Since I built my new rig it works fine for everything except games. I continually get the error message "AMD display driver stopped responding and has recovered". I'm running everything with the latest drivers. I tried reinstalling the AMD driver (13.11 beta 9.2) and going back to the boxed driver (13.6) that came with the videocard. I also tried running the games on low settings and some other tricks learned from this forum. Nothing seems to work. I'm quite desperate as I spent a lot of money on this rig and some games which are now utterly unplayable. Anyone has any idea on what I can do?


System specs:


CPU: intel core i5 4670K (not overclocked yet)

RAM: 8 gb DDR 3 1600 MHz

PSU: Corsair 750W

Videocard: Sapphire R9 280X 3GB GDDR5 OC Dual-X

OS: Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit

do you use DDU to uninstall drivers?

for me restarting Bios did the trick. Drivers are a mess , just try random versions or look at the Saphire website, they should provide a working version. (that was my case with MSI)
