I'm a huge fan of Firefox and have really never had this kind of issue before. But it's driving me to the point of using another browser.

The issue is that every time I go to something that uses Hardware Acceleration my second monitor flickers.
The only way to disable/fix this is to disable Hardware Acceleration but the issue on this is that sites like YouTube are effected; I can no longer fullscreen youtube videos because they are all pixelated cause there is no hardware acceleration being used and the only way to fix this is have a video with 1080p quality.

Is there anyway to fix this without disabling hardware acceleration?

Graphics; Radeon 5770
Resolution 1920x1080.

I have no idea how to do this and is it the same as OCing as I really don't wanna overclock my graphics card as I hear it kills it faster.

You can do it using AMD Overdrive in the Catalyst Control Center - yes its overclocking the memory on the graphics card. I had a 5750 with the same problem - the memory clock doesn't run fast enough to keep the two monitors in sync so you get the flickering. Doesn't happen all the time, sometimes only with one program (in your case Firefox).

The amount of life that overclocking decreases on your graphics card is negligible, and to that I say welcome to Overclock.net

Do I over-ride the existing CPU settings?

And how much would I increase it by?

(Are you sure it's only a small decrease?)

Ah that's settings for your CPU - you'll need to open the Catalyst Control Center (for your graphics card). It should have been installed when you installed your graphics drivers.

And yes, we're not even going to touch the GPU core clock - only the memory clock.

Also try to clean install your video card drivers. Use driver sweeper to clean and then update to the latest with CCC.

He linked the correct drivers from the looks of it.
It bluescreened in middle of installation? did you clean the previous drivers properly?

Try safe mode.

If you can't even login to windows / it BSOD's before it boots then try logging in safe mode: Instructions

Once in the windows, clean the drivers and install them again: Instructions

I finally got it fixed and installed the Beta Driver.

Here is where I'm at. -



But when I increase it, it looks like ;



I tested the clock as well and it failed the test. I have no idea what to do and really need some type of current response.

Did updating the drivers solve the issue already or is it still the same?
Your temps look fine. If the test fails at 1445mhz then put it a little lower, like 1440mhz then a little more lower and so on until it passes.
