So far I've been playing BF4 for last 4-5 hours with no BSOD, only around 10-15 game crashes but I believe it's because game is just terribly bugged and not optimised. I'm not yet sure BSODs stopped because of things you suggested, I used to have no BSODS for even 2-3 days.

I'm going to stick with these drivers for a while, unless I'll get BSOD. I'd be suprised if this is matter of this driver - I had those BSODS before I updated to 13.11.

I'm going to play WoW this evening (that caused most of crashes) and will update if any BSOD happens.
Thanks for posting back your results:)
About the game crashes, do you have all updates installed? If so, can your GPU handle the settings you are using?

Do note that the 13.11 GPU driver is NOT compatible with your GPU and should be avoided.

If that is your only suggestion, make it clear that the OP cannot update the display driver. Updating is not technically possible with a previous version, as the installed Driver is AMD Catalyst 13.11 BETA 9.2 ( of November 7) which is a later version than the suggested (and required) version.

Though Nommy suggested almost the same thing just above.

Dont mind my friend, but you are a good debugger. Please concentrate on the main part of the job. You are supposed to suggest the OP some good thing.
I, for one, am grateful that Harry includes all the information in his posts, as it gives me a lot of insights on how he (and how to) debug a 0xC000005.
It might be an uninteresting read for the average OP or for people that aren't interested, but for folks like me it's a goldmine:)
Do note that I tend to do the same and post as much debugging info in my posts. Both to inform the OP of the inner workings of the BSoD he experienced and for anyone else interested who might stumble across it:)

Game crashed and is still crashing on almost every setting, from low to ultra, with different settings tested, aswell as windowed mode, some config files from reddit and resolution changes.

And considering updates (I understand you mean game updates):

Both WoW and BF4 are automatically updated, but I also updated net framework and Punkbuster for BF4 manually.

Hello spl313,

Hmm weird, I'd say that a 60 bucks game should work properly..
If your BSoDs are resolved and no longer happening, you might want to consider creating a thread in our gaming subforum to see if any of our specialized guru's knows how to deal with them.

Good luck and keep us posted,

I tried a lot of things with BF4 with no results, my WoW crashes a lot too; not really bothering with that anymore, tried so many things...

As for BSODS, I'm still waiting, will marked as fixed if nothing happens next couple of days.
