For some time I have a problem with the graphics card. On the Performance tab of the AMD Vision Engine Control Center program has been blocked me clocked at 780 Mhz, and I can not change.

Also I have a problem with the game Guild Wars 2, the game freezes randomly, the screen turns black, and then continues to run, sometimes the game crashes with an error that says "Guild Wars 2 is closed by a failure graphics on the controller "

I tried to reinstall the drivers, and update to version 2013.0429.2313.39747.
I changed the fan speed to 90%, and also opened the graphics card to clean and change the thermal paste, without any improvement.

It's possible that the card is just.. getting old. Have you tried clean installing the drivers using Driver Fusion or Guru3d's DDU? To rule out software issues, you could try booting a live os and do a graphics test.

6 years of heat cycling causing thermal degradation would be my guess as well. You could try baking it, but a card of equal power, the R7 250X can be had for $60, while pulling almost half the power.
