Weird glitch while browsing with 7970

When I browse, I frequently get these black boxes that are persistent and will not go away: http://puu.sh/2jpqq/df096f6c9a

I have tried about 5-6 different driver versions, and it still happens. Anyone have any ideas?

Are you bitcoin mining or doing anything else in the background? Have you tried using a different internet browser?

I believe these sorts of issues started appearing with like the 12.9 or maybe the 12.11 drivers - I forget which. I only really have issues with it while my cards are bitcoin mining in the background, and some driver revisions have been better with Firefox and some better with Chrome.
I am absolutely doing nothing at all in the background. The only process I have open is Chrome, and it happens constantly.

Try Firefox and see if the issue still comes up.


It does, but very rarely. It mostly happens with Chrome and games.

Hmmmmm that's bad if it's happening in games. Anything overclocked?

I haven't overclocked anything at all, no :/
