Many Windows users have reported that they have seen an error telling them “Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered“. This error usually occurs when they are playing video games or opening applications that are using lots of graphics adapter resources.
This is an annoying issue. You can’t open your game or application with this error. And you are probably trying hard to find out a solution!
But don’t worry. It is possible to fix this error. You can try the methods below:
The error may occur because you are using the wrong graphics driver or it is out of date. You can try updating your graphics driver and see if this resolves your problem. To update your driver quickly, you can use Driver Easy.
Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.
You can download and install your drivers by using either Free or Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes only 2 clicks (and you get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee):
1) Download and Install Driver Easy.
2) Run Driver Easy and hit the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.
3) Click on the Update button next to the graphics card to download the latest and correct driver for it. You can also hit the Update All button at the bottom right to automatically update all outdated or missing drivers on your computer (this requires the Pro version — you will be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All).
The error may also result from the faulty graphics adapter you are using. You can try contacting the manufacturer of your computer or graphics adapter for more help. If your device is still under warranty, you can also ask the manufacturer to have it repaired or replaced.
