After certain update of my graphics card driver I no longer have a video playback on my video players (including WMP), besides VLC. All the other video player are just able to play the sound of the video file, Nut not the video (the screen just stays black).The thing is that I didn't have this problem previously,, all my video players were able to play all the same video files, which they can't now!
I have the latest AMD Radeon HD video drivers installed. As I mentioned I didn't have this problem before,, with a previous versions of the AMD graphics card driver. This happened to my laptop a while ago already,, Since I have this problem I updated my video drivers 5 or 6 times at least, and no change so far !!!
As I mentioned I have the problem for some time already, during this time I re-installed my Windows couple of times, plus I even changed the version of the windows (7 to 8), for the moment I have the last version of video driver installed, I haven't installed ANY codecs.
I can probably find out from which update of a graphic card driver it started to happen and install the previous version, but I don't wanna miss out on the benefits of the driver updates, since I can still play normally videos on VLC (Only! cuz its probably have integrated codecs?!)
All the other graphic card related tasks are perfectly normal, I play games and so on.
Here is the problem... everything boots just fine and runs with 2 of the GPU's installed. I have the latest AMD 13.12 drivers, and the AMD APP SKD installed. When I add the 3rd GPU though, windows will auto detect it as a Radeon 7900 with the caution sign, AND/OR a r9 200 series card, also with the caution sign, most times BOTH. Then it randomly freezes the system. A couple of times I got it to run long enough just by luck I guess, to install the 13.12 drivers on the 3rd GPU, but then in a few minuites the system would freeze again.
2 GPU's run just fine, the problem only shows up when the 3rd card is installed, and it happens on any of the 4 16x slots, or both 1x slots on the MOBO. It doesn't matter if the GPU's are directly on the MOBO, or on 1x16 risers. There are plenty of folks running this set up with up to 6 GPU's, so I know it can be done, but I must be missing something somewhere in the windows set up.
I've got a bit of a strange issue that I haven't had with previous OSes on this PC. I'm running a Dell OptiPlex 380 with Win 8 x64 at the office and I have to run 2 video cards for all of my screens. I have a GeForce 8400GS in the PCI-E slot and a GeForce 6200 in the PCI slot.
Previous to the Win 8 install, it worked fine. Booted exactly as I had shut it off. Now, with 8 - it's killing my PCI-E card presumably when it puts the screens to sleep when I leave for the day. So I'm coming in to all of my windows being moved to the PCI card's monitor (only one hooked to it) and I have to reboot to get PCI-E card to come back.
If I check the screen properties, I see only the screen hooked to the PCI card. I've changed the setting in the BIOS for the first video card to Auto and also tried the PCI-E selection and it's the same either way.
Why on earth would it default to the PCI card rather than the PCI-E card?
I actually think it's integrated, how do I do it? According to running a random game on systemrequirementslab.com (Dead Island), my dedicated video RAM is 32mb. It's not a custom built, I bought it from the store.
Here are specs according to dxdiag: System Info: Operating System: Windows 8 64-bit (6.2, Build 9200) System Manufacturer: Dell Inc. System Model: Inspiron 5323 BIOS: A08 Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-3217U CPU @ 1.80GHz (4 CPUs), ~1.8GHz Memory: 6144MB RAM Page file: 3252MB used, 5310MB available DirectX Version: DirectX 11
I have 64MB for video memory reported in BIOS but my Adapter shows only 32MB, it's normal and I am looking at two different things or something isn't right, I have the latest Intel HD4000 drivers installed.
There is an option in my bios to change the dedicated video memory of my integrated graphics card.Is there any problem if I increase it?(Currently it is 64 MB, there is maximum 1024 MB available in the option).
Running win 8 and installed Windows 8.1 and device manager told me windows shut down my video card (560 Ti) because of a problem and began running default drivers. I tried everything from removing and reinstalling drivers, reseating the video card, changing slots, etc....
As soon as I reverted back to Windows 8, EVERYTHING ran as fine as before.

