I already did that, I reformatted my pc before installing new gpu drivers just to make sure that the problem is not my OS, but still getting those weird BSOD while playing games. But if I'm just browsing and watching high def movies, it will not occur. Question, did you try to install updates on your OS after?

I just wish that AMD is fixing this problem right now, It's a BIG issue and many of us here are having the same problem.

I find a way to i can play the games...

Activated graphics overdrive and changed GPU Clock.

My card comes with 1150 Mhz (stock value) so i lowered to 1100 mhz

I played 1h in COD Ghosts and didn't get BSOD soo far!
(Normaly after 3 min -> bsod)

I will continue post any updates about the issue ...

Why do we need to change our clock settings or underclock the default clock speed of our gpu? Isn't supposed to work out of the box? Then its pointless to buy a factory overclock card if we have to do that.

How long you've been playing COD: Ghost with that settings now?

If you happen to play for 3 or more hours without BSOD, then I might say that we have unstable GPU, thats why we need to underclock it to be able to play our games etc.

NOTE:

I already followed the Sticky : on How to troubleshoot "Display Driver stopped responding and has recovered", ATIKMDAG.sys type errors.

http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/737-27116RadeonSeries-ATIKMDAGhasstoppedrespondingerrormessages.aspx

It did not fixed the problem.
