Mx32004,

This most likely is not a Vista issue. Vista uses a technology called VPU
Recover (Visual Processing Unit Recover, if memory serves) that keeps your
computer from crashing when it has a problem. Instead of the system
crashing, like it did in former versions of Windows , VPU Recover keeps the
system up and running. That's the idea anyway. Sometimes it crashes anyway,
depending on the severity of the issue involved.

Therefore, this is a problem in your system, and the recovery you're seeing
is only the symptom. It's usually a symptom of a hardware conflict of some
kind. Figuring out just what kind and eliminating it is the challenge.
Causes include incompatible hardware along with incompatible drivers.

Here are some troubleshooting steps you can take to help identify the
problem. Start by examining a Vista report that logs problems and recommends
solutions. To look at the report, click on Start > All Programs >
Maintenance > Problem Reports and Solutions. Look through the report and
note any issues therein and focus on the corrective action recommended in the
report.

Another step is to search for incompatible drivers installed on your
computer. Do this by clicking on Start and then on Run. In the space
provided, type sigverif.exe and click on OK. This app will search your
system for unsigned drivers and list them. Not all unsigned drivers cause
problems, but some do. You have to use a process of elimination to pinpoint
the bad guy.

Report back on what your find.

I am getting the same message on my computer too...I have an unsigned driver
it seems..Now what? I used the help thing on Vista and when they asked if it
was helpful, I said no..Because it doesn't tell you how to fix an unsigned
driver..I don't even know what that is, let alone fix it..And how do you get
it signed???? Does this mean I will always get a Black screen when I play
WOW????

What video adapter do you have? Vista x86 or Vista x64? Have you gone to the
manufacturer of your video adapter and searched for the latest video adapters?

Steph,

Here is a short course on what a signed driver is: Microsoft has a program
whereby vendors, like ATI, nVidea, IBM, etc., who make hardware and software
to run on Windows are asked to submit their drivers to Microsoft for
confirmation that they work properly. When Microsoft confirms that the
drivers work properly, it designates that driver as signed (by Microsoft as a
good driver). Like, they signed off on it.

An unsigned driver doesn't mean it's causing a problem, but it could be
because Microsoft hasn't verified that it works properly. That's what you
have to figure out. Sometimes it's easy because the name of the driver
sometimes will have a name that indicates what device is using it. For
example, ATI video cards often use drivers that are include the letters ATI,
like this: atitool.sys (actual example). Others aren't that easy. One thing
you can do it use google to search the Internet using the name of the driver
by which to search.

The error report I mentioned in my prior post should disclose the program
and the driver that's causing the problem. Understanding what that report
says in a matter of becoming familiar with it. You can also use google to
search on error report terms to find information about what those terms mean.

What do you do after you determine which piece of hardware/software is
causing the problem. Basically you have two choices. You can remove the
offending trouble maker, or you can update to a current version, which often
fixes crash problems. To do this, you also will need to do research to
figure out what the alternatives are. The vendor of the offending
hardware/software is a good source of information. It can be confusing. You
can participate in a forum where these type issues are discussed and
resolved. Just some thoughts. Others may have additional comments about
this. All are welcome.

I think I have found a solution to a problem that plagues many players!

I too have been having a problem where about three mins after logging into
WoW the screen goes black for 4-5 seconds, and then continues to do so every
30 seconds or so.

Here are my system specs.

GTW GT5412
OS: Vista Home Premium 32-Bit
Processor: Intel Core 2 1.80Ghz
Ram: 2038MB
Video Card: Intel 82945G Express Chipset Family.

I read all over on the internet trying to fix it, and everyone said to
download the 02/04/07 drivers from intel.com but every time I would run the
installer it would tell me they weren't made for my computer.

Here is how I eventually got it to work.

Step 1:
Download the 02/04/07 drivers from Intel (Version # 15.1) Put them somewhere
you'll remember. (Desktop)
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Fil...e Premium, 32-bit version&lang=eng&sType=prev

Step 2:
Go to [Start -> Control Panel -> Security -> Turn automatic updating on or
off (Under Windows Update) -> Select "Check for updates but let me choose
whether to download and install them.

