    Seems like a lot of people are experiencing similar issues and it seems to be caused by the latest AMD driver. The best fix is to remove the existing driver and download and install Version: 8.970.100.9001 [01/13/2015]

    You are welcome. I have fixed many with this simple fix. May be worth pinning due to All the issues such as BSOD, Black screens, Screens being resized, Windows stretching off the screen and more

    You will notice in my posting #2, #9 and #12 I recommended older driver. It has worked in several cases. The trick is finding right driver for each device.

    For my AC7260 wireless card it is a 2014 driver.

    I'm not a fan of updating drivers for the sake of updating drivers. If a driver is working I tend to leave it alone until it has to be updated, BSOD's.

    Not everyone will share this view.

    Try the following

    1. In Device Manager, right click on the Display Adapter Driver and choose Update Driver2. Choose 'Browse my computer'3. Choose 'Let me pick from a list...'4. Choose an older driver - Version: 8.970.100.9001 [01/13/2015]) and click Next

    Thanks for all the advice guys i do appreciate it and a couple of the posts got me stable. Unfortunately it just wont go tho, no matter version of drivers or even windows 8. Something is wierd, tried my buddys card today and it was fine so im wondering if something has gone sideways with the hard ware. Either way, im in the market for an nvidia now haha
