AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver history:
Catalyst driver versions 12.10 and 12.11 beta.
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, constantly kept updated through windows update.
I get freeze+crash with buzzing sound when playing EVE Online, regardless of the graphics settings in the game. Interestingly the issue only seems to pop up when there's combat action going on around me in-game.
For example, I will take a mission and fly out to kill enemy ships, and as soon as missiles and lasers start firing sufficiently intensely, I get freeze-crash with buzzing sound and have to reset my computer using reset button.
I normally play eve in windowed mode, with desktop settings 1680x1050, 32bit color, 120Hz.
In game-settings are set to highest possible, vsync disabled. I have tried changing all the graphics settings in the game but the crash happens regardless.
