Windows 10, Intel HD Graphics Driver & "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered"? Try turning off 3D Settings...

TLDR;

If you are seeing Display driver stopped responding issues and have an Intel card, try turning off your 3D settings, reboot and see if that helps.

Since upgrading to Windows 10 I've been getting "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" every so often. SnagIt would trigger it, but other apps too.

Yet sometimes it would go away, and stop happening.... grrr. I thought it was my Intel 4600 HD driver versions, that updating would fix it and that the issue would come back in later versions.

NOPE!

It was the 3D Settings! A problem I've run into before, sigh, Windows 10 Start Menu Text changing color and to dark to read? Try turning off your Intel 3D settings...

Great thanks! I have been struggling with this problem for a while. And as you mentioned updating drivers does not help.

I also had this error for every 5 minutes. I repaired the driver with Driver Talent and reboot. The error never popped up again. So the possible reason of mine is the bad graphics driver. It is like you mentioned in the post. Thank you for your tips.
