I am still having a similar problem windows 7 will probably not help, try latest 16.11.2 driver, use ddu to uninstall first in safe mode, make sure you have all the latest updates from widows update, the install latest driver. cured some issues for me but not all.
I made some progress with old 13.9 drivers on windows 8.1....
I think I found solution but need more testing. I think that MSI Afterburner was causing the crashes. Im on 14.4 drivers now and installed only dipslay driver not CCC but I think its not drivers problem but afterburner.
Nope , still crashes but what I done next:
- In Afterburner, i downclocked the card. I have MSI OC version which is bumped to 820/1100 mhz from factory 775/1000mhz. For 2 days no crash. Still, thats a small time frame for conclusion.
If crash, i have a few other solutions to try:
- Bump a voltage a bit to GPU
- TDR tweak in windows registry (google it)
-reseat and clear PCI slot and card
- delete atikmpag.sys and atikmdag.sys files and then reinstall drivers again (doubt in that method but worked for some people)
I passed Heaven and Valley benchmarks on ultra even before downclocking a card.
Ill report what I have done.
I downclock to AMD factory setting in MSI Afterburner from fabric 820/1100 mhz to 775/1000mhz.
Also maybe it can be done with increasing voltage.
