So basically my Driver or GFX crashes leaving this screen and stuttering sound in the beginning and after a few secs no sound with a restart required.


This only seems to happen under heavy load like Battlefield 4 and Diablo 3 RoS.


My System:

GFX: Radeon HD 7950

CPU: FX 8350

PSU: 650W


M/B: ASrock 970 Pro 3

Screen: acer K272HL DVI, no adapters

Driver version: Crimson software 16.5.1 (It happened with the previous version too)

Windows 10 64Bit


DxDiag in Attachement


Cheers, Oppenheimer


Edit #1: The driver crashes and restores sometimes while using Firefox

Edit #2: Uninstalled Beta and Reinstalled Crimson v16.3.2, did not fix my problem (05/10/2016, 18:15)

Edit #3: Made a Windows Roll-back to an earlier state, works fine until now, going to update this post soon (05/10/2016, 19:05)

Edit #4: Diablo just made my PC crash again (05/10/2016, 19:42)

Edit #5: As I have this problem for 3 days now, I see a correlation between time of day and crash frequency (the later it gets the denser the crashes are)

             Also something new happened, after every crash I have to reset my BIOS AND move my RAM, maybe my RAM is broken? (05/10/2016, 21:02)

Edit #6: Ran Memtest on my first 4Gigs of RAM and my PC did fine until roughly 70%, then again it crashed.

              I made a new DxDiag and found the same error in all my diags: RADAR_PRE_LEAK_64 and RADAR_PRE_LEAK_WOW64. (05/10/2016, 22:54)

Edit 7#: I think I found the baddy:


He caused alot of crashes, at least I had way more crashes with him, ordering new RAM, is HyperX Fury good? (05/11/2016, 17:01)

Edit #8: Tested out different RAM, crashed again, will test different GPU soon. (05/12/2016, 20:55)
