GTX 550 Ti Problems with BF3

I join a game like the campaign, co-op or multiplayer and I can play it for 5-10 minutes then the game freezes completely and I have everything updated, but an error came up earlier saying that my graphics driver had stopped responding but had repaired itself and its doing that every time I'm in the middle of Battlefield 3. And it only does that error for BF3. Can anyone help me?

My specs are :
AMD FX-4170 (4.20GHz)

Can anyone help me please because I don't want to have wasted £45 :L

Try reinstalling the game and updating graphics drivers, also check your CPU & GPU temps.

It sounds a lot like GPU overheating. Monitor temperature, make sure case is well ventilated or open the side for testing purposes, clean out dust from fans and possibly card's heatsink.

my card does the same thing. I also get pixelated screens and neon (pink/green) colors on the screen. I alt tab it and it gets a little better but does not completely go away.

My BF3 used to crash after 5-10 minutes of play by alt+tabbing to the desktop screen and there was no way I could get back into the game. This started when I d/l the most recent bf3 patch 2 weeks ago and I couldnt figure out why as when I first installed it in Nov it worked perfectly.

I am now able to play for about an hour before the pixelation/colors occur. What I did was I uninstalled the Nvidia 3D Vision stuff in the control panel as well as that Nvidia Stereoscopic thing.

Good luck
