What You Should Know About Driver Updating

There are a variety of typical alerts as well as other messages which you may get in the driver updating procedure, a number of which I've paraphrased and listed here along with tips on what you can do:

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.

Method to Update Driver with Device Manager

1. Now let's take Windows 10 for example. Open Windows 10 Control Panel by clicking Win+X(Windows keywindows key 3and X key) at the same time and click Control Panel.

2. Open Device Manager.

3. In Device Manager window, expand categories and locate the device that you wish to update the driver for. For instance, if you want to download driver for "NVidia Detonator 3", find this device under "Display Adapters" category. Then right-click on the device name(NVidia Detonator 3) and select Update Driver Software.

To download and update the driver for NVidia Detonator 3 yourself (If you know computers well)

It's best to let Windows install device drivers automatically. But if Windows can't find a driver for your NVidia Detonator 3, you can look for a driver on the manufacturer's website of NVidia Detonator 3. 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, you usually double-click the file to begin the installation, and then the driver installs itself on your computer. What you should know is that a wrong driver may cause system malfunctioning which you should be careful about. Download a professional driver updater or find a geek to help you.
