Recently, I was having issues where my computer was crashing every 20-120 minutes while I was playing Guild Wars 2. I was running 12.10 at the time. They suggested trying 12.11 or 12.9 instead, as they both were known to work better with the game.
I installed 12.11 Beta Drivers. And to the credit of those that made the suggestion, most of the crashes stopped. However, since installing 12.11 drivers, I have to turn off my computer completely when I'm done using it. If I put it to sleep, 90% of the time, I can't get it back on. If it DOES come back on, it's with a lot of issues.
The few times it has come back on for me, there has always been a message for me stating that drivers were not successfully installed. The monitors won't be working quite right. I have a dual screen setup, and the lsecondary monitor will be extremely dark.
At first I assumed the driver message was for the monitors, because it didn't tell me which driver didn't install correctly. However, I also have a Logitech G15 keyboard, and I recently noticed that it's screen also wasn't coming back up when this issue occurred.
I reformatted my computer the other day to see if that would fix the problem. I had did a driver sweep when I started having the issues, but that didn't solve the problem, so I tried re-installing Windows to see if that would help. Without 12.11 on the computer, everything worked fine again. But as soon as I put 12.11 back on, back came the problems.
I would prefer to not go back to 12.10, and when I look in the Previous Drivers section of the AMD website, they only go up to 12.8. When I google search 12.9, I only find beta drivers for it. Is that all there was for that version?
I'm running Windows 7 64-bit with an Intel Core i7 920 processor, a Gigabyte Radeon HD 5870 video card, and a Corsair Enthusiast Series TX950 power supply. I'm not using Eyefinity, just a normal Dual Screen Monitor layout.
I've looked all over for someone that can give me some advice for this problem, but I can't get anyone to even comment on it.
