I get Graphics Driver has crashed and windows has recovered succsesfully ever time I:

-Install driver (if they are not installed)

-Start windows/boot pc.

(NOTE: Problem occurs with Driver version 15.7.1 and 15.8 BETA, Im currently running v14.10 BETA and i dont have this issue using this version. (downloaded 14.10beta from gigabyte driver download page.)


Problem description

-Screen is a blue blurr

-Windows/programs are darker blue squares

-top and bottom of windows/programs are black/grey

-Taskbar/windows bottom bar, is a black/grey color bar

-Got 5/6 small lines of random green/pink/random dots/pixels horisontaly across the screen.

-Moving a program/window across the screen is like using a brush in photoshop, making wierd patterns of blue/black.

-color/items appear normal when i point at them with my mouse, sometimes. (like a button or a icon ect)


Bottom line, PC is unusable....
