I have an XFX R9 290 that has not been overclocked
AMD Catalyst Driver Version
Amd Catalyst 13.11 Beta9.5
Windows 8.1 64bit
Pc restarts even under light loads e.g. web browsing. sometimes the display freezes for 4 ish seconds before displaying a message in the bottom right corner stating "AMD drivers have stopped responding but have now recovered", or words to that effect.
Motherboard or System Make & Model
My pc is a fresh tech per built system, with a ASUS A78L-M/USB3 motherbored.
Display Device and Connection
asus VE278Q using HDMI
The issues occur in every application as far as i can tell.
FX-8350 @4GHZ ( It came pre clocked at 4GHZ by Fresh Tech)
System Memory Type & Amount
Corsair Vengeance 16gb
Seagate barracuda 1tb, four case fans and an optical drive.
I am confident that there are no viruses as this is almost all that I have downloaded. I have not checked any of the hardware as I assume that the crashing is due to the drivers because after the screen freezes then recovers there is a message saying that it was due to AMD drivers (when it dose not restart). It started to crash when i installed the drivers from the AMD website, so i uninstalled the drivers and then reinstalled them, this did not solve the issue.
