I'm using 13.2 beta but this issue has occurred intermittently with previous drivers. I can't find a reason for it anywhere else so I'm trying here!
My card is an HD6950 and I have Win 7 and Win 8 on separate identical SSDs (dual boot). There have never been any issues with Win 7, but I'm getting occasional 'Display driver has stopped responding and has recovered' errors with Win 8.
Games such as Skyrim (with settings at ultra and lots of hi-res texture mods) play perfectly. The error message occurs when I'm in the desktop both when and when I haven't played a game recently.
Since this error doesn't seem to be causing an actual problem I suppose I could just ignore it, but I'd rather know what's going on, so any thoughts would be welcomed!
