Toshiba Laptop with r7 m260 Driver Hanging + bsod issues

I am on a Toshiba Satelite L70-B-12T Laptop (PSKRQE).

CPU: Intel Core i5-4210U CPU, 2C/4T, 1.7GHz (2,7GHz Turbo), 3MB Cache

RAM: 1x 4096MB DDR3L/1600MHz

VGA: AMD Radeon R7 M260 2GB VRAM.


Every time i try to play a game amd driver hangs or i get bsoded (atikmpag.sys).

Some days happens right after i boot the laptop and others after several hours of use or a couple hours of play.


I tried everything on win8 home x64(OEM) and win 7 x64 pro.

Everything includes:

-Updating Intel Graphic drivers (auto-updater promted me to use toshibas driver)

-Used Toshibas drivers.

-Used latest and beta drivers from amd.


-All windows and graphic card settings are on performance.

-Dissabled all relevant power-saving options i could find.


-Tried several times the ,manually extracting-replacing, fix for atikmpag bsod without any change.I keep getting this error 1x per day at minimum.


The games that i have tried and perform bad are:

-Sniper Elite 3 (driver hangs and recovers succesfully)

-Archage (Every graphic setting is on minimum and i keep crashing,bsoding and getting my driver hang right after i log in game)

-Tera : Here i can actually log on lowest settings (+lotsa .ini tweaking) but i randomly get the driver hang thing again and rare bsod.

And these are the only games i have tried on this laptop so far


3DMark normal computer test:Bsod when generates the report.

3DMark Mid range gaming pc test: Driver hangs on 1st video and never recovers.

Planning to run another stress tester but besides that i m definatelly out of ideas on how to keep troubleshooting this.


Thanks in advance!
