Ever since I installed Windows -8 Pro ( 64 bit ) on my Multi Monitor system, all my screens go black with following error message.

" AMD Drivers stopped Responding & has Recovered "

It happens so many times an hour that I had to stop using Windows -8 completely. Even the worst thing is that if I have more than one hard drive & driver crashes, then on next reboot my system automatically starts disk checking which takes hours for a 3.0 GB slave HDD. I never had this problem with Windows -7 using the same system.

My system configuration is as follows.

Dell T-7500 Workstation.

Intel Xeon E5645 2.4 GHz 12 GB DDR3 RAM AMD Fire Pro 2460 Video Cards ( 3 of them. Each supports 4 Monitors ) 12 Dell 24 inch ( 1920x1200) Monitors

I downloaded AMD Drivers for workstation & FirePro 2460 Video card from following AMD Links.

AMD has not updated Drivers since December 2012.

I will appreciate any & all help.

Does event viewer shed any additional light, or programs like WhosCrashed? AMD Drivers is, IMO, very broad, it would be nice to pin point. For example, if could be the cool n quiet (which has caused me issues in the past). – Dave Mar 15 '13 at 10:22
Have you tried the generic display drivers? – Ramhound Mar 15 '13 at 10:53
