Hello.
My specs are
Intel Pentium 2020m 2.4 Ghz

Intel HD 2500 graphics + AMD 8670m

4 GB RAM Windows Ultimate 7 64 bit 

Using Intel 10.18.10.3345 drivers and AMD 13.12.

When I view say youtube videos for example, while viewing the video it's okay(fullscreen) , when I exit fullscreen mode I get a black screen for 1-2 seconds and then a message pops up from the system tray saying " AMD driver has stopped responding and has recovered" or something along those lines.Then Opera 18 doesn't load any websites and I have to restart opera.Doesn't seem like a big problem but when you view tens of videos at once it's really a problem having to restart Opera 20 times every 5 minutes.

I rolled back to 13.11 beta v1

Try disabling hardware acceleration...in IE go to tools > internet options > advanced and check use software rendering. FF has the same type settings....Opera will have similar.

Ok. So instead of AMD delivering stable drivers( even the beta didn't do that), you are telling me to disable HA which is extremely useful.Thank you.I don't know what to say.Besides I knew it was HA that was doing it.
