  1. Is this something that you can repeat and correct following a the same steps multiple times? If so, could you tell us.

    Is this something that happens while alt-tabbed out of a game or if you open it before you go into a game.

    And does it happen every single time or most times.

    Also, what operating system do you use?

    Sorry how vague i was. i was on the phone with amd. Im running windows 7 64bit. with an amd 1090t. it happens every single time. restart my computer play game good. leave computer on for 3 days play a game good.. open catalyst game runs really slow.. close catalyst in task menu game still runs slow. after catalyst has been opened i have to reboot my computer. i wonder if its certain settings i have conflicting with certain games i play.. im playing mafia 2, medal of honour, just beet metro. they all had the problem.. world of warcraft does not seem to be affected by it but i was told wow is more of a cpu dependent game. any ideas at all are much apreaciated.

    just to note. i have un installed the drivers, cleaned my regristry used driver sweeper the whole deal and re installed and same thing.. its happened ever sence i got my 6870. on patch 10.10, 10.11 and now 10.12
