    Windows 8.1


    I recently built 2 computers with the same specs with the purpose of mining cryptocoins. Both were working fine for about a month, but then one started crashing constantly. I can turn it on and not touch anything, and it will crash after about 15-30 minutes. I tried reinstalling windows, swapping the motherboard, and swapping the memory, but none of these things have helped. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Your BSOD issue seems to be caused by AMD video driver.

    Please try the below steps.

    1. Uninstall currently installed AMD drivers properly by following How-To Uninstall AMD Catalyst Drivers From A Windows Based System

    2. Download and install 14.3 Beta driver ( released on 3/17/2014 ) from Desktop

    3. Set current power plan to "High Performance" mode.

    Wow, I never thought to update to the beta drivers. I followed your steps and it seems to be stable for the last 12 hours.

    Thank you!
