    I tried again to install this drivers on a fresh windows 7 x64bit installation , only chipset drivers , Lan drivers , usb 3.0 drivers , no windows updates or nothing else were installed and still i had BSOD , i still thinking why some people have it BSOD and others do not , what is it ? hardware related ? Software related ? A mystery to be resolved :/ , but the issue its real , most of us are not noobies regarding driver installations and or hardware, so its not the user fault and definitely theres something in this driver set that its causing it. I installed 11.4 and works flawlessly , zero , nada problems at all. We need to keep submiting this info to AMD so that they can find out what they changed or did on this driver that its causing major problems with BSOD , Installation errors and GSOD on perfectly running PCs.

    x48 (intel : ) ).

    Btw i repeat: my system is rocksolid with the 11.5b, so the problem is related to the latest driver. I'm sure : ).

    There is something seriously wrong with these drivers.

    There's a few people reporting the BSOD in the AMD forums too, which is pretty bad considering how many are actually on these forums with AMD cards and have updated to 11.6 versus those that aren't, don't, and haven't!

    Ok (de gustibus), but what is the effect that "work as intended"? I think it's the first.

    New thread posted on AMD forums with the exact same BSOD i've been getting don't know if we're allowed to link ! http://forums.amd.com/game/messageview.cfm?catid=260&threadid=151795 but there you go ! i think andrewD should get on twitter and explain whats going on and if hes looking into it!

    I decided to go back to 11.5B RC5 May25th becuase i wanted the somewhat decent performance back in brink, 11.4 i couldn't get above 30fps. and yeah these installed over the top of 11.4 no problem.

    I had this problem a long time ago. It comes back after awhile and you have to reinstall windows again.

    It is memory related :

    a) ram is going bad so run memtest ram checker
    b) your hard drive where the pagefile is located or the boot drive is going bad.

    I had b... replaced the boot HD and all is fine now.

    Don't have any problems here, and I tired the driver across four setups and one laptop.

    Might be limited to some config. Haven't really seen anything in common in hardware terms on people's computers who got the BSODs.

    I have done memtest at boot and inside windos no errors, tested HD no errors.
    I think it is strange that suddenly so many should have problems with HD or memory. First time for me with AMD driver problem, i think AMD has made changes to the address space drivers are allocating, that´s the reason for page fault, maybe i am wrong i don´t know. I don´t want to start a "war" but i have just bought a GTX580, and have no problems.

    Alright, after a few days, my 24/7 desktop has BSOD-ed a few times.
    Not during boot, but after being left on for a couple of hours, and it's random; sometimes it can hold up for a day before another BSOD.
    And it's independent of what I'm currently doing; sometimes it just BSOD-ed on idle, sometimes it's when playing a game.

    In any case, I'll revert to 11.5b hotfix for now (the newest, non-8.86 available).
    I'll report back here in a couple of days.

    Go download Blue Screen Viewer or Reader and load up the last BSOD to see what it says. It can decipher most of the common BSOD issues.

    You can also email the info to AMD so they can fix it for the next hotfix if it is really driver related.

    Or try to back your gpu OC down to see if it will stabilize.

    When I moved from 11.2 hotfix (11.3 WHQL) to 11.4 betas, I had to drop my OC down since the gpu was working harder than before,overheated on stock cooler and crashed or BSOD for me on load.

    It never crashed at desktop or watching videos though. Only on full or high load during 3D apps.

    In the first picture you posted there is the "Light leaking bug" that was solved with the latest CAPs. If you think it is better in the first screenshot (as you said "de gustibus") ok, you can keep it , but the correct rendering is the second one.

    There are some cases where the light leakage is much more severe.
