AMD A10-7850K APU with Radeon R7
AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History
Currently using Version 13.301.1001.0
I also tried using the beta drivers available on http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMDCatalyst13-11APUBetaDriver.aspx with the same crashes, as well as Version 08.00.0915, which was on the disc that my (prebuilt, from NewEgg) computer shipped with.
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (6.1, Build 7600)
When watching Flash videos, I experience picture distortion, as well as the video temporarily becoming entirely green.
In several games (Team Fortress 2 with all settings on high, trilinear filtering, recommended settings; PAYDAY 2, both on high and low settings, with anti-aliasing on and off, VSync on and off; Plague Inc. Evolved on highest and lowest detail settings) I get unexplained crashes. Typically the game hangs momentarily, then either closes immediately with no error messages (which has occurred with all three games, but occurs most often in Plague Inc.), displays only a while screen (this only occurs in PAYDAY 2), or causes a blue-screen-of-death (has occurred with Plague Inc and PAYDAY 2).
With Team Fortress 2, on some occasions instead of crashing, the game will still seem to be running well (sounds still going on as though nothing was wrong, as well as it hiding my mouse cursor), though it is entirely invisible. If I select it on my taskbar to make it the active window, I can see the other windows, though my computer seems to believe it's still rendering the game.
These all seem like driver issues, which is strange as I have tried several alternatives.

Motherboard BIOS Version
ASUS BIOS Ver: 09.03
EDIT: I just upgraded my BIOS to the most recent version, 1301. Since then, I have had even more crashes, every time I start a Flash video. I don't even blue-screen, I am treated to a grating sound and glitchy horizontal bars and have to hard restart. I just reinstalled Flash, and this crash still occurs. When I launch a video game, I get a blue-screen, with the error message IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.
