    Display Driver Stopped Responding..

    And has recovered. Crashes Revit every time.

    Anyone else getting this error? I've tried different drivers and it still happens. Sometimes not for months. Sometimes several times in one day. Very frustrating.

    Which card do you have? We got this quite often...you have to dumb down the card big time and not use hardware acceleration..

      What's the point then?? I love HWA. :laugh:

      I'm running 2 cards (maybe that's the problem). Nvidia Quadro FX4500 and Nvidia Quadro 2000.
      Now that I think about it, I don't even know which card is failing. It doesn't specify.

      :banghead: It just did it again. Ugggggh.

        One is curious how you are running two totally different cards on the same machine. I hope you are not running SLI mode with that configuration.

          Hmm....shouldn't have issues with those cards....

          I would just disable Aero if you haven't already.. (And SLI won't work anyway with the Quadro 2000...its not capable)

              I just plugged them in and they worked. I don't even know what SLI mode is. :laugh:

              I think it is, but I'll check.

                I just solved this same problem. This is not a video card problem, it is a system ram problem. You have a one or more bad sticks, of ram.
                I don't fully know why a bad stick of ram can cause this, but it does.
                I built a new PC, and had the same problem, I tried 3 video cards, both ATI and Nvidia, current gen and older stuff, the problem would keep resurfacing, that was the clue that it was not the GPU. I ran memtest 86+ and had no errors in my system ram, but as soon as I switched my RAM out for some other that I had on hand the problem stopped.

                  Thanks for the reply. I'll definitely check into that. It's happened to both my work station and lap top. It hasn't happened since the last time I posted (almost 2 weeks).

                  Are you sure yours is fixed? How long has it been since it happened?

                    Mike, what OS are you running. I know Vista does some things with mapping Video RAM to System RAM that Windows 7 doesn't, which might explain how System RAM problems are manifesting in graphics symptoms. I would also be curious which graphics cards you are using? Any chance both use system RAM directly? Both ATI and nVideo offers card like that. Grasping at straws probably, but system RAM affecting graphics is a pretty unusual situation, so knowing exactly why would be really nice.
