I'm ready to tear my hair out and honestly crying, I just want my computer to work.

I've had issues in the past with the computer turning off and a buzzing noise keeps going and I think these two are related.

I recently upgraded to windows 10 and it worked fine for two days, then recently I've had "Display driver has stopped working and has successfully recovered" errors and changed TDR to no prevail.

I recently reseated my graphics card just in case to no prevail and the wires are fine.

Drivers updated.

Tested ram with Memtestx86 about 3 weeks ago and everything was fine.

Bios not updated but I'm honestly doubting that.

I have ran crystaldisk to check hard drive.

Ive tested GPU with valley for an HOUR and 15 minutes and nothing went wrong

I tested CPU with Prime95 for an hour and nothing went wrong

I've tried reinstalling OS.

I HIGHLY doubt it's a software issue.

Please offer help, I'm a broken person at this point.

It has ONLY crashed once since windows 10 install BUT it crashed like this CONSTANTLY on windows 7 and i'm worried about it happening again.

AMD FX-8350 Black edition.
8GB Of DDR3 ram.
R9 280X Double Dissapation Video card
MSI 970 Gaming AM3+ Mobo.
500GB Hitachi hard drive.
Windows 10 Pro N.

Update: Reverted the problem back to "display driver has crashed and recovered"
Still a problem for me.
Still wondering if its a hardware issue. 
(SIDENOTE it ONLY seems to be with Bnet client)

What is your PSU?
Also post a dxdiag/speccy log (gives us all your system info).
