My system is getting the following error and warning message whenever I do any high performance task:

Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.

My system configuration is follows:

  • Lenovo Flex2
  • 8 GB RAM
  • OS : Windows 10

Due to this, my system keeps getting stuck. I've tried lots of things found by googling, with no success.

  • I might help to include what you tried. It will save people from suggesting the same things again. – fixer1234 Feb 21 '16 at 18:47
  • update the Intel GPU driver – magicandre1981 Feb 21 '16 at 19:12
  • Since you have NVidia graphics hardware, why are you using "igfx", which is an Intel graphics driver? – kreemoweet May 19 '16 at 4:53

I had the same problem using the latest stable drivers from Intel (This was back in ~December.) After a long search, I found a large forum thread of people having the same issues . One recommendation by someone from Intel was to try their latest Beta driver, which can be found here.

Since using the driver from here, I haven't seen the message since and it's been perfectly stable. That said, before trying that, I would suggest creating a System Restore Point and trying the drivers from Lenovo from here, or at least getting a copy of it in case you need to revert.

The thread I saw previously was here.

  • Thank you for the tips, i did all these. but still thee issue persists. Please let me know if you find anything new – Abhilash Thomas Feb 23 '16 at 17:21
