Graphics Card Crashing in Games
I've got a AMD A6-3410MX APU with a Radeon HD Graphics card at 1.60GHz and 4Gigs of DDR RAM running Windows 7. My graphics card seems to be crashing every time I try to play a game, such as WorldofTanks, and resets itself. I receive an error message stating "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered". This happens less frequently when in the loading screen and more frequently (every 5-10 seconds) when actually playing. I have the most up to date DX and no outstanding updates from windows. I've already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the graphics card driver and still no luck. This is a fairly new computer (less than a month old) and I'm out of ideas. Any fresh ones out there?? Thanks

Follow these instructions and give it a try, see if it helps at all.
Control Panel > Hardware And Sounds > Power Options > Balanced Settings > Click on Change Plan Settings > Click On Change Advanced Power Settings > Scroll Down To PCI Express, Expand the Tree, Expand Link Power State Management, and Make sure Its set to Off, Click Apply, Ok, And then close all those windows.
Even though the GPU is on the CPU Core, it still uses the PCI Express Bus to run.i7 940//Corsair H60//EVGA X58 SLI LE//6GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz//2x EVGA GTX 560 Ti FPB SLI//NZXT Hale82 850W//CM 690 II Advanced//Win7 64//WD 74GB V-raptor, 750GB Black, 1.5TB Green

Thanks for the reply but I tried the below and it didn't work. It loaded into the game again and like before it crashed.
