OS: Windows 7-64 bit system
Ram: 8Gbs piony, two 4gbs sticks
Motherboard: Gigabyte 880gm-usb3
Processor: AMD Phenom II x4 (3.4Ghz)
GPU:Radeon HD 5570
Power Supply: 850watts

Problem:Freezing for about 15-30 secs while playing a game, but has also happened while just watching videos, then flashing to the desktop greeted by this error message, AMD Display drivers have crashed and recovered successfully.

The problem started randomly while playing apb reloaded, even on the lowest settings in all areas, Also when playing Fallout 3. The same problem also occurred while i had a GeForce GTS 250 graphics card in. Even after updating all of my drivers, most of them were already up to date, it still happened. I just did a clean install of windows 7, first game i tried to play was Dead Frontier, a browser shooter. 30 secs into the game my computer freezes and the display drivers crash

If happened with two diff cards then you should check your RAM with memtest. It could be faulty board also. Altough you have 850W (don't know which and how old) it may be faulty also and not providing stable current and voltage to PCI-E slot.

Run furmark to stress your GPU and to see will happen in there.
Also you may try to roll back drivers by couple versions.

i did the 720 benchmark got the score of SCORE:609 points (10 FPS, 60000 ms)
it would not allow me to do the 1080 benchmark it just kept saying to choose another resolution
(on multiple choices)

What kind of monitor you have? Maybe it didn't allow you because monitor does not handle greater resolutions.

What was GPU temp during test?

the temp stayed around 50-57 around the middle to the end, the monitor i have is a Hanns-G Hz194a

Of course, your monitor does not allow you greater resolutions.

Run memtest to make sure that your memory is ok.

Download it and run for several hours.

You can try to see if this behaviour will occur with just one stick of ram

Roll back drivers to catalyst

The problem is still occurring, and i have not found a fix. If anyone else looks at this topic any help would be appreciated.
