  1. VIDEO TDR FAILURE IS NOT ALWAYS A DRIVER OR HARDWARE ISSUE


    In many cases the blue screen "VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE" does not indicate a system configuration problem, but is just Windows shooting itself in the foot. The TDR monitor was intended to detect GPU hangs that would disable the UI, and automatically reboot the system so that the user would not have to know how to clear a hang (hold down the power button). TDR was never an essential function, but now that more apps use GPUs in compute mode, has become positively dangerous.


    Reports of this failure are now rife on the web, and in most cases they are related to legitimate GPU compute processes, not bad game code. For example many users of Adobe Premier Pro and Lightroom now experience this crash regularly. It seems to be more prevalent on laptops with dual GPUs, which are also becoming more common.


    This is a real defect in Windows, as it causes needless loss of time and loss of work for people who don't deserve it.


    Sophisticated developers should be able to able to structure their GPU processes to avoid this crash. But this would just be another Windows-specific restriction, and we don't really need it. Better to disable TDR, or extend its timeout, by editing the Windows Registry. Here is the official info from Microsoft Timeout Detection and Recovery (TDR) Registry Keys - Windows drivers | Microsoft Docs Windows does not put these values in the registry, you have to create them by hand (note they are not new keys, just additional values of the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\


    I suggest that Microsoft consider disabling TDR by default, and allowing those who want it to opt in via a system setting. Assuming that there are scenarios where it delivers some actual value. Otherwise how about just scrapping it?

  2. Intel HD graphics drivers and Video TDR Failure

    I have a Dell Venue 8 Pro 5830 with an Intel Atom CPU z3740D running Windows 10 Home version 1607 OS Build 14393.187. Two weeks ago I started to get Video TDR Failures, to the point were the PC is unusable as it freezes up two to five times a minute and
    usually fails within two minutes. I am not sure if I received an update or not. I assumed it was a minor issue so I refreshed my PC. This did not fix the issue so I did a complete reinstall of Windows 8, then updated to Windows 10, again this did not fix
    the issue. I read on line about updating the Intel HD graphics driver, so I went to Dell's web site and updated the drivers and BIOS per Dell's suggestion, still no fix. I used a system restore from my son's Dell Venue 8 Pro, thinking it may be an update
    that I missed, no fix to the Video TDR Failure. I have downloaded the following drivers from both Dell and Intel; Intel HD Graphics Version 10.18.10.4252, 10.18.10.4338, and 10.18.10.4425. all three give me the Video TDR Failure. I am currently running the
    Microsoft Basic Display Adapter for the Display adaptor. I do not receive the Video TDR Failure with Microsoft's Basic Display Adapter, but the camera does not work and when the PC goes to sleep and the screen backlight stays on. I ran Dell's system analysis
    to see if there were any issues, the PC checks out good with the Microsoft Adapter, however when installing the Intel graphics driver the analysis would not proceed through the graphics test. I installed a Logitech web cam with drivers just to see if it would
    work and I had no problems. I am not sure if it is an Intel/Windows 10 issue as I have Windows 10 running on my son's Venue 8, and have gone through all the suggestions listed on both Dell's support sight as well as Microsoft's web site; or a hardware issue.
    Any help will be appreciated.
