So I recently got an AMD Raedon 7850(or 7870 can't remember) and sometimes while I'm playing games the whole computer will freeze up and my screen will become alternating lines of green and black...and it seems to just be visuals because if I'm talking to someone on VoiP like Skype before the crash I can continue the conversation during the crash although no inputs are reconized. 


I've asked around at a lot of tech support forums and haven't found anyone that knows whats going on...I've tried the newest drivers, older ones, beta ones and no Help. I've checked all the voltage in the bios and everything is perfect and theres no errors in windows event viewer during or after the crash.


Does anyone have any ideas what could be happening? Thanks for any help
