Hello AMD.


I was wondering if you guys could assist me with an issue I'm having. I've owned this Sapphire HD7770 Vapor X OC version for two weeks now, but it is my second 7770 series GPU, so I've owned a 7000 series card for months now.


Initially when I first installed the 7770, it was giving me bad performance with games, so I installed AMD's new 12.11 beta drivers, which solved my issues perfectly.


However since today, I am getting a BSOD caused by atikmpag.sys and a driver reset time issue. , it has only happened while Youtube or Facebook attempts to start rendering a video from their player, it does not cause a lockup, but it does make one of my dual screens turn black with varying artifacts on it. After a while this will cause a BSOD.


Is this an ongoing issue with the Beta Drivers? I find it odd that the drivers that first solved my past issues are now causing this serious behavior.


Any help is highly appreciated!

Try disabling gpu rendering....use software rendering. In IE goto  tools/internet options/advanced and put a checkmark in the box. Firefox has the same setting in general settings.

Also, make sure your flash player is current.
