So last week my video card began to crash when I was checking the internet. The screen would freeze go black and then restart usually with the browser having crashed with the usual "Firefox has crashed" report. If I went back on the internet it would repeat the freeze then crash then restart with an accompying message of the "the AMD video card has stopped functioning and has recovered". I think it may have something to do with the Flash add on because when I uninstalled it the problem was greatly reduced. I think it might be some sort of software incompatability but I have no idea how to fix it.
I have a Raedon R9 270 card
This is a Windows 8.1 x64
24 GB RAM
Intel Core i7-4790 CPU 3.60 GHz 3.60 GHz
