Display Driver has Stopped Responding and has Recovered 560 Ti

So I'm getting stealthy, killing all the bad red guys on Far Cry 3 and about to liberate an outpost when suddenly the screen gets black, hanged then displays this error:

"Display driver has stopped working and has recovered."

I've searched around Google and found out that my 560 Ti driver was outdated. So, I updated along with NVIDIA GeForce Experience and immediately optimize Far Cry 3 settings. It didn't work and the game still hangs and just got some black screen.

I've also tried Microsoft solutions (here):

Method 1:
I used Microsoft's "Fix It". Didn't work.

Method 2:
Didn't work.

Method 3:
In visual effects I chose to "Adjust for best performance". Didn't work.

Where is the problem coming from? How do I stop the game from freezing up? Do I really have no choice but to just lower the video settings of Far Cry 3?

that driver set is EXTREMELY buggy and is causing this issue, please upgrade to the 326.80 BETA drivers as they have proven to be pretty solid.

Should these not help you I believe the most solid drivers they have are the 314.22

I was having the problem even when I'm at 314.22 version.
I'll try the beta to see if it works... Thanks for the reply :)

I think he was trying to determine if power was an issue, have you tried those new beta drivers?

Hey thanks! Yep, I did. I downloaded and tried it last night and after 3 hours of playing Far Cry 3 there was no error and it didn't crash.

I'm going to play again today to see if the beta driver really solve the issue.
Will update you.

I think the BETA drivers did the trick! I'm playing 6 hours straight now and no freezing or what so ever.
Thanks Darren! Now to get back to that scene where Citra is on top of me and topless ;)
