Odd crash with AMD GPU and Video playback??

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey,

I have an odd problem that I've been having for a while...

Sometimes, when I got to play a video, I get this...




and my PC crashes. Sometimes if I kill the video (because I have a second screen and can manage the taskbar from there) it goes away, and my desktop returns, but othertimes, my PC is frozen like this.

The screen is actually flickering, and when I reboot my PC, my screen, although displaying normally, will continue to flicker as if Its a really old CRT and I can see the refresh rate...like a really slow PWM dimming. (My panel does not use PWM), and takes several hours, usually overnight, for my PC screen to return to displaying normally.

It seems to only happen when I play videos. It does not not occur on Chrome, only on either Firefox, or from my desktop/hard drive. I haven't been able to narrow it down to a specific file type...it just seems to happen 70% of the time I try to play avideo from either Firefox or my machine.

Nope. It's heavily overclocked, but it's on water, and plays 3D intensive apps perfectly stable. I've also noticed, changing drivers sometimes cures it, but it's unique to each individual driver....for eg. it happens on official WHQL, and Beta drivers just the same.

i read that you can turn off hardware acceleration in Firefox, which may be causing your issue. if it is youtube, then just rightclick the video, go to settings and disable it.
