View Full Version : IL2 Freeze with Vista

03-12-2009, 02:45 PM
I have still lot of trouble when running IL-2 1946 4.08m or 4.09mB1 with Vista OS. After a randomly changing period of Time (10 mins up to 2 hours) the game freezes and the following message is displayed:

'Display Driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has recovered'

I googled for nvlddmkm and got more than 40.000 hits !!!!!

Okay, if you have the same problem with nvidia drivers you can read this

NVIDIA Statement on Timeout Detection and Recovery (TDR) Errors (http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=65161)

to get more information.

But most important: Launch a bug report at the Nvidia Quality Assurance site using this form

Nvidia Windows Vista Graphics Driver Bug Report (https://surveys.nvidia.com/index.jsp?pi=7498eac864dc1950c8f09e040b4a437a)

Only if many users launch a bug report Nvidia will react and release a solution for IL-2 with future drivers. We should use the power of our community to get a solution.

Many thanks for your support

This isn't a Vista problem, this is a display driver problem that is very common. the nkvdwhatever file is for Nvidia cards and apparently ATI cards have a similar problem.

This happens to lots of people (including me) and nobody has found a single fix for it, there are quite a few topics on Community Help about it.
