Hello,

My display driver seems to crash on specific games and it is not because my card can't handle it since it crashes on low-end games aswell, while it still can handle some newer games just fine. The frequency of the crashes can be reduced by underclocking my card to down from 800 to 750Hz. I have tried many solutions with each one having no success. I've swept my drivers, downgrading and upgrading the version (currently on 12.10) and also bought a new PSU, upgrading from a weak coolmaster to a XFX PRO550.

I have no idea on what to try next. Does anyone have any idea on fixing this issue?

My specs:

M2N68-LA motherboard
AMD Athlon II X2 240
4 GB RAM
Diamond Radeon HD 6670 2GB GDDR3
XFX PRO 550W

Is it freezing momentarily and then giving you a message that "amd display driver stopped responding and has successfully recovered"? If so download driver sweeper and install. Boot into safemode (tap F8 on bootup) and run driver sweeper. Select Amd-display and click Analyse and when it's finished that click Clean and it will ask for a restart. Apon restarting enter back into safemode and into device manager. In device manager expand Display Adapters, right click on Ati Radeon 6670, select unistall and a confirm window will open. In that window select delete the driver software for this device. Reboot into Windows and reinstall 12.1, but only install the driver. All the crap Amd puts in the software package causes nothing but headaches for many people running their graphics cards.

I've tried this before, but haven't tried only installing the driver, i'll look into that.

Also, I've made a log of my stats for my card while playing games and at a point of a crash, the voltage to the card drops from 1.050V to 0.900V as well as the memory and GPU speed.

I don't know if this is becuase of software or a hardware related issue.

I would aim for the software as I just encountered the same issue. They put crap in their software package that most user's don't need or would use.

Installed only the driver this time, still crashes.

Only thing that's helping right now is underclocking my card, it helps reduce the amount of crashes.
