Any solution? Playing games and going on browsers randomly freezes my screen and I have to restart my computer. It started when I got my R9 290X so I know this is the reason. I can't use the keybord my mouse or anything. I have to cold reboot by my powersupply switch.
Specs: Radeon R9 290X Diamond (Reference)
FX 8350 8 Core 4.0 ghz
16 GB DDR3 AM
ASUS M5A88-M Motherboard
13.12 Drivers (14.1 Beta sucks)
1200w PSU Coolmax
MSI Afterburner Fan speed is on 10% per 10 degrees
BIOS Version: 1702
Windows 8.1 64 Bit
Samsung SSD 840 Pro 256 GB
I've tried everything. Defragg clean installs of drivers. BIOS updates, Chipset updates, registery cleaing, nothing works, I keep getting freezing screens randomly!
EDIT! I took the R9 290X out driver sweeped all of AMD and reinstalled my GTX 760 :/ So far no more screen locks or anything. This is such a bum, I spent $600 dollars on this card and I was so excited for it. And now I can't even use it.
EDIT 2: Forgot to mention 14.1 beta casuses the same problem as well just random freeze locks while gaming or web browsing. Though 14.1 has its own problem with the video drivers breaking when my computer goes idle to long, requiring me to restart my PC throuh the start menu.
