Brand new computer that has been crashing 5-10 times per day, sometimes at login, sometimes when I click a browser, etc.  Have tried every fix and suggestion I've found.  The driver update tool could not detect what system I was running, so I decided to try the new beta driver for Windows 8.  It was stable for 12 hours then went back to crashing.

Two AMD Radeon R7 260X 2GB GDDR5 16X PCIe 3.0 Video Card  (currently using 3 monitors on one of the cards and none on the other).

Windows 8.1 (64-bit Edition)

[CrossFireX] GIGABYTE GA-970A-DS3P AMD 970 Socket AM3+ ATX Mainboard w/ On/Off Charge, Ultra Durable 4 Classic, 7.1 Audio, GbLAN, 2 Gen2 PCIe X16, 3 PCIe X1 & 2 PCI

750 Watts - Corsair Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

AMD FX-8320 3.50 GHz Eight-Core AM3+ CPU 8MB L2 Cache & Turbo Core Technology

8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1866MHz Dual Channel Memory

Two 24" Viewsonic monitors and one 32" westinghouse monitor.

 

Any ideas how to keep the drivers from "stop responding", the little message from the windows alert thing.

 

Thanks in advance.

Well then you need to fill out the AMD Issue Report Form so that we are sure that it will be fix in the up coming releases.

It's submitted.  It's just really weird how there seems to be an invisible timer when it's turn on or comes out of sleep/locked mode.  It has a 1 in 4 chance of making it past 5 minutes without the driver crashing, but if it makes it past that mark it's stable.
