now I've had this computer setup for over a year and it has worked flawlessly up to now, I haven't changed anything apart from the drivers.
as of now I run the 12.6 version of catalyst.
before I updated and got the issue I'm pretty sure I was using either 12.6 or 12.8 too (yes it worked fine back then)
I use 1920x1080 res with HDMI cable
processor is an AMD phenom II x4 940 black edition
