Support for acceleration on graphic card not work on AMD RADEON 7800 with driver latest then April 2014.
Last good driver is ”14.4” from April 2014.
Aktuall driver is 15.2.

If I select "Use graphic processor" with driver 15.2, LTRM stop work. Also when I try deselect "Use graphic processor", LTRM stop work. I must restart Windows to Safe mode and deselect "Use graphic processor" in Safe mode.

There is a new beta AMD driver released: 15.8 Beta. See http://support.amd.com/en-us/download..

Can you please try it and report if it fixes the problem with hanging or crashes issues when the GPU acceleration is turned on? 

(Remember to enable the GPU acceleration in the Lightroom user prefs, first.) 

Listed in the AMD Beta driver release notes: 

Resolved Issues: 
[424009] Adobe® Lightroom may crash if GPU rendering is enabled
