Preferred Solution: Display Drivers Not Available

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

And Only Because Of That I am not able to open any game or sofware which requires display graphics. Any suggestions are most welcomed.

Last week I tried to update my ati 5870 drivers with the latest 10.11. I had 10.9 so far so good.
My problem is that with these drivers I got this message from windows : display drivers have stop responding and they've been recoveres (or something similar).
Same happened with drivers 10.10.
I had to roll back to drivers 10.9 and everything still runs fine.
I'm a bit sad since my computer is brand new (built it in august 2010), no overclock, nothing strange installed, and mostly used for World of Warcraft gaming. I like to keep my computer clean and I'm not used to test or stress or overclok it, but just to play my fav game.

My overall system :
mobo : ASUS p67 deluxe Vs
on i7 920
6 giga ram corsair
vga ATI Gigabyte HD 5870
SSD HD with WIN 7 64 Pro
Raptor HD with only World of Warcraft installed
1 tera HD for storage

My system runs fine with these drivers 10.9, but I'd like to keep it update also for the online game which is constantly updating to newer versions.

I kindly ask you to give me a solution to this issue of mine that is preventing me from sleeping....

Thanks a lot

Blue hi

New drivers are released to fix problems. they arent any faster, or better. Sometimes when they fix one problem they create another so why the urgent need to be on 10.11? Might be slower or not work at all

Latest Crimson Edition Drivers seems to crash repeatedly on desktop "Display Driver has stopped and has recovered" again and again once you hit the desktop, sometimes when you run a game or something that is related to the graphics. The only solutions was to Disable the drivers, downgrade to Win 7/8.1 or install a 14.12 Omega which is what I'm using right now. I've tried using DDU and TdrDelay, still no good. Right now the 14.12 omega is stable but playing games doesn't seem to give me a good framerate since it's outdated. Any workaround or reason why it crashes?

Right now I just reformatted my harddrive and reinstalled windows and downloaded all the windows updates.

But there was no display driver update as I expected.
I am using the standard display adapter on my motherboard and it only right now allows 1 resolution and 2 color settings (16 and 2 colors).

Anyone know where I can get updated drivers for it? I know they exist since I had them before I reformatted the disk.


A:Display Drivers

You have no display driver installed and are using the standard windows vga driver.
If it is an onboard vga card you need to post the name and model of the board.
If it is a modular card you need to post the name and model of the card.

Once done someone is sure to help you out & the problem is nearly resolved.

When Windows 8 is RTM does that mean the WMMD display drivers will no longer be used? Afterburner,an MSI Gpu overclocking utility will not work with the WMMD drivers. Also I noticed when I use Passmark performance test, on the Cpu portion I get scores as if I had it overclocked to 4.5 GHz. at stock clocks yet when I run 3DMark 11 I get abysmal Cpu scores.Any insight would be welcomed.Thanks

A:RTM display drivers

Well it's always been the case that the shipping drivers are bare bones and don;t support a lot of or any vendor spefcific features.

So I'm not sure that Windows 8 will be any different from 7, vista or XP. It's pretty much expected that you need to install the manufacturers real drivers in order to get full functionality. D3 and another 3d game would not even run with the included nvidia drivers with windows 8 I seem to recall. Installed the latest from the nvidia website and everything I've tried so far works fine.

I have a dell dimension 4400 with a lcd samsung screen purchased awhile after i got the computer. It came with this program called natural color. my display drivers are acting up (cant change screen resolution, the color is only 4 bit) and when i tried to install the new drivers it said ''cannot find the hardware'' or something. Then when i log in on vga mode it looks normal (even tho its still 4 bit) and i get an error saying ''naturalcolorload'' then the error is ''createdc()failed'' does this have anything to do with the color being 4 bit?

Hello, I've been trying to install the new ATI 13.1 drivers for my 7770's but during mid install my monitor goes black and never returns. I have waited for an hour, just to make sure its not still installing, but it still doesn't come back.
This is not my first time installing drivers, its just not working this time and I have no idea why. I have tried installing it multiple times in both crossfire and non crossfire settings. (I do not have my cards or CPU overclocked)
*Edit: I have also tried using my HDMI with the same result*

Each time after I try to install I have to hard reboot my computer and do a system restore.

