This is going to be not to much to start with but here is the story:


I'm doing my PhD and I'm already in my last year, from the past 3 years I have used opencl for my investigation, ranging from windows 7 to windows 10. Up until now I never had a problem until I updated from the drivers 15.7 to 15.7.1 and further on. My program makes the GPU to go stale and windows simply resets it.


OpenCL is used mainly for small mask like sobel or scharr so I do not think it is exactly on my side the problem, much less when I know that if I manually install 15.7 drivers in the device manager (as catalyst 15.7 does not want to install the driver when in Windows 10) makes everything work.


Edit, forgot to put my hardware which is an i7 4790k, R9 290x Vapor X 8GB.

Other symptoms include the driver resetting itself when sharing the screen using skype and then playing a game (in this case, heroes of the storm)


Please fix AMD.


Kind Regards,
