This is a common issue. It is a Windows issue. Here is Microsoft's article.
Here is a work around:
The following is a way to extend the time Windows waits before it restarts the video. It doesn't "fix" the original issue, but it should prevent most, if not all, of the TDR's from happening.
Note: If you are not familiar with editing the registry, I wouldn't recommend changing the TDR. It involves creating new keys and values, which have to be exactly the same as the instructions, even the capitalization.
1.Click Start, Run, and type "regedit"
2.Navigate to: HKey Local Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\
3.Locate the "GraphicsDrivers" key, and right-click on it.
4.Click "New"at the top of the page and create "DWORD Value"(for 32bit) or "QWORD" (for 64bit)
5.Label the new value "TdrDelay"
6.Double click on TdrDelay, and enter the number of seconds you want Windows to wait before timing out. The default is two seconds, so start out with 8, and you can make it a few seconds longer if it doesn't fix the issue.
7.Close the registry editor and reboot the computer.
