When I'm trying to view a youtube video with Chrome, I get the error message:"Display driver AMD driver has stopped responding and has succesfully recovered." I have seen this error a few times before, but since I upgraded to Windows 8.1 (fresh install) I get it all the time. If I use Internet Explorer then youtube works just fine. Also I can play graphically demanding games like Starcraft II and Watch_Dogs without any problems.
I also got the message immediatly after starting up Windows. After a few times glcnd.exe is denied access to the graphics driver. This apparently is the process belonging to the Reader App, which I don't need anyway and uninstalled. This solved this part of my problem.
I have already tried several fixes:
Disableing the Chrome Flash plugin (pepflashplayer.dll) and instead using my system's flash player (NPSWF32_14_0_0_145.dll)
Reïnstalling the ATI drivers and trying the Beta version.
Setting the Windows power options to High Performance instead of balanced.
I also set the TDRdelay in the registry to 8. After this, instead of getting the error message above about 10 times in a row, I get it only once and after that chrome.exe is blocked from accessing my graphics hardware. I can view youtube video's, but without proper hardware accelleration. When viewing 1080p video's on full screen it results in bad framerates. This is not what I want so still the problem is not fixed.
