getting constant display driver failing

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I own an ASUS DirectCU II R9 280x, and it is overlocked to 1170MHz on the core and 1780MHz on the memory. It was fine yesterday, but as of today, Im always getting display driver failure when I play games, whether it's BioShock Infinite, Hitman, Rust, etc.. I get DirectX error crashing all the time on BF4, but from what I've read everyone is getting that.

I reinstalled the driver (13.11beta8) and I'm still getting the same problem. Other than the overclock being a possibility, anything else that could be causing it?

here's a picture of a message I get when bioshock crashes

It's either the driver or overclock. So try some of the other drivers and see if the same happens. If it does happen there too, reduce overclock.

Remember a CPU overclock can cause the ATI driver to crash too.
