[Solved] ATI AMD Driver TImeout when playing games

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
when i play MW2 and MW3 my video drivers crash and try to reload 2-3 times and then my system just freezes. so far it seems this only happens in these 2 games and i havent particularly seen it ever before. im running on a fresh install of win7 and am using 12.2 drivers. ive got main monitor on my 5970 while 2 extras on my 6450. this is a recent problem that ive only seen these past few days. another question is when i installed amd drivers. i had both gpus in at the same time. is this ok? or should i have installed main one only then added the second card after?

Are you overclocked? Typically driver crashes = unstable overclock if you're lucky, sice you can lower clocks. If yer not oc'ing, hmm no bueno. What driver is installed btw?
