Display driver stopped responding and has recovered - ATI HD 7770

    Question

  • Every time I play a game it'll be alright for like 5-30 minutes and then suddenly it will crash.
    I have no idea what's causing it and I've tried the following:
    - Reinstalled DirectX and installed previous versions of DirectX with no sign of improvement.
    - Rolled back to several older versions of Catalyst Drivers and I am now on the 12.6 Beta with no improvement & I've reinstalled too many times.
    - Updated Bios for my motherboard
    - I've even tried formatting and it didn't work.

    As a test, as soon as I start Call of Duty 4 it crashes straight away. During gameplay of Skyrim and BF3 it does the same after a certain amount of minutes.

    Windows 7 Ultimate x64
    Gigabyte HD 7770 OC (12.6 Beta Driver)
    Corsair Vengeance 8 GB RAM 1600 MHz
    Asus P8H77-M LE Motherboard (Bios updated)
    850 Watt Thermaltake PSU
    i5 3570K @ 3.4 GHz
    E2341 LG Monitor

    I have a DxDiag file if you'd like to have a look at that also.

  • First off, never run beta drivers.  Beta anything comes with bugs and glitches which is the point in being in a beta program but don't rely on it for a solution.  I suggest finding drivers that are 2 revisions back and using those.  AMD has an archive of drivers on their driver website and you can use those.  Hope that helps!

  • To check the event logs and have a hardware troubleshooting.  Does error code or message appear when the game crashes? In the meantime, you may contact manufacture for official  formal drivers and reinstall them.
