Handling the Loss of a Display Device

The following scenarios initiate a call to the display miniport driver's DxgkDdiOPMDestroyProtectedOutput function while content protection on a graphics adapter's output connector might be enabled:

  • Changing the display mode

  • Attaching or detaching a monitor from the Windows desktop

  • Entering a full-screen Command Prompt window

  • Starting any DirectDraw or Direct3D exclusive-mode application

  • Performing Fast User Switching

  • Locking the workstation or pressing CTRL+ALT+DELETE

  • Attaching to the workstation by using Remote Desktop Connection

  • Entering a power-saving mode--for example, suspend or hibernate

  • Terminating the application unexpectedly--for example, through a page fault
