    So I had another type of freeze (usually games freeze in game and there is black screen on fullscreen) this time when I alt+tab then game stops responding and I can't alt+tab back... I tried to restart GPU driver and put PC into sleep - didn't help! Also I tried to terminate it gracefully - same... Only forcefully killing it worked...

    I'm not a gamer, but I would suspect the code for a game is written for extreme performance bias without too much concern for DPC_WATCHDOG encounters or memory leaks or a whole long list of code stumbles that could cause it to implode. I'm not saying game coders are bad coders, they are generally some of the best due to the detail they demand. But trade-offs do happen and code will freeze tighter than a you know what and there will be no graceful way out.

    Just MHO.

    @f14tomcat -- How to restart your graphics driver instantly with a key combination -- what keystroke combo works for most Windows 7?

    Should be the universal Windows Win+Ctrl+Shift+B
