I have a this problem when I'm playing games, after a few minutes into the game it would freeze and then an error would prompt in my task bar, saying that my display driver stopped responding. I don't know how it happened because it only happens when I'm playing computer games.

Can someone help me to solve this issue?

Thanks in advance.

Hi dear !

Mostly display problem arises when playing games.  You have not mentioned when the problem arises or what is the  particular game or do you have the problem with every game you play ?  Because there are many games, which do not meet your system hardware requirements.  So try to check the game hardware requirements.

If this problem arises with every computer game, then there might be a problem with your RAM also because sometimes games get stuck up with the RAM.  Try to unplug your RAM and then plug  it in to your computer's Motherboard.

Hope this will help you.

Hi Toper.

It would help a lot if you could post what your motherboard and video card is.

I actually had this same problem as few days ago.  My motherboard uses an AMD 780G chip with onboard graphics.  The default clock of my onboard graphics was 400 MHz.  Through the BIOS, I over clocked the graphics to 800 MHz.  It worked flawlessly for most games, such as Torchlight, Warcraft 3, Diablo, Flash Games such as Plant Vs. Zombies, and some PopCap games. 

However, the "driver stopped responding" error would appear if I played NFS, Most Wanted or Angry Birds and Angry Birds Rio.  I tried updating to the latest Catalyst drivers but still the problem persisted.  I then decided to lower my overclock from 800Mhz down to 700 MHz.  

What do you know, it worked!  I'm not trying to see if I could raise the clock again to about 780MHz because I really want the performance boost for my onboard video.

Hope this helps!

Dear Topper,

I will just base my suggestion on the image that you sent. Well, once you receive such message in your computer system, it means that your PC or laptop can hardly handle the heaviness of the game, that you installed. Another reason is that, your PC or laptop suffered a lot from too much heat, because just like me, when I usually play video games, most of the hardware are working, from your keyboard to your system unit.

I guess you are using a laptop.  A laptop is much nearer to risk than a PC, because laptop is designed for office purposes only, it will not be able to resist too much heat, because most of the parts are near to each other, that's why, when you battery is heated, the parts are also heated.

So I must say that if you're using a laptop, avoid playing video games for more than 3 hours.
