I usually overclock my Laptop without a problem, however this time as issue has arisen, and it is particularly strange. I'm writing from the laptop that has this problem, and this problem does NOT manifest itself when I do not have the AMD drivers installed.
The events were as follows:
1. Overclock using AMD GPU Clock Tool
2. Restart the laptop without restoring the default clocks (never heard about this being an issue before, apparently I'm the only one with this problem).
3. Upon restart, Laptop invariably crashes to either a Black Screen, a Grey Screen, or a Blue screen with faint vertical bars.
4. Having tried many different permutations of restarting with the same application back on default settings, and uninstalling & resinstalling the AMD drivers, the only solution that works permanently is removing the AMD drivers completely.
I'm failing to understand exactly why this would be, but it seems pretty clear to me that it is a software issue, rather than a hardware issue. Possibly (probably) a conflict of some type, but as to have to deal with it, I am at a total loss. I would prefer not to have to reinstall windows, and all my applications and games, but if it comes down to it, I'll have to. So if anyone has any idea how to fix this, I'm open to all suggestions. Thanks.
Edit: Realised I didn't mention my specs: Alienware M15x with an ATI Mobility 5850M (overclocked when playing games to ATI 5870M clocks).