Today our Windows 8.1 system stopped and crashed when watching a video on the internet. The system was not able to restart and the screen has green lines. Please see some photo's. Once I got a message (of which I did not make a photo) about error video ftr or something like that. Cannot refresh installation since I have no Windows 8/Windows 8.1 dvd. It was a download from MS (image) and upgrade to Windows 8.1 When I start windows normally webcam light flashes and HD light flashes but screen remains black.
What steps to take? I cannot see the logfile since I cannot connect to the PC from my iMac anymore.
I'm not sure if this problem is with the GPU, but I think it might be a good place to start.
Up until recently, I was running Windows 8.1 on a custom build with the following: Athlon II X4 610E processor, Silverstone NT01-E cooler, MSI 890-GX MoBo, 4GB OCZ DDR3/1333 RAM, Zotac GeForce GT 240 GPU, AuzenTech X-Fi Home Theater Sound Card, Western Digital 2TB Caviar Green, Corsair GT 120 SSD, Samsung SH-B083 ODD, and Silverstone NightJar ST40F PSU.
With this build I noticed that there was a certain tendency for the screen to "flicker" when the video changed (ie, starting a Netflix video, a Hulu video, movie on WMC, etc). It generally occurs at the start of a video and it's conclusion, being most annoying on Hulu because it does this at the start of a segment, just before the commercial break, and during the commercials.
Since I'm transitioning to gaming on my PC, I replaced several components, upgrading to a EVGA GeForce GTX 770 DUAL SuperClocked GPU, Intel Core i5-4570 processor (stock cooler), CORSAIR Vengeance LP 16GB (2 x 8GB) RAM, ASUS Q87M-E LGA 1150 MoBo, and CORSAIR CX series CX600 600W PSU. I also reinstalled Windows 8.1.
I had hoped that this would clear up my issue as a side benefit, but that is not the case. In fact, in some instances it's frequency has increased, mostly only occurring at the times I've come to expect, but I was watching a Hulu video just a few minutes ago and the number of times the screen flickered was nearly unbearable.
So I've been trying to update my graphics card. Before I ever got the notification for the update and tried to install it, I could play minecraft, and star craft, and watch Netflix video. When I did install, and was given the failed due to I/O error box, I couldn't play any games or watch any Netflix. Don't know what to do to fix this. Since, I've gone to my manufacturers website and re-installed my driver, but I think the real problem is seeing how I cant connect it. It always says it failed due to the I/O error, so I cant connect it to the video card or something.
My computer is a Toshiba. other info:
Model: Satellite L875DProcessor: AMD A6-4400M APU with Radeon(TM) HD Graphics 2.70 GHzPlenty of RAM (only 5 month old computer)
In Device Manager under Display Adapters It says Microsoft Basic Display Adapter. I just need to know how to change it. I've gone in through device manager, pressed update driver, chose to do it manually and choose a signed driver. When I choose My AMD Radeon Drive and it attempts to install, it always says it failed due to an I/O error. This has been going on for a week or so, and I thought I could fix it, but nothing works.
I had opened up GeForce Experience and automatically updated my graphic drivers.The updater crashed while updating.Tried to update again and it gave me the message saying my driver was up to date no need to update.Opened up Steam and tried to play a few games and they all crashed. I also noticed games outside steam were very sluggish.I checked device manager and only my onboard video card was shown. My high performance card was no longer listed under display.
So I uninstalled GeForce experience and the driver then reinstalled an earlier driver version (I could just install the previous version and it should 'roll back').Same problem, my games would crash and things were slow.Removed those drivers and reinstalled earlier ones.Rinse and repeat removing and installing different version drivers 3 times. After being advised not to use GeForce Experience to update my drivers and to go to the manufacturer website I did so. I removed my current video driver and installed the one I downloaded from manufacturer.
Throughout this whole event certain drivers make my video card not appear in device manager and require me to install a different driver on it to get the card to display. Everything worked 100% fine until GeForce Experience crashed on me.
Currently; my video card is shown in device manager the driver seems to be installed and my games do in fact work. The problem is the FPS rate is extremely low. Before this issue I was having around 240 FPS inside certain steam games which I'm now getting 80. Before I updated the graphics driver my entire laptop worked extremely well and I've yet to have any issues. With that being said; I believe that if I could completely uninstall the graphic driver and reinstall the one I had before all this mess occurred things would be back to norm.
How to figure out what version I used to have and I'm not so sure I'm uninstalling the driver completely. (I'm in device manager just selecting uninstall) I'm willing to roll back my laptop a few days but I do not have restore point created. Maybe the driver is not installed correctly?
A different way to uninstall the driver or maybe a way to freshly install the video card, I don't know. Any simple way to restore my laptop to the way it was when I got it I'm willing to do that as a last resort. Everything I have is backed up.

Every time I try to download the HD7310 AMD driver instead I get a program that wants to charge me to auto update all my drivers.
I just want to download the latest Windows 8.0 64 bit driver for HD7310. I'm on a Laptop and the video text is horrid. I have catalyst software installed but every time I try to adjust brightness and/or contrast it looks nothing like the sample page. It gets progressively worse the more I attempt to adjust it. I can't believe it's this tough to get legible text on a monitor in this day and age.
I have to reinstall Windows 8 on my laptop for some reason. So after installation finished I went to Device Manager for Installing Drivers. After all the other drivers like Chipset, Network, Audio etc, I went to the Install the Display Driver. There I noticed that under the Display tab my NVIDIA GT 650M is already listed but usually if any Device driver is not installed then it will be shown as Unknown Device or Standard VGA Adapter. But here it shows that it is working and one more Thing I noticed is that in the display tab it was written:-
NVIDIA GT 650M (Microsoft Corporation-WDDM 1.2)
So my question is that should I install the NVIDIA driver from my ASUS Driver And Software Utility Disk or should I keep it as it is? I have heard somewhere that WDDM drivers works better than any other Driver with Windows 8. Is it true? I didn't get any Performance Fall or any BSODs etc and games are also working.
My new Acer laptop has very disappointing screen and video quality. The screen resolution is maxed-out at 1366 x 768 with Intel HD Graphics 4000. Those specs should be just fine for great visuals. My old desktop didn't come close to that but I could watch Youtube videos very well with no pixeling of image. Acer tech support said "new graphics driver download" and I did that , to no avail. Setting adjustments etc.? My wife's 3 year old Acer has better screen quality than my new one.
My system is a Windows 8 x64 Pro with Boot Camp 5 running on a 2011 Macbook Pro. I'm experiencing Windows crashes and distorted screen images with artifacts (see attachment #1) almost every time I start programs that require heavy video-processing (e.g.: games). The problem also happens, even if rarely, at random without doing anything particular.

