Sometimes when I play Hearthstone (which isn't even a super graphic intensive game), the screen freezes for 1-2 seconds before showing this message. Could someone help me figure out what could be causing this?

 

My computer is a Lenovo Flex 2 running Windows 10.

Have you tried updating your display driver?

Go to https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24345/Intel-Driver-Update-Utility and run the Intel driver update tool.

Most often this is a STOP 0x117 (video TDR error that has recovered).

Please follow these troubleshooting suggestions:  http://www.sysnative.com/forums/bsod-kernel-dump-analysis-debugging-information/35-video-tdr-timeout-0x116-0x117.html#post29532

usasma,

 

          Just as a side note, I've been seeing this sort of error happen far more frequently in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 strictly as a result of driver issues.  On my partner's machine (Win8.1) one of the more recent drivers caused this error when an older one did not, but it has not recurred with the very latest driver from AMD.

It seems to me that video cards are becoming increasingly complex.  And as such, the driver developers have to cram more into each driver package than ever.

 

Back in the XP days, it was almost a certainty that a BSOD during hibernation was due to video drivers only. 

Then we went to it being a mix of drivers (storage, wifi, chipset, USB, etc) - and troubleshooting became more difficult.

Now I'm often faced with (during BSOD analysis) several video card related drivers in a single memory dump - making me wonder which component of the video card is actually to blame.

 

As for the error popping in and out - this is (IMO) a result of the increasingly complex construction of video cards (and their drivers).

I believe that the problem existed in the oldest driver - but was not exposed (to the system) because the advanced features weren't calling on it to do the work that caused the error.

Then the advanced features came out - and they called on the driver to do this (and that exposed the error).

Then they had to go back and fix that (in the latest version).

 

IMO this is due to the pressure to come out with newer, better video solutions as fast as possible.

The quality control could be better served (again IMO) by testing longer before releasing a driver package.

There, I corrected that for you!  ;-)

 

This is precisely one of the reasons I left software development.  Even before I did, the programmers where I worked had the refrain, "There's always time to do it over, but never time to do it right in the first place."

This is a normal question. The basic thing is that your gpu is overload to run and your graphic driver need to update. So you need do the next things:

1. Update graphic drivers to the latest version. (you should first to consider this error, becase this is the easiest way to solve this problem)

2. Use task manager to end program, especially the video program or game program.

3. Increase the TDR value data.

4. Reset the GPU frequency.

5. Update motherboard/bios Drivers.

6. Cooling computer.

7. Change Graphic Card
