Hello everyone,

I brought new PC week ago and I keep getting a BSOD problem.

I don't know what is the reason for that, I have all my drivers updated and all the parts are brand new.

The wired thing is that I don't get BSOD during gaming (tried heavy gaming like AC4).

I only get it when I am web surfing, maybe watching youtube or something.

My specs are:
Intel i5 4590
Gigabyte H81-HD3
Corsair VS650
Gigabyte R9 290 OC edition (GV-R929OC-4GD)
Kingston HyperX 8GB RAM

Why is that happened and what should I do?

I got the same problem with Sapphire 290 . doesn't happen very often , like once in a week.
it must be related to hw acceleration in flash , and video decoding . You may disable them ,and see what happends.

Other than this, usual advices , update to the latest bios, and drivers . Uninstall -if any- older video card drivers . Try a fresh windows install .

From BIOS .
Also be sure that you have latest driver for all your hardware , specially your graphics card and motherboard.
Tough i highly suspect the problem is somewhere else. Getting BSOD while streaming video or playing video with hw acceleration seems to be a more than rare problem. I havent seen anyone offering a real solution for this .

every motherboard has different options. Check of IGP , graphics priority etc .
And at the end , it may work, but didnt work at my end.

Another solution is , this problem maybe caused by the Catalyst center. Unistall all AMD software then download the lastest drivers but do not install CC , just install the drivers.

Also , there is another solution that may work. Check this thread.
