Hi,

Whenever I launch afterburner, it causes my PC to crash.
Only seems to happen when afterburner is launched.

I've tried uninstalling, re installing and I've tried different versions of it, but to no avail...
When I launch it, the screen freezes and the sound just loops/buzzes.

i5-2500 @ 3.3GHz
12GB DDR3 @ 1333MHz
XFX R9 290 Double D
Sapphire R9 290 Tri-X
ASrock Z77 Extreme 4
XFX 850W Silver
Corsair H55 Liquid Cooling
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

Latest windows drivers and I have 14.4 Catalyst.

Regards,
Jared.

Doesn't matter. You don't have an MSI GPU -- you don't even have an MSI motherboard -- so MSI Afterburner isn't going to work with your system.
