What You Should Know About Driver Updating

There are a variety of common warnings as well as other messages which you might get in the driver updating procedure, several of which I've paraphrased and right here along with information on how to proceed:

QUESTION: I have seen this Event Log Message:

                A TDR has been detected.
                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. Open Control Panel

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

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

3. With Device Manager now open, you can view a device's status, update the device drivers, or do whatever other hardware management you came here to do.