Current Drivers are at 12.10

Specs are:
MB: Gigabyte 970A-UD3
GPU: 2 ATI 7770's in crossfire
CPU: AMD 6 core FX 6100
RAM: 16 GB
Monitor: Asus 24" VS247 using DVI in 1920x1080

A:No display after installing ATI 13.1 drivers

you could try the 13.2 BETA:
AMD Catalyst 13.2 BETA (12.100.0 January 1) Unofficial - Forums

it cured my problem with Cyberlink Blu-Ray playback
- kept giving me a very dark (almost black) screen

..oddly enough - DVD playback wasn't affected.. (?)

the 13.2 BETA seems to run OK, though it's an unofficial release at the moment,
so I guess you have to take your chances..

no problems, so far..

Have you tried uninstalling your graphics drivers in safe mode and restarting your PC with only the Basic drivers installed ? also you could try uninstalling previous drivers, in some cases certain games or programs can install additional updates that can cause conflicts. If all else fails you could try a clean install of win7 on a different hard drive to rule out a software or driver conflict.

So, I just upgraded my computer to windows 7 professional 32-bit. The hard drive was reformatted so there isn't much on it. Its been running for about 3 days now and has not been running properly from day one. It just freezes up and the screen goes black randomly. I get an error message that tells me the display drivers have stopped responding and recovered. It happens pretty often and I everytime I've tried to play a video it starts to act crazy. I have an EVGA Nvidia Geforce 9400GT 1GB Graphics card and I was using the 275.33 drivers but someone suggested going to a previous driver so now I am running 266.58. Is anyone else having this problem or does anyone know of a solution? I am in desperate need of help.

A:Display Drivers Keep Crashing.

The fix is generally to completely remove the previous driver installation.
(and the nvidia control panel)

Using this utility in safe mode - - Driver Sweeper

Then reboot normal and reinstall the latest driver again.
This actually happens often in all versions of windows and with both nvidia and ati.
The main problem is ..well if there is a problem their uninstallers/installers don't actually function quite the way they should.

Anyhow give that a shot and see if it cleans you up.
If not we'll go to the more complex steps.

The system is set up to switch between the 2 depending on whether you are on battery or AC power, and depending on the graphics needs of what you are doing. You should have a choice to configure by right clicking on the desktop (see 1st link)

whats the difference between
forceware drivers and detonator

A:Nvidia display drivers?

Forceware drivers are the newest, just a new name, basically. Although it seems that I have read somewhere that they are new from the ground up. They've been out for a while and went through quite a few driver versions. They are both nVidia drivers. If you are thinking about going to the latest driver, use the Forceware driver.

Unless you like to play around with Beta drivers, and like to change drivers a lot, I would suggest you use the latest official drivers from nVidia, which are Forceware.

As of two days ago, my comptuer started flickering, and sometimes the screen would just turn black. I can't open any games or anything that relies on a display driver. It says both my display drivers are disabled because there is an error. My video cards are both Nvidia GenForce 9800 GX2. Someone suggested I should download and install updates, but everytime I do it either does absolutely nothing or my screen goes black in the middle of installation and I have to reboot my computer. Both the drivers are now uninstalled. Any self help information you guys could give me before I have to resort to calling in a technician? :/

A:Can't update display drivers


Both the drivers are actually now installed, but still showing an error and disabled.

Some additional information: When I start up the computer, there are blues dots on the screen, if that changes anything. I've only had my computer for 2 years.

I have the Nvidia GeForce 256 vid card, on a Windows 98 system. I have a game called Project IGI that needs an older Nvidia driver set to even play this game on my system (This according to Eidos Help Support). However this is not a gaming question it is a hardware question.

I have a T.V. card installed on my PC. If I install the older driver for the game I cant use the t.v. card.
If I use the updated driver for the T.V. card, I cant play the game.

