I posted this couple days back and let the post die because I thought the issue was resolved. However it was not. Whenever I am in a game or join a game and in rare cases at my desktop my video card drivers will stop responding and 90% of the time Windows 7 can recover them. This happens to be every 5 minutes while in game and I do not know what to do. I have tried 5 different versions of drivers along with catalyst or just display driver. I run driver sweeper and restart each time I install/uninstall drivers. The card is not over heating. It idles at 30-33C and while in game 45-50C. I have cleaned the card and the PCI slot the card goes in to to rule out a bad connection. I am literally at the end and do not know what to do!
