Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 7500 Series, came with the Dell XPS 8700
AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History: OEM drivers -> AMD Catalyst ver. 14.4
Operating System: Windows 8.1 with all current updates
So whenever I play any game, save old ones like CS 1.6 and Warcraft 3, a black screen always comes up and the monitor says that it isn't recieving any signal. I have to hard reset the computer to get back my screen. This can be delayed by constantly alt-tabbing every one in a while.
Steps to reproduce:
1) Start any 3D game that isn't older than Warcraft 3.
2) Play without switching windows.
3) After a bit, the screen should go black.

Additional Details: I went to the Windows support forums, which, I realize, was the wrong thing to do, and I am totally stupid, but I'll link it to let you know what happened. Ignore that bit on it only happening to fullscreen games, that's been disproven.
Soo, yeah, can anyone help me, or do I have to get a different card?
