    Hello everyone,

    I am having a great time learning game development with Unity, but I am facing a very annoying problem.

    Unity freezes, and I receive this error "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered", it happens randomly, but it happens more often when I click play on an animation or when I press the play button to check the game or when I add or move objects in the scene, but it does not happen every time I do so.

    I checked everywhere, but cannot find a solution.

    Lenovo Y5070 laptop. (Brand new, no antivirus, turned off firewall)
    Windows 10.
    16 GB RAM.
    Nvidia Geforce GTX960M (Latest update 364.5.1)
    x64
    Unity 5.3.2f1

    Thank you for your help :)
