When I bought my new pc about two weeks ago, since I've turned the thing on it has had troubles Blue Screening, and and the Display Driver crashing, and sometimes recovering, sometimes not. If someone can help me out I will post the Specs.

If the driver is installed properly and your hardware is solid, it's not the driver. Completely uninstall the AMD driver and if a NVidia GPU was on the machine, uninstall it too. Run the machine on the Windows drivers, for non-gaming, for at least one hour or however long it would take to crash, unless it crashed on games only. Then when you feel it is stable in the 2D environment, install the newest AMD driver from a fresh download from AMD's site. Most often the problem is a bad PS if it is related to hardware, but you have to have some monitoring software like HWMonitor, to know all the voltages and temps of the CPU, GPU and MB, so that you can assess anything further. Please let us know what components you have too!

Okay, I am running an AMD Radeon R7 260X(PowerColor- 2Gb) series graphics card, with an Intel Core i5 4570T, 8Gb DDR3-1600 Single. With an Asus B85-Plus. My power supply is XFX Pro 550W, with a 2 TB hardrive- 7200 rpm 64mb sata3.
Also the crashing seems to occur more often on gaming, however it also occurs during normal usage. When it blue screens it says the Display driver failed to recover, and is telling me to turn off Writing Caches, and Shadowing- would you recommend this?

I did what both of you said to do. It worked. Not only does my display not cut out, and I don't crash anymore. I also have way better FPS than what I had. I was playing Crysis 3 on Ultra with 25fps- Now it plays at 53! I love you guys! You don't know how much you have helped me. Thank you.
