Hi everyone.


I've got the following problem: While in windows (browsing the net, sortig files, nothing fancy but also in games and suchlike) the screen frequently freezes (up to every 30-40 seconds), goes black, is restored and I get the windows-notification, that my video driver has stopped working and had to be reset. I'll just go through the required list for the details:

Graphics Card
- include the specific brand & model (ex: ASUS Radeon HD7970-DC2-3GD5)
- if any over-clocking is being done then provide GPU & memory clocks, and the application used to over-clock

AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History
The current version (13.6?) but the problem was present on the earlier ones like 13.4 and before.

Operating System
- Win7 Professional 64bit
- Win8.1, also 64

Issue Details
As described above: Monitor freezes, goes black, comes back and I get the notification. Issue is pretty much unrelated. Sometimes it occurs right after system is booted, but reappears at random.

Motherboard or System Make & Model
- ASUS M5A99X Evo, if I'm not mistaken.

Power Supply

-Bequiet DarkPower P7, 650W (enough)

Display Device(s) and Connection(s) Used
- LG Monitor

Applications and Games

- everywhere

CPU Details
- AMD FX 8-core

Motherboard BIOS Version
- some fancy hanky-panky ASUS-custom-bios

System Memory Type & Amount
- no idea. 8 GB at least

Additional Hardware
-SSD boot drive, 2 System Fans, 1 DVD drive

Additional Details
- anti-virus is running, but the problem is not related to viruses in any case (was present after complete system reset)
- Actually, I assume the video card is either incompatible to something from the hardware or is just damaged.

Judging by the instant return of the problem after switching system from Win 7 to 8.1 I assume, something on the card is pretty much fried but I'm open to any suggestions that prove me wrong there.

Try disabling windows Aero I have AMD HD6670 constant display crash tried every fix online nothing worked. Last ditch effort I found info on aero causing this issue I disabled it no probs. I can now play FF14 full screen fps 22 no crash where as it would crash within 5 min. hope this helps. I tried EVERYTHING ie: 300W psu to 500W, DDU insafe mode, TdrDelay in regedit, switched to windows basic, complete system restore. The only other thing I did differantly was I downloaded drivers from AMD web page using the identifier tool. It gave me 14.2 omega (without dot something or other) placing my bets on Aero causing the crash.