My question then is...
Is there any way to install the 2 different display drivers for the SAME vid card, and then just use the one I want for either the T.V. card or the game?
Someone suggested setting up a Hardware Profile- Is that a possibility, and if so how would I do it?

After recently Formatting and re-installing windows 98se on a friends PC, i have come to realise they have no idea what graphics card they have, the drivers were installed before but now im stuck, and i have no idea of the make or model.
Sice they do not use there PC for gaming, i was wondering about drivers.
The standard windows driver allows the graphics card to display upto 640x480 and 16 colours, is there any way for me to get some standard drivers that allow me to crank the resolution up to 1024x768 with 16bit high colour?

I rcently bought a 22" LCD widescreen Viewsonic monitor va2226w

When I tried to install the drivers with the cd that came with it it gave me the error message saying unable to install drivers. I tried to install manually by updating the Plug and Play Monitor driver and choosing the specific location. But it said that it wasn't good.

I have a S3 Graphics ProSavageDDR on-board video card and Windows XP SP2. Does this have something to do with it?

Right now the pixels are kind of blurry and I can't put it to 1680x1050 resolution.

What should I do to resolve the problem?

It's frustrating cuz this should be an easy task!

A:Cannot install Display drivers

It looks to me like you probably have an older machine. Yes? I can help you with blurry fonts but as far as your resolution goes, you maybe SOL.

For the fonts go to: control panel>display>appearance tab>effects Under "use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts," choose ClearType.

As far as your resolution goes, there could be some updated drivers out there.

I have a 22" wide screen monitor and never installed the drivers that came with the monitor. I just plugged it in.

Ive been having a lot of crashes (mostly freezes and display problems while playing games - no problems at all while playing Worms: Armageddon though as this one doesnt use DirectX afaik) as nicely described here and sometimes after freeze BSOD popped up so here i am as i still believe its related to software. Today ive accidentaly restarted PC while BSOD was creating minidump and decided to create a thread over here so maybe its possible for troubleshooting.

Try this

1st check with your mobo website for the drivers, and then here
Update graphics drivers:
AMD :AMD Driver Autodetect
As well you may want to run this : Graphics: Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark (Do the above Graphics test only with the latest drivers, and then Run it until the temperatures stop increasing; should be less then 10 minutes. If you don't see any crazy glitches or distortion on the screen, The test most likely passed.

Since my copy of Red Hat 7.2 doesn't seem to have built-in support for my Radeon 8500, I kind of need to download display drivers from here. My problem is...

How in the heck do I do it??

RH7.2 is all installed & ready to go, it's just that it boots into the command prompt, not the X windows system: KDE or GNOME.

Should I burn the drivers to a CD-RW? Or should I make a floppy disc? If I make a floppy; will Linux be able to read Windows' file system?

Thanks in advance.

A:Installing Linux display drivers

It's an RPM ( RedHat Package Manager ), which is kinda the equivalent to InstalShield for Windows.

In order to install, you have to position yourself in the directory containing the RPM & type :

. rpm -ivf fglr200-glc22-4.2.0-1.4.3.i586.rpm where I = install, V = verbose & F = I no longer have the slightest clue.

( Linux Gurus, help with the parameters, I'm not sure it's -ivf ).

You can now configure your VGA/Screen options with an utility such as Xconfig & once you're done StartX should start the default Window Manager.

Hi Madhu,

Please let us know if the system is working fine after you keep it running on the standard VGA driver. Also, did you perform a clean install of windows on the system.

Kindly perform the diagnostics on the system following this link below:

Then kindly remove the video driver from here:

I have a Silicon Graphics 1600SW lcd monitor which has a native resolution of 1600x1024. Now my video card (Asus v7700 Geforce 2 Pro) supports this resolution fine with old nvidia drivers:

nVidia Detonator 4 version 21.83

and earlier versions. However, anything later than this and my picture gets warped. The screen is a wide screen (hence the native resolution) however when running any drivers later than 21.83 then setting the resolution to 1600x1024, it will take the resolution and squash the 1600 to 1280 so I have big gaps on the left and right.

