Vtdisp Display Driver Malfunction

by JoelJr110 / January 22, 2005 7:02 AM PST

It works fine until I satrt playing a game called "The Specialist" which is a half life mod. In the game it runs untill there is an explosion or a gunshot from my own gun. After an explotion the sound will repeat like 10 times in a 1 second interval untill a screen that say's something along the line of your vtdisp display driver something yadayadayada. I couldn't memorize it all. But then it goes to the main screen and it looks like when the computer is in safe mode. Well if anyone can lead me to what to do or a download to update the program or anything that will help this problem it is much appritiated.

nothing as far as information. The exact error, the operating system on your computer along with the specs. etc, etc, just as the forum tip which is about where you put your subject in would help someone to help you.

vtdisp malfunction exact info
by fkaser / February 8, 2005 8:11 AM PST

I also experience a problem with my vtdisp driver. Here's an attempt at a more specific description:

Averatec 3225 laptop, 512 RAM, 1.53 GHz.
Windows XP

When returning to normal operation from the screensaver while NOT plugged in, I get the following error message:

"The vtdisp display driver has stopped working normally. Save your work and reboot the system to restore full display functionality. The next time you reboot the machine a dialog will be displayed giving you a chance to upload data about this failure to Microsoft."

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
