@techie007 since you suggested the clean install, I'd like you to add it as the answer.

@Synetech did that more than once. Didn't help.

Thanks for the suggestion. However, I tested a clean Win 8 install before seeing your answer. And it seems there was just something wrong in my OS. So I can't see if your suggestion actually works.

@magicandre1981 DISM did not detect anything. Still no issues with that test install of W8. So I'm going to format my main disc, and get a new installation running.

@techie007 Installed W8 on another partition, and catalyst 13.12 installed without issues. Will be running a stress test now, to see if that causes any issues.

@techie007 Installing on another drive is a good idea, thanks for the suggestion. So if it fails there, I can probably conclude it's hardware?

comment Can't install new AMD video driver
@techie007 I've considered a hardware problem, but it seems strange because of how everything > 13.4 fails to install and anything < 13.4 just gives random BSODs. Unfortunately, I don't have another computer I can test the card in; their PSUs don't provide a high enough wattage. I agree that would likely be the easiest way of finding out. But it's not possible at the moment. I have also checked my RAM with memtest86. No problems there.
