Display Driver stopped responding HELP!!!

I recently got my Sapphire 6870 1GB card. I get the error message "Display Driver has stopped responded but recovered". My problem is that I bought Battlefield 3 and I would like to play it.

My graphics card gets this issue on-
11-12
11-10
11-9
11-8
11-7
Amd Catalyst Drivers

On 11-6 is works fine and dandy but I need at least 11-7 for Battlefield 3. I know it isnt the card itself but I do not know what to do. Should I upgrade to Windows Ultimate and hope that helps? I really dont want to RMA anything because I have no patience.

Please help me.

  1. Also doesnt work on 11-11. Just tried
  2. What is your spec's? Did you do a complete driver sweep? Where are you downloading the drivers from?
  3. yeah, use driver sweeper remove all drivers you may have including any old nvidia drivers if you have any. Also you may want to try the 12.1 preview drivers, you'll need to google it and find the download link.

    I was able to run BF3 on 11.12 however just fine, I'm running HD6870 X2 in crossfire.

    Totally off topic but are you actually using the 6870 X2 cards in crossfire? Or are you just using 2 regular ones? I was kinda wondering about the performance.

    Oh, no two regular 6870's in crossfire.
  6. 12.1 beta doesnt work, 12.1 doesnt work, and 12.2 beta doesnt work
    (12.1 beta wroked for a few days)

    Specs:
    i5 2500k @3.3GHz with Cooler Master Hyper 520 N
    Asrock Extreme 3 Gen 3 Z68
    Sapphire 6870
    8gbs Ram 1600MHz
    500gb HardDrive


    My usual at desktop temps are 30-40
  7. Also,

    Cosair TX 750
    Haf 922 Case
  8. Have you removed all of your old drivers? You used a program called driver sweeper? Are you downloading the drivers from AMD or Sapphire?
  9. I download the drivers from AMD.
    Yes I use driver sweeper every time in safe mode when I want to change the update.
    I switched back to 11.6. Cant play Saints Row The third or Battlefield 3 anymore.
    I message Sapphire about it. Hope them help me.
  10. One more question and I should have asked it sooner. What is the brand and size of your PSU? The reason I ask is. You have a nice rig and you should not have these problems. If your PSU is not the problem then It looks like it is your card has issues.
  11. Cosair TX 750 watt
    Normal size, i guess

    I am new to this whole thing
  12. Your PSU is a nice one. The size is the 750w. How are you monitoring your temps? How long has your computer been on before the problem accured? Or does it accure only when trying to start the game?
  13. you have anything in the background while playing?
  14. It occurs every minute or so when not using 11.6 drivers (im using them now)
    There is nothing in the background at all
    Temps are 30-40 C

    Did you solve the issue?
    I have the same problem at the moment.

    Intel 2400
    P67 Pro3 SE
    8Gb Ram
    HIS 6870
    1TB hitachi
    600 CX2 powersupply

    I can run BF3 fine for about 2 hours, then i get a full pc freeze.
    League of legends froze after 5min, i had to alt-tab to prevent full pc freeze. After 3 times it freezes no matter what.
    I enabled Anti-Aliasing in CCC and league of legends doesn't freeze anymore.
    Tho i get some random errors + freeze "AMD video driver has stopped working and recovered"
  16. i could not even enter bf3, it froze at the loading screen( HD7850, sapphire) After installing the, leaked, 12.5 catalyst everything runs smooth as icecream
