r9 390 drivers crash while not in game

My problem seems like a weird one which is giving me a lot of trouble, if I'm not in a game and am just browsing the web or flipping through documents, using word or whatever I can sometimes crash in about ~15minutes usually. However if I'm tabbed into a game whether it be fullscreen or windowed I won't crash and can just keep gaming forever. (Browser based games will crash me). Most commonly the drivers don't recover and I get a BSOD with the error Device Driver stuck in an infinite loop or the screen just sits black and doesn't change.

 

I've tried clean installing all my video drivers using DDU and updating just about everything I can think of (Windows, bios, GPU, other devices.)

 

Specs are:

Windows 7 64bit

PowerColor R9 390

i5-4670

EvGa 750 gq

Asus z97-A

16gb DDR3 ram

AoC 2236 monitor

Asus VH242H monitor

Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.1.1
