Display Driver Timeout Detection and Recovery to VGA

Updated: January 6, 2009

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Windows can detect when the graphics hardware or the Windows XP Display Driver Model (XPDM) device driver take longer than expected to complete an operation. When this happens in an XPDM device driver under some circumstances, the device driver cannot recover, and Windows starts the VGA-compatible device driver so you can see the desktop.
