So the ReLive update rolled out and I decided to give it a go.

The display driver itself is ok, but ReLive has a major bug with in-browser videos(youtube as an example).

basically: when ReLive is enabled it will work just fine in-game, but when exiting a fullscreen youtube video, the image will freeze. This sometimes also happens when you switch back to a youtube tab from another website.

after about 10 seconds, windows will reset the driver.

this causes an appcrash to the ReLive executable, after ~5 seconds the system ends up with a bluescreen.

error: atikmpag.sys


when you disable ReLive, exiting from fullscreen works just fine.


the system:

Win7 Ultimate 64bit


R9 270X (XFX DD edition)


ASRock 980DE3 US3.

I might as well note down that I am using a 1280x1024 monitor, I've had some issues with this ancient resolution before

all hardware is running at stock speeds.


I also reported it to AMD but I'll post it here too in case someone finds a fix.
