Some people reported got an error message when he using his computer: Display driver stopped responding and has recovered.
Sometimes, when this error message comes out, the computer will get hang for some minutes and then BSOD or reboots.
It appears to be a graphic card driver issue, anyway.
Vista and Win7 use a feature called TDR. TDR baically gives the GPU 2 seconds to process what it is doing and display it on your monitor. If it fails to do so in 2 seconds you get the cool flash on the screen and the dreaded error message. In some cases, the situation get relief by giving TDR more time by setting registry value
1. Open REGEDIT
2. Using Windows 7, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMControlSet002ControlGraphicsDrivers
3. Once there you will most likely have to create a new DWORD (32bit users) or QWORD (64bit users). Name it TdrDelay.
4. Once created, change the value to 8. This will allow the GPU 8 seconds to respond instead of 2 seconds.
