Hi,

 

Hope this is the right folder for this. As of late my screen will go black for a moment or two then I will get the following error "Display driver AMD driver has stopped responding and has succesfully recovered." I have seen that others have had the problem, does anyone know how to fix it?

 

I am running Windows 7 with an AMD display driver (I guess)

I went into Windows Update and updated my AMD driver. My available screen resolutions changed. BEfore the update I had 4 or 5 resolutions to pick (including 16*9 which I had been using) from now I only have 2.  Also after rebooting I received the message kdbsync.exe has stopped working.

The monitor is a Hanns-G model HZ201H.

Then the resolution should be set at 1600 x 900

With the updated drivers I do not get that option. I get 1920*1080 and 1280*720. Before the update I had it set at 16*9 but it kept crashing.

You should download latest graphic card driver from AMD support site.

I updated the driver, I think it had been using this version before which was causing the problems. I'll give it a day or two to see if it crashes again.
