Windows 7: BSOD in Extended Desktop mode on 2 Monitors - graphics card maybe?

BSOD in Extended Desktop mode on 2 Monitors - graphics card maybe?

Please Help! When I am in extended desktop mode (2 BenQ monitors; 1 x DVI and 1 x HDMI) I will get the BSOD each and every time after approx 15 mins of computer use. Duplicate display is fine as is solo display on each of the monitors.

Graphics Card is HD7850 (Asus) 2GB.

AMD (and Asus) have both recommended uninstall driver utility from website, followed by reinstall of drivers - all been done and no help. Last course of action they have recommended is to send in the card so they can investigate card - all up approx 2-3 week wait time (last resort I want due to tight work schedule).

Card is fine I have tested on another computer. I have also done a complete reinstall of windows 7. Still no help.

Has anyone else had this problem with this graphics card? OR does anyone have any potential solutions? I WAS excited about this new computer until I added my second screen! (which I need for work). Any input would be very much appreciated! Thanks very much.

New computer build Specs as follows:

ASUS Sabretooth X79 Motherboard (2011 chipset)
Intel core i7 3820 CPU
ASUS Radeon HD7850 - 2GB Graphics Card
Kingston memory 4 x 4GB Ram
Intel 180GB SSD plus WD 2TB HDD
