EDIT: OP, before claiming these drivers kill cards, Have you tried reverting back to stock speeds & checking for the freezes/reboots?

Its not, i just want people to know that it was a mistake by me and not AMD.

Maybe someone that reads this has a similar problem, they need to try that before blaming AMD.

I had a crazy crash yesterday... switched display to my HDMI display and shortly after the screen showed vertical green and blue stripes and the speakers started buzzing. Had to reboot the system. Nothing turned up in Event Viewer. Thing is it seems like a failing hardware issue, except everything's been fine since then and I've been gaming and watching films too. In over a year and a half of owning this build (GPU is only ~a year old) I've never experienced any BSODs or system crashes or anything of the sort. Still freaking me out a little... no idea what it was. The reason I'm posting here is because the only thing I've changed recently is my graphics driver. I haven't even plugged any USB devices in. I suppose it would be premature to blame the driver (maybe one of my components is about to die :/, or I'm hoping it was somehow a freak incident) but I thought I'd post here anyway just in case.

Windows 8 x64, HD 7950.

I think it's completely normal and even good to have a healthy scepticism of new user reports about "driver" problems. That said I still want to know what the hell happened to my PC yesterday...

I reverted back to my stock settings on my CPU OC and also my GPU OC. Still the same thing...

Seriously?! Does that even freaking matter... sheesh... If you have nothing helpful to say, don't bother posting.

I clearly state an example of someone who's card died. The point was to get the attention of others who are having the same issue and potentially stop them from killing their cards too. We are all familiar with the nVidia cards burning up and catching on fire... or did we forget that since it was only a few weeks ago?

Oh and no one is having issues at all.. obviously I'm the only one making it up. rolleyes.gif




I just don't get some people... I took that part out... happy? mad.gif

It's ironic that you used "killed cards" in the original title when the fact is that no cards are dead and it's all down to varying degrees of user error. Like in the link you posted, killed dead card ends up still working lol. doh.gif

If your referring to my post, my card is indeed dead. Whether the drivers killed it or not I believe they did. No physical damage to the card after inspecting it and it died within 30 minutes of installing the 13.8 drivers. Make your own conclusion.
