Amd driver stopped responding and has recovered

my rig :

GPU : SAPPHIRE HD 7950 3GB OC GDDR5

CPU : Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40GHz‏, ‎3401 Mhz

i tried formating my pc , change DTR from registry, installed old/new/beta drivers (with driver sweeper too)
and basically im lost.

i just replaced this card from http://images.bit-tech.net/content_images/2012/01/amd-r... (same HD 7950 but another stlye , 1 fan only).

Full system specs are helpful... ie: cpu, gpu, ram, psu, hdd, ssd, etc.

Driver stopped responding is usually indicative of a bad oc. If you're using the reference clocks then downclock the card and see if the issues stop. If so, contact the retailer you bought it from and ask for a replacement.

i didn't overclocked my gpu at all.

anyway i'm trying now to reduce default values.

GPU Clock : 650 now.
Memory Clock : 900 .

btw , i just want to mention again - i can play games like battlefield 3 all day long at ultra with no issues , but when it comes to browser games included flash games and none flase games or bsplayer , this problem starts.

anyway , thanks alot for your answer .

Try re-installing drivers and re-installing flash. Could be the browser as well.

I run 2 sapphire 7950's. The ONLY time I have had this crash was with a voltage/overclock issue. Check your voltage (not in CCC, you need Sapphires Trixx). With my 7950's even though they're both by sapphire and look identical by default they have different voltages. I noticed my original one is set to run at .993 volts. This is low compared to most 7950's. If your card is set to the same, try bumping your voltage up just slightly (when I overclock I set the voltage to 1.175). I've also found on this card with the low voltage, that making any type of clock or voltage adjustments in Catalyst vs Trixx causes the crash.
