My GPU crashes while playing PC games. Any ideas on how to fix? Answered
Whenever I play 3d PC games (mostly Source engine games), my graphics card crashes if there's to much action onscreen. By this I mean that when it crashes, the game freezes for a second, then the whole screen flashes black, and the screen returns to normal, albeit with the fact that the game is "Not Responding", with a little message at the bottom right corner saying that my graphics card crashed, and that it recovered. It might be attributed to the fact that said computer is a laptop, with a mobile graphics card, but any ideas on how to fix, or at least prevent it from happening more often? Here are some detailed specs of my PC.
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T6400 @ 2.00GHz
RAM: 3.8 GB
Video Card: Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family
