Did you update to the latest drivers from AMD.

the "driver has stop responding but recovered" error usually means you have a faulty video card, most likely faulty vram. You can test your vram by downloading video memory stress test from here http://mikelab.kiev.ua/index_en.php?page=programs/vmt_e...

run that program and check continuous test. If you get errors then you know you have a faulty vram, if you're not getting any errors let it complete at least 6 passes. I've had ram fail after the 2/3 pass, so its best to complete multiple passes just to be sure.

If your card is bad and still under warranty then try to rma it, if its not under warranty you are kinda SOL and need to buy a replacement.
