What You Should Know About Driver Updating

There are a number of frequent warnings and also other messages that you could get in the driver upgrading procedure, several of which I've paraphrased and right here along with tips on how to proceed:

QUESTION: I have seen this Event Log Message:

                The NVIDIA OpenGL driver lost connection with the display driver due to exceeding the Windows Time-Out limit and is unable to continue.
                The Application must close.

ANSWER: If you received this message from an application (on a pop up message or in the Event Log), the application was unable to continue rendering because the Microsoft Windows imposed time limit (TDR) was exceeded. This is normally the case when the workload sent to the Graphics Card is greater than what the graphics card can process in the normal timeout of two seconds.

Two possible solutions to try would be:

1. Reduce the graphics workload if possible, such as rendering to a lower resolution or with less detail.

2. Update Graphic driver. You can download DriverTuner and let it update your drivers automatically.

Way to Update Drivers with Device Manager

1. Find Control Panel.



Depending on your version of Windows, Control Panel is usually available from the Start Menu or the Apps screen.

What you do next depends on what Windows operating system you're using:

  • In Windows 10 and Windows 8, tap or click on the Hardware and Sound link.
  • In Windows 7, click System and Security.
  • In Windows Vista, choose System and Maintenance.
  • In Windows XP, click Performance and Maintenance.

Note: If you don't see these options, your Control Panel view may be set to Large icons, Small icons, or Classic View, depending on your version of Windows. If so, find and choose Device Manager from the big collection of icons you see and then skip to Step 3 below.

2. Open Device Manager

  • In Windows 10 and Windows 8, check under the Devices and Printers heading.
  • In Windows 7, look under System.
  • In Windows Vista, you'll find Device Manager towards the bottom of the window.
  • Windows XP Only: You have a few extra steps since Device Manager isn't as easily available in your version of Windows.

From the open Control Panel window, click System, choose the Hardware tab, and then click the Device Manager button.



3. In Device Manager, you can check for updates, update your drivers or troubleshoot driver problems



To download and update the driver for NVidia nForce 400 yourself (If you are a geek)

It's best to let Windows install device drivers automatically. But if Windows can't find a driver for your NVidia nForce 400, you can look for a driver on the manufacturer's website of NVidia. Driver updates are often available in the support section of such sites.

Once you find the updated driver, follow the installation instructions on the website. Most drivers are self-installing—after you download them, just double-click the file to begin the installation, and then the driver installs itself on your computer. But make sure your are downloading drivers from a safe website to avoid virus attack or registry corruption. Download a professional driver updater or find a geek to help you.
