    Hello, hope everyone is well.
    I posted here few months ago, about a GIGABYTE R7 25XOC 2GB GDD5, which I was wondering why it makes blue screen ,freezes or crash,(display driver crashed and had to recover) mostly when opening steam , or when I was playing Ghost Recon wild-lands.
    after awhile it got stable, and could play GRW without crashing , but on steam couldn't play ,used to crash all the time.
    in my old thread I was asked few questions so the answers are - it is 2nd hand, but seems to work very well most of the time, looked new. original gigabyte(I assume).
    the reason I have it is because it is one of the very few cards that fits with my cpu (i5 660) without bottleneck.
    and seemed to be powerful enough for what I need and could afford.

    I noticed that if I install the radeon driver as it is, the radeon program makes it freeze too, so on youtube someone posted that it is better to do a manual setup using 7zip, which helped and stopped it from crashing from the RADEON prog' . but still kept crashing with steam and games I tried to play from steam.
    the last crashing started few days ago , when trying to play mafia 3, at start I could play, but then I unplugged the HDMI cable ,left with the vga cable only, and since then ...I crashed the game everytime.
    tried to uninstall and reinstall drivers ,the game , steam ... nothing helps.... no idea what to do

    when installing a driver , must I first install the manufacturer driver for the card first, and then the AMD DRIVER?

    can you recommend on a stable driver for me?

    can you advise please? I have no clue of what to do....
    thank you

    Did you do a clean install of Radeon drivers?

    What version mobo bios are you running? You may need to update the bios.
    OS?

    PROBLEM SOLVED
    at least for now.... my gpu is OC by default
    after many different tests and installations...
    I encountered a post for mad max , where he said that turning down the OC , to the basic core speed will solve the problem. well... it did but only for MAD MAX. it did not work for this one.
    so I tried to reduce the memory speed too. and took both of them down just below 1000 mhz....
    IT WORKED!
    no crashing for now , and the pc and the game well for now.
    thank you for your help , and I hope this solution will be helpful for others too
