I'm back with an update. For a while, the driver was working fine except that the lower half of my screen sometimes flashed once when, for example, pressing play for a 720p Youtube video in Google Chrome or when beginning scrolling on a specific webpage. At any instance, the flash occurred once then stopped although it did occur off and on. The flash hasn't actually affected anything to my knowledge. I was able to watch 720p anime and movies without any issues. However, there was one movie that I watched which I experienced an excessive amount of frame drops despite the fact that the movie is five years old. I'm not sure what the cause of that is.
Anyway, I just recently started experiencing driver crashes again, so I have now installed the beta driver to see if that fixes the crashes and maybe even the flashes.