As you see, it really looks like a video card problem related to atikmpag.sys. I think in cases like this the first thing to try is updating the drivers but unfortunately, since I'm running Windows on Boot Camp, it looks like there aren't suitable drivers apart from the ones I'm already using. I tried to install the ATI CCC 12.8 beta 2 (that is the only thing that I can run) that seem to suit my system, but that didn't work.
I have been suggested to look into the power settings of the video card (because they may lead to system instability), and specifically I tried playing a bit with the AMD PowerPlay - Technology in the CCC. Anyway, when I open the tab, the lists show up as blank and there is really no option I can work on (see attachment #2). It looks like my video card doesn't support this feature, even if I think it definitely should like it says in the AMD page: AMD PowerPlay.
I have a very serious issue with my brand new Lenovo IdeaPad Y500 GT 650M SLI system (specs at the bottom) . I can't play games at all because my system will lock up as soon as I enter the game, requiring a hard reset. My Windows Action Center is filled with Video Hardware Error reports. Is this because of a bad video card or is it a driver/software issue? I am on a clean install of Windows 8 Pro and have already tried the 314.22 WHQL and 320.00 BETA drivers. Nothing is overclocked.
My problem is that I can't change resolution on my laptop's display with win 8. It's quite an old, Toshiba Satellite M70. I installed win 8 directly from XP. Everything is working fine except this. I tried to install the old drivers in compatibility mode, but says the system requirement is not enough. Do I have any chance to make it work?
i bought new computer few days ago.i have sapphire HD 7750 2gb ddr3 - and im installed the driver for that by the CD but after i want to play some games . i get this massage Display driver stopped responding and has recovered.

Now when I go to install the VGA driver I get a dam error message
* This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing this software *.
Yesterday I was playing Dota 2 when suddenly I got a black screen and "display driver has stopped working and has recovered."
Right after, I tried to open the game again. There was no way of getting it working.
Any other game was also not working. The first thing I did was, of course, trying to reinstall the driver.
I tried to install the lastest driver (337.50 beta) and I got only "installer has failed". I also tried with many other older drivers and such, with no result.
Other things I tried:
Clean install (from custom install options)Hard clean install (Deleting all nvidia files before)Display Driver Uninstaller safe mode + reboot and install (same error)Install in safe mode (installer error)Register again WMI files (nothing changed). Take ownership of various folders containing drivers (nothing changed)Directly install INF files using devmgmt (gives error code 28) Changing some registry values regarding vbscript that fixed it for other people. Use Windows Update. "1 update was not installed" + error 80070002sfc /scannowRollback from devmgmtRestore to a early system point where it was working (couldn't restore, no matter what point I choose)
Nothing worked. It just won't install. Now I'm stuck with Microsoft base driver and can't play anything.
Here's the installer log, the only part with errors: Log (full log attached)
Event viewer shows nothing.

I think it's probably a miracle if I get this working without refresh/reinstall Windows.
I have an Acer Aspire 5515 with an AMD Athlon 2650eprocessor (64 bit) however, I have installed the 32 bit version of Windows 8 Pro. I cannot locate a driver for the ATI Radeon Xpress 1200 Graphics card that is compatible with Windows 8 32 bit. Acer's website is no support, since they only ever sold the Aspire 5515 with XP or Vista 64 bit systems, therefore they cannot provide what I need.
AMD's website is useless. It's auto-detect system for determining which graphics card and operating system I'm using is incompatible with Windows 8, and there is no method for ,e to type in which card and OS I have (you can only select from pull down menus, and the 1200 series and Windows 8 are not listed). Following the links to contact their technical support take you to a video on how to determine what graphics card you have, then right back to the beginning all over again. Worthless.
ATI says I can run a Vista driver in Windows 7, but I can't even find a Vista driver in 32 bit, and I'm using Win 8, not 7. I'm to the point where I'm going to install Windows 7 64 bit and be done with it.
I amm using windows 8.1 64 bit and everytime I open Photoshop cs6 for the time after a boot I get this message 'Display driver has stopped working but has recovered', my system can handle photoshop so I know thats not the problem. My graphics card is a AMD Radeon HD 8330.