Anyone got any ideas on how I can possibly correct this as I would love to upgrade my drivers to something newer

I tried uninstalling the current driver in the add/remove programs list and then installing the new ones again, but I still had the same problem. I've heard talk on some forums of programs like driver cleaner, but some people had serious problems caused by that software. I shouldn't need driver cleaner to simply update the drivers on my same old nvidia card, right? how can I get my system to recognize the new drivers? Thanks for any help anyone can give.

A:Need your guidance for display and sound drivers

there a couple ways too do this, first we need to know what motherboard/ computer model do you have? also what version of windows did you just install? for video cards download a program called gpu-z and it will tell you the model type. if you know how to get into device manager (differs based on which windows is installed) you can sometimes figure out both sound and video, but the best way for sound is to know the motherboards specs.

Graphics Drivers

Are you downloading the drivers using the same laptop? If you are then it might be worth trying to download them onto another machine first, burn them onto a cd rom and then try re-installing. Also, go to the manufacturer of the laptop website. Laptops are strange beasts sometimes and although it may say it is an Nforce graphics card, it may be a "hybrid", which could require special drivers for it. Hope this helps!

I'm assuming that's an AGP card? I'll set you up with how to install the latest 9.10 beta. I'm almost sure I can get your card to work with this under 7. All you need to do is go to device manager, right click card and choose properties, go to details tab, change the property drop down to say hardware ids. There should be shown a few lines.

What is the exact 4 digit number next to dev_ in any of them? I'll make you an .inf. In the meantime, download this driver and run it to extract to c:\ati. When the installer is done extracting, then close it...which is before it start actually installing. Then I'll have further instructions later.

About a month ago I upgraded my Horizon from Win to Win and soon after my display went dim as if it were on the lowest brightness setting I checked and it said I was at Eventually I discovered that Win upgraded my display drivers I have a NVIDIA G and the Intel display adapters I went ahead and uninstalled both of these drivers and my screen - Screen display Horizon drivers from Dim went back to normal The next day I turned it on and my Horizon - Dim Screen from display drivers screen was dim again After looking into this I discovered my drivers automatically updated themselves according to my event log So I Horizon - Dim Screen from display drivers went ahead and removed them again I also turned off windows updates in services just to be sure it wasn't causing this However even all that my display drivers went back to dim again It's only everytime I uninstall these drivers my PC goes back to normal And somehow the drivers are still auto updating themselves I tried recently downloading directly from NVIDIA the latest driver just to see if I was current but sure enough it's the latest driver causing the issue Is there any other driver I can use or any way to keep my PC from updating my display adapters nbsp nbsp Horizon - Dim Screen from display drivers Moderator comment Model added to subject for clarity

A:Horizon - Dim Screen from display drivers

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
Sadly one of the bad features of Windows 10 is the way it automatically installs updates in my opinon.  This can create problems in situations like yours where a newer driver creates problems.  Please review the article I have linked below on how to stop Windows 10 from automatically pushing driver updates onto your system.

i want to buy need for speed carbon but im not sure if my display driver can support it.
on the electronic arts website it says the minimum requirements, my computer is good for everything except im not sure for the video card
its lists - NVIDIA Geforce4 Ti/ATI Radeon 8500 or higher
i have an intel graphics card that came with the computer, the latest update of the intel 82845G, does this mean i wont be able to run the game?
do you need an nvidia or an ati graphics card?

A:Display drivers for need for speed carbon

It means you are screwed unless you buy a graphics card. Even then a 2 ghz with 512 of ram is going to have hell dealing with the game.

It is time to think about retiring your machine to internet/email/office only if you want to game.

Mine needs work, I am just waiting for a bigger upgrade than what is now possible. I am near the top.

I am unable to find a display and audio drivers for Win98.

Presently, I am having P4 2.66GHz processor on Intel 915G chipset motherboard with WinXP OS. Due to some reason I would like to keep dual boot with XP and Win98(SE). Installation of Win98 is not a trouble. The drivers are not avalaible.

