Radeon HD 7770 Graphics Card Gigabyte Sniper G1 A88X Motherboard G Skill 2 x 4GB RAM AMD A10 6800K 4.1 GHz Akasa CPU Fan 500W Coolermaster Power Supply

I have recently built a computer using the specs. listed above. I have encountered an issue that has occurred several times during fairly basic 3D gameplay, whereby the screen will either return to the desktop, with an error message: 'AMD Driver has stopped working and has recovered', or will turn green/black, requiring a reboot.

There is no overheating issue (5 operational fans), the motherboard and graphics drivers are all up to date, and the computer is not overclocked.

Could this be due to a faulty card, or could there be another underlying issue? Any suggestions welcome.

I have googled your problem and it seems fairly common,the answer seems to be corrupt drivers so uninstall the graphics driver and reinstall the latest driver for your card,good luck