Step 3:
Go to [Start -> Control Panel -> System and Maintenance -> Device Manager ->
Tell Vista to Continue -> Display Adapters -> Right-click and uninstall your
current drivers.

Step 4:
Restart your computer. When Vista opens you will get a message that it is
installing "VGA adapter drivers"

Step 5:
Run "winvista_151" (Driver installer you downloaded earlier)

It should work - and if it comes up with a "Unknown error" than just try
running the installer again.

It worked without a hitch for me, and for my girlfriend's computer too. Hope
it works for all you guys too!

Lemme know how it does for everyone, okay?

i do agree that you need the igfx driver from 2/7/2007, however, with
the hp pavillion/compaq presario computer you need to restore to the
original factory settings(it willset it to the original set up date,
bfore the extra igfx driver was installed). before hp sent out your
computer they installed a new intel graphics media accelerator on top
of an old one, so you end up with two of the same programs fighting
over the same space. check to see how many intel graphics drivers you
have on windows defender start up programs. you might notice that you
have two. so restore original factory settings, but do remember to set
your windows update so you can choose what/when to install.

Dear caryn and kevin,
Thank you for contacting HP Total Care.
It is unfortunate to know that your system reporting "IGFX driver has
malfunctioned but has recovered" error message and I see that the
pre-installed memory is not supporting to work with pre-installed
graphics card.
You are right. I can understand your frustration. We assume this latest
issue is due to any update from Micorsoft.
Thank you very much for bringing this issue to our notice. This is a
new issue. After being discussed with our research team, we came to
know that this is a new error message noticed recently. Our research
team is working on this issue.
In the mean time, I request you to run Recovery manager to reinstall
graphics card drivers. Please open the following link and perform the
steps recommended in the HP article:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...4921&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

I see that your sysetm BIOS is allocating 8MB memory for integrated
graphicscard. Out of total system memory, your system video memory is
using 32MB as shared video memory.
I request your patience and time. I could send the resolution to your
email address as soon as we find the resolution. I request you to
contact HP Total Care for further technical assistance.

ok, i noticed that i pressed the wrong operating system, i have 32 bit
windows vista home basic. also, there isn't a graphics card installed,
i have integrated graphics on the motherboard included in this model.
windows does provide the latest update for the intel gma. however, when
uninstalling as recommended first before reinstalling, the
driver/software doesn't completely uninstall as there remains a gui in
the additional options on the control panel in windows vista. if this
is in the hp setup corehow are we to access as the program is not
available to change/uninstall. also the intel chipset on this
motherboard is listed as no longer being supported by intel, nor was it
supported when this model was released. do you plan on responding with a
newer chipset?
more ram? yes, i can be patient, but this seems to be a defect that is
unnecessary, as it was caused by using something produced long before
vista became generally available, i understand they can't be expected
to support their products forever, but i have also noticed this problem
connected with the pavillion as well.thank you,caryn

Hi Caryn,

Thank you for writing back to us.

From your mail, I understand that you were not able to uninstall and
reinstall the graphic card drivers.

I greatly appreciate that you have forwarded your isssue and have given
us a chance to assist you with this matter. I imagine how tiring the
situation could be.

I regret the inconvenience caused to you in this regard and I would
like to inform that at HP we strive for customer satisfaction and it is
our constant endeavor to provide enhanced services to our esteemed
customers. Nevertheless, there are always exceptions. I sincerely
apologize for the inconvenience this issue is causing you.

You are right when you say that your PC motherboard has integrated
graphics. As you say that the drivers are not getting completely
uninstalled, I request you to try to uninstall the drivers in safe mode
and then try reinstalling the drivers.

I would like to inform you that as HP Compaq PC's are shipped with OEM
version of hardware and softwares, updates and assstance will be
available from HP.

