When playing CS: Global Offensive, the system either crashes (black screen with iterative sound) or I get a "Thread Stuck in Device Driver" blue screen (after 3 min).


This is the card I bought, today!: SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290 DirectX 11.2 100362SR 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video C…


I just formatted my PC with Windows 10 x64 and installed the most recent AMD drivers, Radeon Software Version 15.11 (Only the drivers. WITHOUT the AMD Gaming Evolved App Powered by Raptr).


These are my HW specs:


SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290 4G D5

ASUS Z87M-PLUS DDR3 1600 LGA 1150 Motherboard

Corsair Vengeance Blue 16 GB (2x8 GB) DDR3 1600MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10B  

Samsung 850 Pro 256GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-7KE256BW)

Intel Core i7-4770 Quad-Core Desktop Processor 3.4 GHZ LGA 1150 8 MB Cache BX80646I74770


And this is the only stuff I have installed after formatting, in that order:


1.- Windows 10 64bit

2.- AMD Drivers

Radeon Software224 MBCrimson Edition11/24/2015

Without Raptr.


3.- Windows Updates

4.- Nod 32

5.- Steam (CS: Global Offensive)


Hope someone can help me!
