Ok this problem is seriously annoying me to death. I can play for about 5 mins and then my game freezes for about 5 seconds. My entire screen goes black, then it comes back on and a little message balloon in the corner says my video drivers have crashed and have successfully recovered. I have tried multiple things:
-upgrading to java 7
-downgrading to java 6.30
-downloading a new minecraft exe
-downgrading my minecraft version from 1.1 to 1.0
-downgrading minecraft from 1.1 to 1.8.1
-updating to the latest amd drivers
-downgrading to older amd drivers
-using modded amd drivers
-running minecraft in compatibilty mode for XPsp2, XPsp3, vista, vista sp1, vista sp2, and windows 7. all produce the same crash result, except for the vista ones. Those dont even let me run minecraft at all, they just produce an error report from java.
My video card is an ATI Radeon HD 5770, and minecraft is the only game that has this problem.
I would serisouly love to get minecraft running again, and start making videos of it again. If you can think of any other solution i would greatly appreciate it.
