DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG temporary solution

Recommended Posts

I’m posting this as a temporary solution to the DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG error in P3D v5.

I have had no repetition of this error since adding the following entries to the Registry. I’m grateful to @srcookefor his help with this.

It should be stated this was done with 471.96 drivers. I have stayed with these despite later ones becoming available.

Before making any changes to your Registry make a backup. There is plenty of guidance on the web how to do it.

As with all these things you do this at your own risk. 

  • Start RegEdit.
  • Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers
  • Right-click right pane and choose New.. DWORD (32-bit) Value
  • Name it TdrDelay. Double-click it and enter a value of 60 decimal
  • Right-click right pane and choose New.. DWORD (32-bit) Value
  • Name it TdrDdiDelay. Double-click it and enter a value of 60 decimal
  • Exit RegEdit and reboot.

I would describe these settings as the best workaround until such time as Nvidia / Microsoft / LM issue updates for DirectX.
