status: Clean installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32 - bit Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit


    I had several cases where the computer seems 'lag '.

    then, after a few flickers on my screen, Windows would give the error:

    "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered."

    There are still effects after this message.

    When dragging windows, scrolling top-down graphics etc. continue to Flash.

    This isn't all in hardcore, the GPU was not operating at high temperatures.

    Interestingly, I don't have this problem when I'm in the middle of hardcore games.

    The CPU was not under heavy load, the CPU was not working at high temperatures either.

    I checked the temperature with thermal control (HWiNFO32).

    I have a lot of resources, 1223MB of RAM to spare.

    I also have lots of HARD disk space too.

    I installed the latest version of the graphics driver for my product: AMD graphics driver high definition,.

    but the problem persists.

    Help, please!


    I understand your frustration, I had the same problem, I really did, for centuries!

    Try this:

    Do not go on the AMD website for a video driver. those who do not work properly for some reason any...

    Download on the HP site specific to your HP product, for example, I have a dv7 6015tx with 32-bit windows.

    Then I'd go to: dv7-6015tx drivers

    If you still have the drivers on AMD ATI Web site, uninstall them, restart.

    Go to the HP site where you can find specific drivers for your product HP, installation, restart.

    It seems trivial, but it's IMPORTANT and most of the time to restart after uninstalling and installing.

    It worked for me, hopefully it will erase your questions, good luck.
