I've had this issue for some time now.


Every now and then (approximately three-four times per day) the drivers for Windows 10 (64-bit), 15.7.1, keeps crashing. The screen goes black for 3-4 seconds, and the comes back to my desktop with an error message telling me that the drivers crashed and was restarted. This also forces games (Hearthstone, mainly) to freeze and needed to be closed from the Task Manager.


I've tried reinstalling the drivers several times (both manually and with the auto detect), without any luck. Is anyone else facing the same issue, and if so, did you find any solution for it?
