Operating System

Issue Details

I rolled back the driver to 13.2 and the problem was resolved, but several times when watching videos (YouTube, Twitch) the video would skip or flicker and then (if I don't refresh the page or stop the video) my system would crash.

I looked into the Windows error (Blue screen: "You PC ran into a problem..") and tested all my PC's components and the only thing that was at fault seemed to be the new 14.1 Beta Driver. So I rolled the driver back to 13.2 and the issue resolved itself.
