Fortnite crashes and I get "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered"

Jump to solution

When I play fortnite, and only fortnite, my game crashes, I get a black screen on both my monitors and i get an error that display drivers have stopped responding and have recovered. Now, the situation is that whenever I launch fortnite, my monitors go black and i get the same error. I have tried to play other games, such as Rust and Minecraft and I get no errors.

Specs:

Sapphire R9 290

Xeon E5630 @ 2.53 GHz, 4 cores

8 GB ram

Win7

I have not overclocked or done anything to this graphics card to make performance better. I have cleaned out the dust from it, to get nothing. I have made sure I have the latest drivers (18.7.1) at the time of posting this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If it helps I try to make my temps not go over 90 degrees. Thanks.

I'm getting the exact same error as you 2, and it's annoying as all hell, what can we do about it? Is there a solution of some sort?

I think I may have solved it. Run regedit, and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, go to CurrentControlSet, go to GraphicsDrivers, and then go to AdditionalModeLists, and set the hexadecimal value to TdrDelay to 60 by double clicking TdrDelay.

Hold on, when I go to the addiontalmodelists I don't see a TdrDelay, do I have to make one? This fix isn't working for me.

I have the same problem.

I went in the config pannel and deleted AMD software and now I can play fortnite. I don't think it is a longterm way to fix the problem, but I can play for now.

We only can go back to 18.6.1

Use DDU to uninstall the current driver
