Hi everyone,

 

I upgraded my gaming-pc from a GTX 550Ti to a Radeon R9 290, and at first it was running brilliantly! After a while though, the games started to freeze and the speakers started making noise during the freezing. Sometimes it crashes back to the desktop, sometimes it just stays frozen, other times I get a black screen.

I have tried to get older drivers (13.12) it doesn't solve the problem. Can anyone help me?

 

Specs:

AMD Phenom II X4 970 BE

Corsair XMS3 2 x 4gb

Sapphire R9 290 4GB GDDR5

Corsair RM1000
