I am on windows 8 and using 12.11 beta and the cap profiles with 2x7870. Did you complete fresh install? is the gpu stable on other drivers? sure someone will decipher the windows log but check all the basics first.

12.11 has intermittent issues, such as black screens and crashes sometimes in bf3 multi but I stick with it as the gains are worth it but not had any windows bsod as a result of the drivers so far

Yeh I have used 12.11 beta11 drivers on my card with windows 7 and I love them. I fresh installed windows 8 and then the graphics drivers. But I will do a fresh install again if you are saying they work ok.

can anyone tell me if all my important windows files like the ones that are in the windows/sytem32/driver file, why they are all dated like the 26/7/12 and just random like that over the past year?
I thought I did a clean install of a new OS and my files are saying they are older. is this why I am having problem with the atikmdag.sys which is dated 02/12/12 ?

if so how do I fix this ?

when I did a clean install of windows 8 should I of removed/deleted the small partition as well as formatting the hard drive ? because I left the small partition there, this has the important windows 7 boot file or something on it doesn`t it ? I just formatted the partition with windows 7 on it. is this why I have older dated files in my windows folder on my C drive ?
