    Thread stuck in device driver


      I'm getting this error every time i try to play something. I get the BSOD. I tried to clean install again and it didn't worked . What should i do next?

      OS: W10 64

      CPU: i7-2600k 3.4ghz

      RAM: 12gb

      GPU: r7 360

      Driver: Radeon Software Version 18.8.2

          Are you overclocking the CPU at all?  This kind of thing is common when overclocking the CPU with too low a voltage.

          What kind of RAM do you have?  Speed?  Timings?  Brands?

          Mismatched RAM can also cause this and all sorts of strange issues, especially when overclocking, or on a previously overclocked CPU.  That chip is a bit old, and it's IMC may not be able to handle the mismatch any more.

          You might want to disable any overclocks using by loading BIOS defaults and pull the 4 gigger (if you are running 4GB and 8GB sticks), or if you have three 4GB sticks, pull the one that is in single-channel out, and see if it continues.

          If that doesn't fix things, try a different CPU chip (try using the same model), and if that doesn't work, try a different GPU, and if that doesn't work, it might be the motherboard or PSU.

            why 3 4gb sticks? you run async channel - that can cause problems


            especially if you push it to limits

                btw - with 18.12.2 i also got bluescreens (mainly because of my risky ram oc) etc
                you should try 18.12.3 and test again
