My gpu is the amd radeon hd 7850 by gigabyte radeon. It is 2gb GDDR5. It is about 5 months old. Model number GV-R785OC-2GD. It is pci express 3.0, is 256 bit, and supports direct x 11.
Very good information, Nice GPU

Enter into the priority settings of the games those are problematic. Reduce the priority, textures etc to low or medium .... see if it can minimize this issue.

i don't really understand what you mean by priority settings, do you mean the priority settings of the program when you go on windows task manager?

No, the settings of the particular game .... all the priorities are there ... you need to minimize those.

okay, so i reduced the graphics settings on modern warfare 2 and my PC still crashed, but it lasted longer than before. Also this is the first time this happened, but windows said it was a blue screen, even though i didn't see a blue screen. I'll attach my dump files just in case. Hopefully, we're getting close to the solution to the problem
Edit: also sometimes my ati driver just stops working, it says it in a little bubble on my task bar.

As it is showing a stop 0x117 now, it is a graphics related error, and for it, it is to follow STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting

Something like this?

If after installing the latest driver it occurs still, plan to RMA / replace the GPU. In more than 90% of cases, it is hardware error.

yeah, that's what's happening to my pc. I'll try downloading the amd beta driver, and if that doesn't work i guess i'll have to rma, i hope it's covered by warranty

Is this stop 0x117 causing my pc to go black when playing games as well?
Edit: is there a way to make sure it's my gpu first?

Yes there is a way ... either you use the onboard graphics, or replace the graphics card with another one. If the situation is the same, it is not the GPU but anything else. But if the situation is better, it the the GPU.

In my best assumption, it is the GPU that is causing the problem in your case.

if my gpu passes furmark after an hour, does this mean it's not the gpu? cause it's passed furmark 2 times before, i did the tests a few months ago. Btw Merry Christmas, Arc!

The error that you confirmed is too random to be caught by a furmark test. So I am not sure that it will be caught by the furmark test.
