@Askin: I'm aware that you've already tried removing CCC, but I only had a quick look through this thread but it looks like you haven't tried turning Hardware Acceleration off yet. Here's what worked for me... 1. Uninstalled Catalyst Control Center (CCC). 2. Disabled Hardware Acceleration in Adobe Flash (mainly used for YouTube), Firefox and IE. When I first got this gfx card (Gigabyte Radeon R9 290x), I was getting blue screens every 2-3 days on average. They would occur weather I'm running a high gfx demanding game or a game that can be run on 256 colors or watching YouTube videos. They didn't seem to occur when my PC was idle though. After doing the above 2 things, I haven't got a BSoD in months My specs: CPU: Intel Core i7 960 @ 3.2 GHz OS: Win 7 Ultimate x64 GPU: Gigabyte Radeon R9 290x GPU Driver: version 14.301.1001.0 PSU: 950 watts. RAM: 12GB Browser: Internet Explorer 11 and Firefox. I hope this helps.
