Default ATI Catalyst 10.11 Problem (Black/Green Screen)

Hi there, i'm not sure if i'm posting in the right section. Sorry if so.

Anyways, I've been having few issues with the new ATI 10.11 Driver

Happened few days ago when i'm not able to bootup my computer, found out it was a video card driver problem.

So i decided to upgrade to 10.11 from 10.10e (i think, not sure)

I did the proper way of uninstalling, installing new driver

It was fine and all till i watch videos. Everytime i full screen it, I get Black/Green on both of my monitor for about 5-10 seconds every 10-15minutes

I have a crossfire powercolor 5850, one just the normal 5850 and the other one is the pcs+ (downclock'd to match the other card's clock)

Anyone else experiencing this problem?
Any suggestion to resolve this issue?

Thank You.

I would say the only way to avoiding problems like these, would be switching to the 10.5 drivers. They have been the only non-shitty ATI drivers, especially for crossfire setup. I have a 5970, and the 10.5's are the only ones where I don't face any problems.

Disabling Crossfire or disabling one monitor will probably fix the issue. Multiple monitors and Crossfire have always been a PITA.
All's well that's Haswell

yah, that could be my problem. I have dual 5850's and when I try to use 10.11, I get constant screen flickering. 10.10e is much better. I have very few problems with it.
