I am having BSOD problems with my system. It is custom and brand new.

I have tried memtests, drive tests, etc... All pass.

When testing my GPU though I get odd results. I expect to get a frame rate in a decent level, but when I test with FurMark I get frame rates of 2 to 5! What frame rate should I be expecting? I tried setting it to a lower resolution which should boost them, but it doesn't.

I have tried it with the latest driver that just came out. I have rolled back to the 12.x driver from May. Nothing seems to change the frame rate.

When I uninstall the video driver and use Microsoft's VGA driver my system lasts for days between BSOD, but still eventually has them. When I use the correct video driver I get BSOD within hours and programs like Chrome constantly crash. Do I have a faulty APU?


Also, on temp monitoring software like speedfan it shows -6C for the GPU. Does anyone else with one of these APU's show similar results?

My first system had a A8-5500 and I did better than that.

First I would remove the current drivers following this document.

Third install CCC 13.9 following this document.

Give it try and post back.
