    I have tried using over 3 different AMD drivers (15.6, 15.7.1, 15.8) and all of them give me errors such as "Display Driver Stopped Reponding and Recovered" and also BSOD with the error "VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (atikmpag.sys)". I would get these errors doing almost anything on my PC such as browsing or opening files however I rarely got them whilst playing games.

    I found out today that if I uninstall my AMD driver it will use the "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter" and this basic driver allows me to browse the internet and other things perfectly fine without a single error. Using this would be fine however it means that I get insanely low FPS in games (Under 10FPS) in games that I would usually get 60-100+ FPS. So I really want to find a fix for this issue.

    My graphics card is an Sapphire R9 280x by the way

    Any help would be welcome.

    This is probably the wrong site to ask.

    If you follow this through video_tdr_failure atikmpag.sys (Asus R9 270x) [Solved] - Asus - Graphics Cards

    Suggests upgrade your motherboard BIOS. And check you are using the latest driver from AMD not the one through Windows Update.

    The Microsoft Basic driver is not what you want to use as it doesn't use any of your cards features.
