Hi. I own a HP Pavilion g7 2210sm notebook with 2.4ghz Pentium Dual Core processor, 4GB RAM, 750GB HDD and AMD Radeon HD 7670m 1GB graphic card.
For the last half year since i bought it everything was doing just fine until i played a game of NBA 2k13 (which i used to play all the time) and a Blue Screen jumped out saying "Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed".. I was running the laptop on Windows 7 64bit.
Then I tried installing Windows 8 (x64) but the same thing happened just with a different message saying: "THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER"
My laptop was restarting every 5 minutes until I entered safe mode and removed all AMD drivers i had installed. After that everything was working fine without BSODs, but when I try to reinstall the CCC, the BSOD jumps out again.
The thing that bothers me is that i tried to install the driver via some driverpacks i got from a friend, with success.
See? In device manager it says that the driver is installed and functioning properly. And it kind of is... Since i can watch movies and stuff without any trouble. But again when i try to install CCC, my laptop gets shut down once again after a blue screen popped out.
I even tried running a game with installing that driver via driver pack, and without installing CCC. The game tried to start, screen turned black and "loading" sign came up. But after 10 seconds it failed, and guess what came up... BSOD.
So I'm wondering what can I do about this issue.. Or, is it possible to do anything about it. Because I'm really affraid that it's some kind of hardware problem.
EDIT: I forgot to mention that I tried downloading and installing multiple versions of catalyst installer but none worked.
Thanks in advance
