Hey, I have 2 cfed Radeon HD 5870s, and whenever I play a game in fullscreen mode, after about 5-15 minutes the game freezes, and either blue screens right away, or it crashes to desktop, then the popup bubble says the display driver stopped working, and in 4 seconds it bluescreens....

I have not overclocked anything in my computer, and my drivers are latest

Uninstall your current Catalyst drivers and install this 12.1 version. i had the same problem but this solved it. Thats the driver, only select 12.1. NOT 12.2 cap.

Bump, I have less crashes, but I recently played CoD MW2 and the display drivers stopped working(game froze and I alt tabbed and saw it briefly), the same thing happened before except when I alt tabbed back i bsod'd, I did not alt tab back this time so i didnt bsod, now I am writing this :p
