Recently my AMD Driver started crashing and recovering. It is very annoying. I am running Windows 7 64 bit with an AMD A6-3400M APU. My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L755D. What could be causing this? I am getting an error about the driver once my desktop recovers saying my AMD driver crashed and recovered. Could this be a hardware problem or is it just software related?

EDIT- So far I have run CC Cleaner and as of this first edit it has not happened since, I am hoping it is something simple. Could a registry error have caused this?

Please follow the steps below to enter the Event Viewer program in Vista\Win7. This will give me more information into what is causing your issue. You can get to Event viewer two ways and I will post both for you.


" Go to
" Start
" In the Search box type in Event Viewer in the search box and press Enter
" From this point you can follow from step four from the below method as they will be the same.
Method Two
" Go to Start
" Right click on the Computer Icon and select Manage
" Navigate to the Event Viewer, You will be prompted to accept the action you are going to perform. Click continue
" On the left window pane click on Local and then expand the Windows entry. This will allow you to see every error for the past 24 hours as well as the last 7 days in the right window pane.
" Look for the ones that correspond to the times that your issue occurred.
" If any are found please double click and expand the error. This will open and give you more information on the error.
" Please include that in your next reply.

So far it has not happened since Monday after I used CC Cleaner to fix A LOT of registry errors.


All the manager said was the display driver stopped working and recovered.

So was it possible that it could have been a registry error?

Nothing came up

Can a registry error cause a problems with drivers?

This has not happened again since I ran CC Cleaner. I posted this after it happened before I ran the scan with CC Cleaner and found a lot of errors and problems then had CC Cleaner fix them. This was on Monday I edited in the so far so good part after I ran the scan, when I first posted this I was in a state of almost complete panic.

IT could be a case of conflicting errors or even a software entry that was causing the issue. I myself have never used a registry cleaner simply because it does remove entries you may not be aware of. In your case it looks to have removed the problem entry without any bad results. I would say give it a couple more days and see what happens. If everything is still working correctly with no error messages and\or any other issues then we will consider this issue resolved. Please update me lets say Monday and we will decide then if any other steps are needed or the issue is resolved. Good job on your part. :thumbsup:
