I have an ACER aspire 5542G. The old motherboard died and replaced it with a newer one from ebay. The specs are:

Turion II ultra m600, mobility Radeon 5650, 2x2gb ddr2 667Mhz, Windows 7 x64.

The system runs games perfectly, passes stress tests and seems to work perfectly until I open Firefox. Then random video driver crashes occur and sometimes BSOD. I tried different mobility catalyst drivers and found that 13.9 is the most stable one but problems occur with that one too. I updated flash player, other plugins and disabled hardware accelaration. Crashes kept occuring. Internet explorer 11 seems to work ok. With the previous motherboard I had a mobility radeon 4570 that worked flawlessly with the latest legacy driver.

Any ideas?
