Microsoft has set up to clarify an error message associated with running Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft on Windows Vista. Both Blizzard and the Redmond Company received reports from users complaining about display driver failures and the two companies have identified the problem. According to Microsoft, neither the game nor then new graphical architecture of the operating system are at fault. But it is a case of incompatibility.
“When you try to play the World of Warcraft game by Blizzard Entertainment on a computer that is running
Windows Vista, you may receive an error message that resembles the following: Display driver stopped responding,” Microsoft revealed the symptoms and added that “problem may occur because the video card driver is incompatible with Windows Vista.”
In this context, Microsoft advised users to update the video card drivers. In order to do so, users will have to use the DirectX Diagnostic Tool. In order to access the command scrip tool, enter “dxdiag” in the search box under the Start menu. When dxdiag will become highlighted in the Programs list, press Ctrl + Shift + Enter in order to launch the utility with elevated privileges. Agree to the User Account Control and let the DirectX Diagnostic Tool do its job.
“In the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, click the Display tab. The video card’s name and the video card’s manufacturer are listed under Device. The driver version is listed under Drivers. Update the video card driver,” Microsoft added.
Blizzard Entertainment is also providing resources addressing the issue on its official website. On the Driver update information web page, Blizzard is helping customers troubleshoot video and sound problems generated by old or faulty drivers. Blizzard offers all the guidance necessary for gamers to resolve display drivers issues and get back to the World of Warcraft in no time.
