Display Driver Timeout Detection

Updated: January 6, 2009

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Windows can detect when the graphics hardware or a Windows XP Display Driver Model (XPDM) device driver take longer than expected to complete an operation. When this happens, Windows collects diagnostic information about the timeout condition, and prepares a report that you can send to Microsoft. These reports are analyzed and used to assist in creating updates for Windows that fix reported issues.


Event ID Source Message



Display driver %1 detected and recovered from a failure. Some graphics operations may have failed.
