I bought a new graphic card (XFX Radeon HD 7850 Core Edition) about a week ago. I worked quit well but a few days ago i got a blackscreen while playing WoW and this Windows message: "The display driver is restored after a failure. The display driver "AMD driver" stopped responding and has recovered."(translated by google translator) This problem got worse yesterday, if i start WoW or any other game (like LoL or Minecraft) i get a blackscreen in not more than 5 seconds and the game will crash. Even sometimes if i load flash based internet sites like youtube the problem will sometimes occur.
I already uninstalled all graphic drivers and reinstalled the latest version. It did not help.
Im still thinking its a driver problem because as i outtabbed a LoL Match to check the task-manager during the crash, the programm went on as there were nothing wrong but in the second i tabbed in again it crashed immediately.
The Soundtrack will go on until i end the process in task-manager!
To sum it up: If the programm is running in the front window it will crash, if it runs in a back window everything is ok.
I hope yu can help me somehow.
