Windows 10: Major Issue with my system.

    Major Issue with my system.

    I am having problems on my desktop with a AMD Radeon R9 200 Series. I had that graphics card and driver running just fine on windows 7 prior to just upgrading to Windows 10 like I did recently. It seems that for some reason the drivers seems to be old or new consider I've tried both old and new drivers in attempt to fix this but none of them are working, are causing system instability and causing graphical artifacts and crashing within minutes of a game starting up. Does anyone know of a way to fix this? My friend has the same drivers but is running on windows 7 and he is not having any issues so i'm almost sure this is a problem with windows 10. The only time the drivers don't screw things up are when i'm on my desktop not playing any games but when I launch anything, within minutes the graphical artifacts completely screw my computer resulting in an eventual full grey screen and than a grey screen resulting in me needing to restart my computer. I have tried older drivers, the newest driver, I tried fully wiping the drivers to make sure there wasn't anything old remaining but still to no avail and I have nowhere to turn and am tempted to go back to windows 7 as it seems to be the only way to fix this? Does anyone have suggestions or a possible fix I may have gone over for this? Thanks! - I also get the windows 10 error "thread stuck in device driver"
    These are my system specs if it helps any:
    Computer type:PC/Desktop
    OS: Windows 10 64bit
    CPU: CPU Type Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-4160 CPU @ 3.60GHz
    Motherboard:Z97S SLI Krait Edition (MS-7922)
    Memory: System Memory 16 GB Memory Type GDDR5
    Graphics Card(s): Graphics Chipset AMD Radeon R9 200 Series
    I was looking around and this help thread has a picture of exactly what I get

    I also did some digging and found out it may be overheating so I got these logs see if this indicates anything. GPU-Z Sensor Log At around line 523 is where my computer goes crazy prior to the crash

    Welcome to Ten-Forums !

    Your GPU link is blank, this can be a cause of overheating. Check inside case for failing fans on GPU or even CPU, dust accumulation on fans or heatsinks. Other possible causes, Graphics card is going bad, not seated properly and PSU (Power Supply) issue.
    Motherboard have integrated GPU, if so try that ?

    To be able to monitor in game need combination of 2 software usually, MSI afterburner is good and HWInfo.
    Together can check temps in game, but would suggest rerunning your Temps again and repost them with either HWInfo or HWMonitor both free software.

    Alright, I think I got it. HWMonitor
    -I think I managed to capture this while it was clustering with graphical artifacts. HWMonitorv2

    From what i can see from that report the CPU temps look o.k. and GPU Temps did to, but not sure anyway to screen capture HWMonitor to see it differently to make sure for both. Try also HWInfo and post screen shot of sensors only for all hardware as i would also like to see voltage of the PSU (Power Supply).

    I know you have tired different driver and it worked on Windows 7 just before this OS change, things can always happen all of a sudden so we can't dismiss hardware issues but it also still can be due to drivers of the card or conflicts with other drivers and if not that the card is failing.

    I see you also have a GPU integrated by connections listed on your motherboard site as a test unless you have another Graphics card try that to see how it reacts, i am not sure of specs of the integrated GPU.

    Also have you updated system drivers for Windows 10 from this site since the upgrade to Windows 10 ?
