While playing games like Red Eclipse, Urban Terror, Sauerbraten, Xonotic, or Alien Arena sometimes my screen will freeze and I will have to turn the power off by the button. Recently I managed to press CTRL+ALT+F1 and saw a message saying the GPU hung, sometimes it does unfreeze but most the time I will have to reboot. are there any possible fixes for this.
This is the Error message I receive
[47557.283284] [drm:i915_hangcheck_hung] ERROR Hangcheck timer elapsed... GPU hung
