    Crash to desktop when playing game

    Hello guys, I hope I come to the right place.

    As stated in the title, when I'm playing any game (e.g: NFS Most Wanted 2012, Ryse, Metro 2033 Redux) for less than 10 minutes, the games crash to desktop, usually it hang/freeze (the sound is still there) before a window saying the game stopped working appeared. If I fast enough to close the game, a pop up saying 'Display driver has stopped working...) appeared in the taskbar.

    Before this, I am using Windows 7 64bit Ultimate and changed to Windows 8.1 Pro last week, to see if the problem is still there. I installed all the drivers from manufacturer website (I'm using Lenovo y410p for almost a year now) and the problem didn't disappear. I also updated to the latest GPU driver before changing it back to the one provided by the manufacturer (GPU: 750m, latest driver: GeForce 344.60, the driver I'm using: GeForce 327.62) using DDU/clean sweeper for several times but nothing changes. Hence, for a temporary solution, I used MSI Afterburner to downclock the gpu so it can run properly, although the problem is still exist. Right now, I assumed that the GPU is overheat/dust accumulated, since the max temperature the GPU can achieve is 40-50 Celsius, while before this it can go up until 80 Celsius. If the problem is really due to accumulation of dust, I will go to the Lenovo service centre since I still have the warranty.

    I hope that anyone can help me to resolve this problem. I have included several files in the thread to be checked. Thanks a lot for your help guys.
