7950 "Display driver has stopped responding and recovered" *solved* - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I'm having the same problem and tried out this registry fix from nanoprobe. I also tried the auto-fix at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2665946/en-us, but the problem is still there. Sometimes I can play a game for hours with just 2-3 blackouts, other times it happen every 5 minute.

My graphics-card is a ASUS Directcu II TOP HD 7770 (GPU: 1170Mhz/Mem: 1150Mhz, this is stock from ASUS) have they ocerclocked the card too much? I logged the temperature while in game, and every time it goes black the temperature reaches about 68-70C max.. It also seems like I have to manually change the fan speed because even at 60-70C the fan speed, on auto, only goes up to about 30% max. When I set it to 100% manually it sounds like a vaccumcleaner, but still it eventually blacks out, so I'm not sure if it is the temps, and that would be sad because I bought this card so I didn't have to worry about OC'ing my self, as I currently don't know much about it.

I have tried to install Windows 7 all over, with the latest driver (13,1, not beta). Other than the registry fix in this thread, are there any of you guys who know what else I can try? I think I saw another thread, but I can't find it, it said something about editing something in a file to "30000". That probably didn't tell you anything, but maybe someone know what I'm referring to tongue.gif

It's a known issue in windows. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff553893%28v=vs.85%29.aspx
I've applied this fix to all my Win7 machines.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Watchdog]
"DisableBugCheck"="1"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Watchdog\Display]
"EaRecovery"="0"

Would this work with windows 8?

Since it's a known issue in Win7, they probably fixed it in Win8, maybe you have another problem? smile.gif

As to my recent post, I said it was clocked to 1170mhz stock, but after checking ASUS product site I found out that it's supposed to be 1120Mhz, so i clocked it down and I think the problem is solved in my case.

I can confirm this issue isn't fixed by default in Windows 8.

The registry hack worked though.