As said earlier, the particular issue which you are experiencing is a
new one which is encountered in all types of PC's irrespective of the
configuration and model and the research teams at Microsoft, Nvidia,
Intel,AMD and HP are working to find the exact cause and its solution.
But as of yet no particular resolution is unavailable. But soon the
solution will be worked out and once that is done a patch or update
will be available with HP in the Software and driver page of your Model
and we will also mail you as soon as the solution is available.

The information provided should be useful to you. If you need further
assistance, please reply to this message and we will be happy to assist
you further.

Sincerely,

Marcus

dear marcus and sofie, i would like to recap the situation if i may.

1. the original issue: this model, as sold, only has 512mb of installed
ram. this model's hardware requires 1gb of ram. you did not include
enough ram on this model to even have it run properly.

2. the intel graphics media accelerator will not completely uninstall.
not in safe mode, as an administrator...or the other ways explained
from a myriad of resources. regardless of all efforts, the general user
interface for the driver set up , as well as the igfx driver, still
remains in the hp set up core which cannot be removed without
completely reformatting.

now, these were my two general complaints, both of which are directly
related to construction and set up of this model...from hp.

i am aware of the general furor over " the igfx driver has stopped
responding, but has recovered" error that is driving everyone crazy.
but my complaints are directly related to the construction and set up
of this model. caryn

For those using HP/Compaq notebooks with 965 Express chipset

After days of searching the net trying to find a solution for this
horrible problem I came to a conclusion, no one had a definate answer,
some of the "solutions" which I've seen either did nothing or made it
worse for my particular setup.

One thing which had made my system worse was removing one the RAM
sticks, but this also lead to my solution, so unfortuntley if you only
process one stick of RAM in your system then I am not positive that this
shall work.

1, remove the B side RAM stick from your system and reboot

2, On start up you shall be greeted by the configuration change, this
is showing that your laptop has recgonised the change in system memory.


3, Press F1 prompting that you accept the changes, this will start up
your system as normal.

3, As soon as its got back to the GUI shut down your computer once
again.

4, Replace the RAM which you removed earlier and reboot.

5, Once again your system will recongise the change in system memory,
this time though you want to press F10, prompting you wish to change
system setting

6, You should now see your normal system setup, scroll down to restore
system defaults, save changes and exit, this will boot up your system as
normal.

This is the solution for all HP/Compaq users with the 965 Express
chipset, also if your problem is while playing WOW then also change your
game resolution to match your computers, lower the graphics parameters
and I also found it ran better in Windowed Mode.

Disclaimer - I am but a messanger, if you have no prior experience in
removing RAM and using system setup then do not attempt this procedure,
phone a friend or something. I take no responsibility for your actions
or the damage which you cause your computer! You have been warned!

Hi guys

I have the same problem too. I run the file sigverif.exe and only one
came up
dsproct.sys...can I remove this,and if so how - would it stop my
problem ?

Been everywhere trying to find a solution, have tried to download
display drivers from the Dell site, put in my exact model and came up
with the error 'computer does not meet minimum requirements for
installing software' ! how that works I've no idea

I have Dell Vostro 200 (slim tower) - intel(R) G33/G31 Express chipset
family and get the "igfx display driver" error message after playing
sims3 for while, screen goes black on and off then game play continues
but goes very dark, few times its crashed too.
I have sims2 which runs perfectly and have only noticed this problem
after installing sims3

Someone suggested playing game in windows xp mode, how do I try to do
this ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm at my wits end

Think thats how mine got sorted - hopefully sorted, no crashes fer a
good few hours

I used the system requirements analysis 'Can you run it'

http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/referrer/srtest

said that I failed and that mt CPU speed was too slow (minimum 2.4
ghz, I've got 2.33 ghz) but it also suggests other downloads that may
help so I downloaded newest direct x thingy and seems to be workin fine
even tho its not supposed to ??

Go figure, but I aint complaining, long may it last

I am also having the same problem. I have an HP Pavillion DV6000, running Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit. Whenever I am in an instance or anything on World of Warcraft, the screen constantly blacks out, sometimes even freezes. Any ideas on how I can fix this :(
