AMD Display Driver Has Stopped Responding [Happens during high graphical games]

I only have a two assumptions of why this is happening:

• There isn't enough power feeding into my graphics card. (Don't know what to do about that)
• My graphics card may not be enough

Here are my system specs:

Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series (The one I have is 7750)
Processor: AMD FX(tm)-8150 Eight Core Processor (8CPUs), ~3.6GHz
Memory: 8192MB RAM (8GB)
DirectX Version: 11
Power Supply: Thermaltake TR2 600W



Problem: I'm trying to play a high graphical game such as TERA, Starcraft, Resident Evil 6, Raiderz, etc.

I'm able to enter the game but the moment I see a moving screen with all it's objects, my computer instantly freezes and crashes which ultimately leads to a blue screen of death.

I've recently built my computer this past year and I've never tried high graphical games until now. League of Legends works of course but from time to time, my display driver crashes and gives me a blue screen of death.

What's wrong with my computer and how do I fix it?

EDIT: Like many other situations, when my computer crashes into a black screen and re-appears, a notification appears saying "Display driver has stopped responding and has recovered."

P.S: Thanks for reading my post. Been frustrated for quite some time now. :(

Try this: Go to Power Options in Control Panel. Select Change Plan Settings (on balanced or whatever plan you're using). Select Change advanced power settings. Scroll down to PCI Express, press the tiny + button, then + again for Link State Power Management, and make sure the setting is Off (and press Apply).
Other than that it could also be that your PSU isn't providing enough juice to your GPU for some reason, although your PSU is technically more than big enough to power a 7750.

It's still happening, no idea what's going on at all.

I did everything you said, turned it off and it's still happening.


Do you suggest I get a better power supply?

& Last question, if I were to get a newer graphics card, what kind of card would be best viable with my specs?

I wouldn't get a new PSU yet. It's worth checking if everything is connected properly and maybe try reseating the card (i.e pull it out and put it back in). Also, have you tried older (or newer) AMD drivers? Are you overclocking? While playing a game have GPU-Z log all the card's stats in the background, and straight after the driver crash have a look at the data in the file and see if there is any unusual behaviour (e.g. high temps, voltages etc).

I've done as much as I could, resetted my drivers into a fresh installation, tried all the older and newer drivers, overclocked and stopped, all of it is properly connected.

100% of the time I crash, it's a blue screen after the display driver stops responding.

Any weird temperatures etc from the GPU-Z log? Given that you also BSOD, it could also be an issue with Windows. Have you checked the Windows Event Log?
