If I have to guess it must be some hardware related thing. Check temperatures, voltages and also for BIOS updates for both the motherboard and the video card. We've seen some Rx cards with BIOS issues lately, so I wouldn't be surprised if it was something like that.

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 810 @ 3120MHz | RAM: Kingmax 2x2GB DDR2 800 @ 833MHz| MoBo: MSI K9A2 CF v1.0 (BIOS: 1.D)| GPU: Asus HD 6850 1024MB (DirectCu) @ 835/1135MHz | Display: L24FHD | PSU: PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750 Quad | OS: MS Windows 3.11 Pro x64

I, too, have been plagued with these BSoD issues. Completely random. sometimes 6+ times a day, sometimes 1 a day.  I tried literally everything humanly possible to fix this.  Tried new drivers, checking connections, messing with settings.  I could garauntee myself a BSoD running Heaven Benchmark whenever I ran it, it was just a matter of time as to how long (never over 3 hours).

I own an Asus r9 290.

I dont know if this is the problem or not, or what happens, but I did overvolt my GPU through the Catalyst Control Center (yes, I still have it installed, even though multiple people have said to uninstall it for stability).  Overvolting my GPU by 35% in the CCC seems to stabilize things for me.  Im currently able to run Heaven Benchmark for 20+ hours at a time, and no BSoDs.  The only thing I get now is a stuck screen after X amount of hours, requiring me to force reboot.

 

Either this is a fluke for this to work for me, or AMD has horrendously undervolted their factory settings required to efficiently run this card.

 

As I said, I dont know for a fact if this is a fix or not, but for me it has worked.  Too little too late for me, AMD has already lost my business to Nvidia.

One of my Powercolor OC 290s were having black screen problem so I RMA'd it. Right now the other 2 are giving BSOD randomly. It usually happens when I'm watching youtube videos. Windows 8 64bit system gave me a lot more trouble than the Windows 7 64bit.

Here is the list that I think it might be related:

1. Crossfire with 2 monitors hdmi + dvi.  

2. Internet Explorer. both 9 and 10 version, havnt tested the 11 yet. Google Chrome seems better but still BSOD...

3. Video playback. Sometimes happens using other media player.

4. Gaming. Only happened once and I'm not playing games very often right now.

All of the 1-4 are related with Crossfire and dual monitors. I'm testing the cards separately now. It kinda makes sense since the new crossfire might be the reason of BSOD. or It might be the dual monitors.

Please share more details of your problems. If it's not driver issue I'm going to RMA them.

I had the same problem.I found installing windows 8.1 pro solved the problem.All previous windows do not have the generic ati r290/x drivers so cataslyt wont install properly.Hope that helps.

I have the same problem with my 290x and the Asus P8P67 WS Revolution motherboard. Based on some web searches my guess is the problem is the NF 200 chipset on the motherboard. This is consistent with the specs of the gigabyte x58a-ud9 motherboard. http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3434#ov

Here is another thread: http://www.overclock.net/t/1476149/asus-oc-r9-290x-bsod-win-8-1-0xa0000001-atikmdag-sys/10

My BSOD information (8.1 Update 1): 0xa0000001 (0x0000000000000005, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000,
0x0000000000000000)

*** ntoskrnl.exe - Address 0xfffff8026bdc6fa0 base at 0xfffff8026bc73000 DateStamp
0x5318053f

As to what to do about it... no idea
