This problem has just once again started plaguing me. After I initially had this problem, I updated from Vista to Windows 7 32-bit about a year ago. I haven't had a problem since then.... until about 2 weeks ago.
My game/screen will freeze, getting fuzzy and static lines all over, then the driver will recover, and I'll have the error in the bottom stating "The display driver AMD stopped responding but has recovered."
Whenever it doesn't recover, I get a bsod. I've tried reinstalling Windows, cleaning out my computer, scanning for viruses, running GameBooster while playing, and nothing seems to work. I'm assuming this is boiling down to be my graphics card itself, and it probably needs to be replaced, amirite?
It's a Radeon HD 3870 X2, and I've had this PC since about October of 2008. Any help at all would be appreciated!
