Revert to a previous stable AMD driver like 12.10 or 12.8.

Thanks for replying,

- I have completly uninstalled amd drivers and reinstalled the latest one again, but I was still having the same problem
- Uninstalled again and tried the original ones that came in the card's cd, but was still having the same problem.

Please help :(

Hello

I have tried too many things to fix my problem but no luck:

- Formatted my pc then installed a fresh new windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, was running fine, until I installed the amd catalyst and the problem started happening again.

- I made a stress test to see if the problem is caused by overheating, by opening four fullhdmovies at the same time and leaving them playing for a while.
The card temperature and fan speed were both normal

- Started a heavy browser flash-based game and played it for around an hour, had no issue.

So I'm now kind of assured that the problem is not hardware related but software, but why wasn't it fixed after reinstalling windows and making a clean drivers installation.

Please help!

Sounds like a hardware problem to me. Have you tried reseating the graphics card? Also, post complete PC specs including CPU, RAM, Motherboard, Graphics card, HDD, SSD(if any), and especially the PSU make, model, wattage and available current on the 12v rail. It could be that your PSU is getting weak.
