Hello, recently I started to get lots of "AMD video driver stopped responding and have been restored". I've this card for half a year by now and never had these problems. They just started to appear recently.
Windows event viewer shows these errors as "Videodriver amdkmdap stopped responding and was successfully restored."
When this happens:
Unreal tournament 3, it appears every 2-3 minutes.
Sometimes in Dragon Age 2
Over some time when Using VMware Workstation
Photoshop got program sniffer_gpu which (as far as I understand) detects gpu. This is launched during photoshop launch and crashes video driver (note: only if I launch 64 bit ps and it wasn't happening before).
What seems weird to me, is it was working fine some time ago and I haven't installed anything but windows updates lately (though I doubt windows updates can be reason to this though).
Actually, UT3 didn't have these crashes 3 days ago, then 2 days ago it suddenly started to crash.
What I also find weird, is that 32bit version of this sniffer_gpu executes just fine, while 64bit one causes videodriver to crash.
Can't think of any conflicting soft. Running at the moment of crash are one of above mentioned programs + kaspersky internet security 2013, opera and aimp2 (audio player). Tried with these turned off, still crashes.
