How can I fix “Display driver igfx stopped responding and has recovered” errors?by wowgirl on April 15, 2009
Q: I play World of Warcraft. I used to play it last year, quite frequently. Once in a while during gameplay the screen would freeze black but then things would resume as normal. This might happen once an hour. When I closed the game or minimized it the error bubble at the bottom on my screen would say “Display driver igfx stopped responding and has recovered”. Each time the screen goes black, that message will be there. So if it happens 5 times you have to close out that message five times.
Recently, I had taken a several month break from the game and just resumed yesterday. The freezing/black screen/igfx message is now occurring every 10 seconds. making it impossible to play without wishing I had a sledgehammer.
