7970 Black Screen Crash

February 14, 2013 4:40:46 PM

I am experiencing crashes several times per day while playing Tera. I've tried all available drivers for ATI starting from 12.3 up to 13.2 beta 5, they all seem to cause the crash. It happens more frequently with the 13.2 beta 5. My in-game graphics/mouse freeze, after 4-5 seconds my PC monitor goes black and the power turns off like it's in sleep mode/idle. I have to hard reboot, Ctrl+Alt+delete doesn't work. Is anyone else having these issues? My specs are below.