A:display and audio drivers for Win98

Well, the BAD news is...

There are SEVEN different Intel motherboards listed (on the Intel website):

which use the D915G chipset; NONE of them have chipset drivers available for Win9.x. You can't install any OS older than Win2k on that motherboard, unless you can locate third-party chipset drivers, which I strongly doubt.

Without the proper motherboard chipset drivers for Win9.x, you are pretty much out of luck unless you get a different motherboard that DOES provide support for Win9.x.

I have a compaq running windows xp with service pack The video card in question is an Nvidia GeForce MX I have only with display drivers at Monitor bit can 4 (lowest) not had very Monitor can only display at 4 bit (lowest) with drivers much fun with this card but have usually been able to make it do what I want It Monitor can only display at 4 bit (lowest) with drivers now only displays bit colours at x resolution Usually restarting the computer or reinstalling the drivers fixes this Now nothing will fix it I have let windows pick the drivers and gone to Nvidia and used their drivers Both worked fine before Now I don t have the desktop tray thing that lets me modify resolution and colour anymore and I don t have ane other options to display other resolutions or colours in the windows display settings either If I remove the drivers or start my computer in safe mode the colours look beautiful and I regain the ability to change the colours As soon as I install the drivers again the colours don t work anymore What I was doing before this problem occurred was trying to get the s-video port on the back to display in colour on an older TV with an s-video to RCA Component The cable worked fine on other TVs with this computer and fine on other computers with the TV in question Just not from my MX to the TV in question I had found some solutions to this problem which involved switching the outpute type from s-video to composite I then installed and reinstalled the driver many many many times and installed the one windows picked and managed to change that setting It didn t work I gave up The colours would display only bit at this point but not if I used the dual monitor feature and set the display type to quot clone quot which is what I wanted to do Now I don t have the nvidia display options in the tray anymore and can t fix the problem even with the same driver version installed Also I have the Nvidia control panel but because of the low colours I can t read any of the options This is quite frustrating for me If you have any ideas for anything I haven t tried yet it would be very helpful As of right now I m planning on getting rid of all software and starting from scratch Thanks nbsp

A:Monitor can only display at 4 bit (lowest) with drivers

It sounds as if reinstalling the driver many times may have caused registry problems, and/or the driver you
last installed is incompatible or has issues with your configuration. It's definitely a driver problem though.

Did you install the driver below?

Go into device manager and see if there are any yellow exclamation marks next to the hardware.

(worse case scenario; if you have an XP installation disk, you can perform a Windows "repair install.")

I have ATI Radeon 4350 and realtek network card.I have updated the drivers recently.I downloaded the catayst suite 11.5 from AMD and the realtek driver 7.045 from realtek.
When i went and checked the driver version in device manager it shows the graphics card version as 8.850.0.0 date 4/11/2011 and the realtek network card driver as 7.45.516.2011,date as 5/16/2011. I want to know if i have the latest drivers installed because in the manufacturer's website the graphics card posted date is shown as 5/9/2011 and the realtek network card updated date as 5/11/2011 whereas in device manager it shows the network card driver date as 5/16/2011 and the graphics card driver date as 4/19/2011.
How do i know if i have the latest version of the drivers as the version mentioned in the manufacturer's website is not matching with the version displayed in the device manager.

A:version of network and display drivers!

Maybe you need to install Speccy,check system infro from there. For me is working fine with Speccy and Device Manager

A:problem with install of ati display drivers

When you go to uninstall the drivers through the ATI uninstall manager just do a custom uninstall and choose CCC and the video crad drivers only. Roboot, then do a custom install and just install the CCC and the video card drivers.

This of course assumes you don't want to update anything else, like the chipset drivers.

BTW since you have the drivers, just click them and choose uninstall when asked and follow the porcedures I outlined above. No need to go through "Programs and Features"

A:Intel display drivers crashing

Applications and support disc would most likely contain the display drivers you require. If you can get to your desktop insert this CD and find the appropriate display driver.

Or the best option is to go here
MEDION - Driver Download...
and use the most up to date display driver for your laptop.

