I've been struggling with this issue since maybe Catalyst v 13 (I'm unsure of exactly when), but it normally would be a rare issue, and hard-resetting my PC, sometimes multiple times in a row, would take care of it.
Typically, it's videos that would cause this to happen - CNN, Youtube videos, and some other web pages.
However, it started doing this instantly upon installing the latest 14.4 WHQL driver, and now it's doing it every single time I play a video on various sites, and it even did it just loading the CNN main webpage.
This is a huge stress, and it destroys a lot of my time and also productivity. I've spent the last 4 hours trying to just get back into Windows and launching a browser, and quickly closing the offending tabs before they load, so that my screen doesn't become useless again and I have to hard-reset again.
Discarding all my tabs was not an option.
I've uninstalled and reinstalled Flash, and I've checked to make sure there aren't multiple installations of Flash that could be creating incompatibilities. I've also done a complete uninstallation of the 14.4 drivers and a clean full install of them.
For now, it looks like I'll have to go back to an earlier driver version, maybe one of the 14.4 betas will work.
I really need a fix to this, and will appreciate one ASAP.
