    This is only what happened. This was not classic bsod with error details. There's also no dump files in minidump folder.

    1 month of using windows 7 and there were more bsods, errors than in 1 year when I was using windows 7. 8 is very good but problems appear much often than in 7

    Try this
    1. Reconnect the monitor cable
    2. update your graphics driver to the latest version

    I hope you have not installed the beta version of the drivers.

    I am not very familiar with AMD drivers.

    Just verify you have the latest stable drivers
