280x flickers and glitches on browser and desktop

Discussion created by bduburgess on Jun 18, 2015



I have a Radeon 280x and am having an issue.  Randomly, it seems, the screen will flicker and glitch.  Sometimes it will crash the PC, sometimes it will go to a black screen.  I have installed this on 2 different PC's with same effect.  I have used 4 different drivers, including the most recent released and beta, and currently 13.12 which is what I have found to be the most stable.  It doesn't happen in games, mainly on the desktop or in a browser screen.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I have tried to narrow down what causes it, and have been unable to so far.  I am not running Raptr and it is completely uninstalled.  I have Windows 8.1 on one PC and Windows 7 on the other.  Both have same issue.
