Haaiii..
I just build up a new CPU with below hardware :
ASUS P8H77-MLE motherboard
Intel core i3 2120 3.3GHz processor
Corsair 2X2 GB RAM
ASUS SATA 3 500GB HDD
Biostar Radeon HD 5850 1 GB 256 bit DDR5 Graphic card

But when I play a graphically intensigve games such us, FIFA 13, PES 13, ASSASIN CREED 3, GTA IV, CALL OF DUTY BLACK OPS 2, my display will stuck or freeze for a few second, then flash with a blank screen, then back to the freeze screen of the game, and keep doing that repeatedly. When I forced to quit from the game and go to desktop by Ctrl+Alt+Del, I saw a balloon message in the right bottom side say "Display driver has stopped responding and has recovered". I have been working to solve this for 2 weeks and still can't solve it.
I updated my graphic card driver, downgrade my windows to 7 32-bit, the problem still there. Please kind a help.....

Why did you downgrade to 32-bit? That's not gonna do anything. What driver version are you using?

uninstall the graphics driver the entire thing so all amd ccc, and reinstall, and make sure u have all win updates done.

Simple solution, u said u downgraded to 32 bit? well if its a downgrade and not a reinstall then it prob wouldnt fix ur issue. So copy wat u want yet and fresh install of 64 bit solves most software issues lol

OK, I would try then,,
anyway, do you think my Power Supply could provide enough power for those hardware?
I forgot to mention, I use Corsair 500W Power Supply..
Because the problem occur intermittent, that's why I'm not thinking the problem coming from software, or driver...

Essentially, the Display Driver is crashing, but is restarting. Could be a bad driver version, or even the PSU. Worst case, the card might be starting to go.

If you haven't encountered any BSOD's yet (Specifically, 0x116 or 0x117), then its more likely to be the driver rather then hardware.

Have you encountered any problems when using non-gaming GPU-related activities, such as Flash?

I've had this problem for a while with a Gigabyte nVidia 560 Ti SOC card. Have done clean installs of drivers, and followed the advice from many people that you can see from doing a Google search pertaining to the error.
What is working fo me, after 4 hours of playing dual screen LoTRO and also EVE ( the games where I'd have the error every few minutes ) was to underclock from the default the GPU and the shader setting by 50Hz. Your graphics card manufaturer should have a software tool for overclocking, so use it to slightly underclock. It's a workaround that I can live with. Your settings will be different to get your system stable, but I'm guessing that the defaults are too high.
Also, be aware of what you have plugged into USB when you are playing - your PSU may be feeding those things when your graphics card is hungry.

Sounds like drivers then; Flash players use the GPU hardware, so if the hardware was at fault, I would expect problems doing that. Still could be the PSU not able to handle full load though.
