    Download this file. If it opens, save it and give it.reg extension then run it. When prompted whether you want to add information to the registry click yes. Reboot and try playing. Make sure you backup your registry first.

    Windows 8


    Ok, i have installed the registry files as requested, however there is no difference, the display driver still stops responding during mid game-play, resulting in the game hanging.

    I have also started to try and collect data on my GPU before the driver stops responding with HWMonitor, in hopes this might helps. Below are the info of 2 crashes that i managed to collect data about.

    1st crash:
    Game: Titanfall
    Playtime B4 Crash: <30 min
    GPU Temp graph: Link
    GPU Utilization graph: Link

    2nd crash:
    Game: NFS Rivals
    Playtime 1 hour
    GPU Temp graph: Link
    GPU Utilization graph: Link

    I doubt the temps are the cause of the driver stopping to respond, as the second crash happens at not very high temperatures of 77 degrees.

    As this is a laptop, maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea to try using their drivers. Maybe it will help.
