Windows 7: New card, screen goes all colored have to reboot,only with videos

New card, screen goes all colored have to reboot,only with videos

Hi all,

I had posted in another thread about having BSoD with my new card and its since been fixed. One problem that has not, the screen going on the fritz only when playing a video. I have not tried playing a video on VLC or WMP to test this but it seems almost every time a video pops up on a website, or if I go to youtube, my screen goes crazy.

Per the other thread, I swept my old drivers and re-installed the newest (which was 12.9 beta) and everything is ok, cept these videos. To fix it, I have once or twice gotten lucky and been able to hit escape and it goes back to normal. Otherwise, I have to hit the power button and make it go into sleep/lock mode. I have a second monitor hooked up and it doesn't do what monitor one does, which is very odd.

Anyway, here is a screen shot of what it looks like. I thank you in advance for helping me!

Card is XFX Radeon R7770 Ultra overclocked black edition (factory overclocked)

P.S. Tried to use the uploader for pic and it wasn't working for me at all. Tried to use Imgur also, said it was down for maint. So, heres the pic.
