GPU crashing with error message "amd display driver has crashed and recovered"

So I built my computer with a MSI R9 270X GAMING 2G GPU. I have installed and reinstalled my drivers, but whenever I play a video or play a game, my screen turns black and then recovers with the message in the title. I have tried the solutions on youtube and what I googled but nothing works.
I am running Windows 7
I downloaded the drivers from the AMD and the MSI website, and have also tried the disc the GPU came with.
My PSU is 750W.
I am not overclocking. I have been using youtube videos as test and it crashes every minute or so. My friend has suggested sending a ticket to MSI support.
So I rebooted my OS and this problem still happens. I put my GPU into my friends computer and it works fine there.
Please help.

Where do I find an older driver? or do I just try all the older drivers?

Also when i put the GPU in to my friends computer, the gpu worked with the drivers I had installed now.

jon could be a few things...could be a bios bug. make sure your mb bios is up to date and the mb chipset drivers are up to date. the other issue could be the power supply is sending dirty power to your pc/gpu (ac ripple) or the 12v power is not holding within atx spec. run hardware monitor and or mb bios power monitor and see if the 12v line stay within atx spec. if you have a volt meter check the 12v power to the video card. if you have a spare power supply use it for testing.

Thanks, I updated my BIOS. which then downloaded a PCI driver, which made everything else work.
