I have been having a reoccurring issue.   http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/580298/computer-locks-up/?view=getnewpost  here is the issue if it makes a difference.  But as i have been trying to trouble shoot it i noticed that device manager shows my video card as radeon r9 200 (which is what is suppose to be in there) series but HWinfo shows it as radeon hd 8800 series.  Could this be causing problems?  Or why does it show different.