Can you tell me what changed since the last time your display worked fine.

As for your Realtek audio driver this can be found in the attached link too or on your support disc.

Hi all Whilst attempting to install the Mozilla Gecko layout engine to use with Topstyle Pro web editor I have managed re-install SiS adaptor display drivers Help to to completely upset my system display adaptor and wonder if anyone might be able to help me correct this Details of my system Help to re-install SiS display adaptor drivers Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Version Service Pack Manufactured and supported by Patriot Series Intel R Pentium R Processor CPU GHz GHz MB of RAM System Properties Device manager Display adaptors Sis FX series now displays a yellow circle icon with black exclamation mark and says that drivers are either not installed not working or cannot start I have done some research of my own and got as far as downloading and installing a couple of software programs from the web which are said to scan the PC and correct driver errors However on closer inspection it would appear that unless I am prepared to pay to upgrade the software to its pro version it will actually only scan and report errors not fix them This leads me to ask whether there is any reliable freeware or open source software that will actually perform the scan and also correct any errors it may locate After some further research I managed to download a driver zip file which I think may contain the correct display adaptor driversfor my system although I cannot be sure However after unpacking the zip file there appears to be no automatic installer and I am left at a complete loss as to where all the mass of unpacked files and subfolders should go I have tried using the update driver option in device manager by right clicking System Properties Device manager Display adaptors Sis FX series but there is no apparent option to connect to the internet and search automatically install the correct driver as I thought there might be Instead I am asked to use a driver disk which I don t have or to point to a folder on my computer which contains the correct driver s I have tried pointing directly to the folder containing the unzipped download that I mentioned earlier but a message is then returned to say that the folder I have chosen contains no driver files Info on the web says that I should point directly to a contained file with a INF extension I think but I am unable to see any file within the unpacked download with a file extension INF In fact there seems to be everything but So after all my best efforts this still leaves me with a problem Can anyone please point me towards the correct driver download for my display adaptor and also please explain how I can either automatically install back onto my PC or where the unpacked files should be placed in order for them to work properly Please bear in mind that any explanation needs to be in simple and non-tekkie terms as I am certainly no expert when it comes to matters such as this Before I end this post I should perhaps just mention that I never did manage to get the Mozilla Gecko layout engine installed and to add further insult to injury I now find that I also have something called AVG search bar which appears to have hijacked my normal Firefox Google search option I think this has happened as a consequence of having installed one of the software packages I mentioned earlier although I can t actually believe that Firefox browser allows this change to be implemented without throwing up some kind of warning but it has Can anyone please suggest how I might remove this toolbar and also where I might be going wrong when installing the Mozilla Gecko layout engine I can offer further info as to what steps I have already taken in my attempts to try to get Gecko working properly should this be required Incidentally should I post further questions about Gecko in this or another section of the forum Any advice and information gratefully received nbsp

A:Help to re-install SiS display adaptor drivers

Drivers for your PC are (or should be) available on your PC manufacturer's website, under "Support".
Do not use any third-party driver scanner programs, they will often install the wrong drivers!
Just download the drivers yourself from your PC manufacturer.

Failing that, try the official SiS drivers pages here:

I recently purchased this
I installed it and started experiencing some serious problems. When i do anything slightly stressful on the system (mostly gaming) the game runs fine but after a few minutes (sometimes seconds) into gaming the screen will freeze, go black, then come back again. I get a pop up that says "Display drivers have stopped working and have recovered". This is extremely aggravating and stressful for me seeing as ive read a few things on this problem and all the trouble shooting ive done has got me no where. Ive tried keeping the system cooler, adjusting the OC, giving the cpu a bit more voltage, updating drivers, and taking the radeon 6450 i had in (with dual graphics enabled). The motherboard i have in here is a Gigabyte A75M-S2V.

A:Display drivers have stopped responding!

Have you tried reinstalling drivers for the graphics adapter? Try uninstalling from control panel and from Device Manager. Then restart the machine to let the PnP devices reinstall it themselves on their terms.
