During normal use of Java applications (including the Java configuration application accessed via Control Panel), my screen goes black and after a few seconds I get the error "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered." Even when it doesn't totally crash my display drivers, large parts of the UI are often black and it's almost completely unusable. I have tried reinstalling the latest version of my display drivers and reinstalling Java (currently just the 32-bit version since it's a 32-bit application I want to run). Has anyone seen this or have an idea of what might be happening? Here are the relevant specs:
- Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
- Radeon HD 5770 - Driver version 8.841.0.0
- Java Version 6 Update 25 (build 1.6.0_25-b06)
I will edit as I try more things. Suggestions of possible problems are welcome.
I tried removing the 32-bit version of Java and installing the 64-bit version (even though they should exist fine side-by-side, I wanted as few variables as possible). When editing the settings in the Java Control Panel, the drivers no longer stop responding when I click on "View..." under Temporary Internet Files, but there's definitely still something wrong, as shown by this screenshot:
Everything appears to work fine with nothing but driver version 8.782.0.0 installed (in other words, no Catalyst Control Center or OpenCL drivers and an older version of the drivers). I'm going to try installing the latest driver version without the additional software and see if that works as well.
Everything seems to be working fine with the latest display driver only installed. I am now going to attempt to narrow down exactly what else in the Catalyst Control Center install would be causing the problem. My current suspect is the OpenCL drivers or APP SDK or something along those lines.
