Artifacts and black screen after resuming from Sleep Mode. (16.12.1)

Question asked by lightningterror on Dec 8, 2016



With the latest driver update when I resume the system from sleep mode I get artifacts for several seconds ( maybe 10 seconds ) and after that the screen goes black and the system is not responding. No errors are shown in event log.

The only workaround for this is restarting the system.


Tried reinstalling the drivers a couple of times and it didn't work ( ddu included ) sfc scan and all other options don't seem to fix the issue.

This isn't present on previous driver releases.


Edit: I found the issue. It seems to happen when msi Afterburner is running as well when resuming from sleep.

os: windows 7 64bit sp1 with latest updates
