Sometimes when I'm playing WoW, Smite, Lol, ect. it goes black for about 5 seconds then tabs out to my desktop and says "Display driver has stopped responding and has recovered" in a bubble off the task bar. Sometimes it even stays a black screen; still on and running, but I will have to force shut down by holding the power button. All my drivers are up to date and I've tried everything on youtube. The only thing I can think of is overheating but it only goes to about 80C max.

If its an Nvidia card, try upping the voltage on it a little. Unless you have the latest card, 13 millivolts is max so use that.
If its AMD...I don't know, never had that problem.
