Ok, so I am getting the thread stuck in device driver blue screen on occasion when play League of Legends (roughly once ever 15 games). I have done all the steps outlined here [Tri-X R9 290X 4G D5] Thread stuck in device driver - Black screens by AMDMatt
this kind of advice is everywhere and clearly isn't my problem. the computer is (almost) brand new and this is far from a demanding game.
I have AMD Radeon R7 graphics
