PROBLEM 1
I always get a bsod when trying to play a youtube video in no matter which browser (chrome, IE, firefox). I've found a workaround by right-clicking and disabling hardware acceleration.

PROBLEM 2
Playing videos in windows media player. A lot of the time when i try playing a vid in wmp it starts bugging out and crashes and i get a message saying "Display driver has stopped working and has recovered"

PROBLEM 3
When trying to get a 'score' on the windows experience index it crashes and the same error appears "Display driver has stopped working and has recovered"...

I've done everything i could think of reinstalled drivers updated drivers reinstalling windows 7, seriously nothing helps...

My graphics are two 5870's.

Do your cards work fine simultaneously ?

Update your driver with the latest one or even the old drivers like 10.3/10.4, that's the most stable driver for now...

Or you can try each card individually to make sure they works fine or not.

Tried that. And each one is good but even with one card the problems exists... and tried that old driver stuff and that doesn't seem to do anything.. I just use VLC and i have no score and i don't use hardware acceleration and things are fine but these problems shouldn't be here to begin with... There are several people who have similar problems but there doesn't seem to be a fix.. I never had these kind of problems with Nvidia though... My next pc isn't going to be ati. Their support sucks

Have you OC'd anything ?
As leon said we need to know your PSU, but if its adequate ,then probably both of your cards are defective, so you may need to RMA it.
However,before RMA'ng, try this method and it may help
Set your 2D clocks to 400/900,here is how:
1_Open CCC and choose Overdrive tab,unlock the settings(by clicking on the " Gold Key" icon)
2_Go top options,profile and choose profile manager.
3_In the composition tab,choose "The following settings" and in the "ATI Radeon HD 5900 series"make sure only ATI overdrive is checked.
Then enter a profile name,then save and close it(Do not activate).
4_Go to C:\Users\Your UserName\AppData\Local\ATI\ACE\Profiles (Its hidden so make sure you unlock hidden files and folders)
5_Open the profile with wordpad and do this edits:
<Feature name="CoreClockTarget_0">
<Property name="Want_0" value="40000" /> (default is 15700)

<Feature name="MemoryClockTarget_0">
<Property name="Want_0" value="90000" /> (default is 30000)


Save the changes and close.

6_Open CCC,in options tab go to profiles,profile manager and choose the profile that you saved before and then click on Activate and close.


Also if you have bought a faulty card it doesn't mean that all of their products are bad,there are always satisfied/dissatisfied user with a specific product.

What is your PSU(Brand and Model)?

1.if the cards are OC'd even just 1mhz over CCC's limits it will crash on flash with hardware acceleration enabled, just turn it off for good, it's only an advantage if you're using a low end notebook with integrated graphics.

2 and 3. set your cards back to stock settings and see if it still happens

What PSU are you using? How many times do we need to ask for that information? Do you know how to get that information or you are deliberately ignoring the question?

If you mean power supply unit.. i mean it's just a generic one it doesn't even say the voltage do you think that may be the reason?

It's not the voltage but the wattage that's important.
