XFX Ati Radeon HD 6790 Crashes
I got a XFX ATI Radeon HD 6790 couple of days back and it works fine in playing games like Crysis 2 , BF3, Syndicate etc or any other games i've played but everything got stuck while i'm surfing internet after sometime or playing any kind of videos, mostly in continous playback of videos not more than 1 minutes. A solid bluescreen occurred but still hearing movie audio in background ,its not the BSOD just a bluescreen ,no crashdump nothing, just keyboard gets hanged and bluescreen so i've to restart my pc again and again for this.
It is plugged in correctly check it several times .It has a single 6pin connector which is also plugged in fine. So no issues with the hardware installation.
I've tried to install reinstall its AMD catalyst drivers from amd.com latest is 12.6 series down to 11.5 ! uninstalling it done with Driver Sweeper as i've heard it might solve the problem or even just install AMD Display Driver from those packs and remaining everything unchecked but nothing works for me .. and having same problem. I didn't overclocked it all setting on stock.
The GPU temps are not more than 45C and don't show any increase in temps in HWmonitor right exactly before it happens.
The PSU i'm using is Cooler Master 400W RS-430-PCAR. Also changed it with COOLMAX V-500 500W , but still having same problem.
Would it be a hardware problem in card of any software issue.
Really need help from you guys as I can't return it back :-(

Coolmax PSU's are junk, I'd go back to the Coolermaster, your better off.
Try disabling GPU Hardware acceleration in the browsers, as it seems to be only affecting the browser part of your PC, and not when gaming.i7 940//Corsair H60//EVGA X58 SLI LE//6GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz//2x EVGA GTX 560 Ti FPB SLI//NZXT Hale82 850W//CM 690 II Advanced//Win7 64//WD 74GB V-raptor, 750GB Black, 1.5TB Green
