Radeon HD 7970 - Weird colors

Hi. I recently installed an XFX Radeon HD 7970 in my friends PC, installed the drivers using the auto-detect programm from AMD and connected it via HDMI to a TV. At first, everything seemed fine, until all the colors suddenly got messed up, everything went blue-ish, like the colors got inverted. I rebooted the PC and it seemed fixed, nothing happend during one hour of testing and benchmarking. But apparently, it happened again yesterday at random times without any visible pattern.

I have no clue what the problem could be and how to fix it. I probably would delete the drivers using Driver Sweeper and install them again, maybe even a previous driver version like 12.4 (13.1 *should* be installed right now, though I haven't checked). Would you recommend this, or is there anything else I could do?

I hope you can help me, many thanks in advance!

A lot of times colors go off if a connector is loose. I don't like HDMI as it has no way to secure the connection like DVI, VGA, or Display Port. It may be a bad cable too.
