Anyways heres my issue, my GPU is freezing constantly, everytime i try and do anything from open chrome, to clicking the start button. It will freeze then say "Display Driver stopped responding and has recovered." This happens ALL the time, i can't even use the PC.
Heres what i've tried so far, Fresh install of Windows, updating to SP1, Loading 11.11 Drivers, Loading 11.12 Drivers, changing the GPU from the PCIE4 to the PCIE16 slot on the MB.
I can't think of anything else, I'm in desperate need and have been trying to figure this out for over a week now...
Okay, so i ran CC Cleaner i had a few Registry errors, also had about 500 mb of crap under the applications section.. Just installed 11.12 again to see if maybe the reg fixes helped the situation... If this doesn't work i'll uninstall the Driver, and download a 10.x version..
So. I installed 10.6 but it doesn't seem to have installed my driver at all.. I went to device manager and looked at Display Adapters and it just has standard VGA Graphics, not my 6800 series Radeon...
So this is getting pretty tough, This is what i Did,
Inserted my Gigabyte Disc, updated the chipsets (even though they were already all updated), I proceeded to follow that guide you sent,
Downloaded Directx installer, updated Directx 11.
Downloaded AMD Radeon HD 6xxx 10.10 64 bit version Windows 7, installed that.
Soon as i booted up and logged in, everything looked all nice, resolution had been upgrade to 1600 x 900. Then i clicked google chrome and also opened up my computer and bam it froze up again and i got the same error.
I've looked through that entire guide and i can't seem to see anything else that could cause the problem.. Maybe its a windows update? I've been reading elsewhere and people are having an issue with a windows update for windows vista causing the same problem?
Anymore ideas refillable? thanks for all your help by the way /
Have you try Booting into safe mode, then go to device manager (Located at your control panel) then click (or expand) 'display adapter'. After that you will see your GPU there, double click on it, go to the 'driver' tab, then click uninstall. A pop up will appear and says 'are sure you want to uninstall?' or something crap like that just click yes on that. Then at the top of the device manager window search for 'scan for new hardware changes' (labeled by a computer with the magnifying glass near the computer). Then you might notice that they will show the driver of your GPU but it will show as 'Standard VGA adapter'. Then close the Device manager.
Then download the 11.11 driver in the other computer and put it on a pen drive or something similar to that. And then open the installer and it should install the 11.11 driver there. After it successfully install there reboot to normal mode (not save mode). And then you shouldn't have this issue.
