Alright, so for over a month now, while doing anything on my PC, or nothing I will get random flashes, sometimes white, sometimes just multicoloured. After having my PC Do that to me 3-10 times in a row, it will give me a black screen. I am always forced to restart my PC at this time. I've checked my screensaver so I don't look dumb and I've tried to search about it and have found nothing. One day I was playing my internet based game and my screen had a longer white flash and then in the bottom right corner of my screen it said "Display driver has stopped working and has recovered" After seeing this I immediately went and looked it up, the best answer that I found on a youtube video was that I was overclocking my memory too much. I have no idea how to overclock and I've never done it, but I guess the owner before me did. So I opened up AMD Catalyst control centre and went into performance and saw that memory overclocking was at 1750mhz which is almost at max, heres my question: Is this the reason why my screen flickers and goes black? If so, what should I set my mhz to for memory overclocking? (Again, specs are listed above)
Thanks to anyone who read this and is willing to help. All help is appreciated!
