Display Driver Timeout Detection

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

Windows can detect when the graphics hardware or a Windows XP Display Driver Model (XPDM) device driver take longer than expected to complete an operation. When this happens, Windows collects diagnostic information about the timeout condition, and prepares a report that you can send to Microsoft. These reports are analyzed and used to assist in creating updates for Windows that fix reported issues.
