    Display Driver crashes when playing games.


    Hi All, Been a while, this forum helped me a lot and is now my go to for some questions.

    I have an issue, my graphics card which is an AMD Radeon R9 270 is crashing at certain points of game playing. Im sure a message pops but im stuck in the game and frozen that I have to CTRL+ALT+DEL to get out of it and the mouse doesn't work so i end task using the keyboard.


    I have the .evtx file if need be maybe someone can look at it and tell me exactly whats the causing the issue.

    Thanks a lot

    Have you monitored temperatures? What version driver do you have installed?

    I have AMD catylyst software 4.12. Also my temps look normal. I also uninstalled the drivers with the uninstaller tool that removes all traces of your video card and makes your system ready for a fresh driver install. But that did not work either.

    Thanks!
