6700xt Black Screen Issues

I have a 6700xt that has been giving me nothing but problems since I have bought it a month ago. I returned it and exchanged one at bestbuy for a new one thinking I just got a faulty one. Nope, this one is having the same exact issues. Whenever I am gaming it could take minutes or even hours but it never fails that my screen will go black. I can still hear sound for a few more seconds until everything freezes. Eventually my screen will come back on and I will get two error messages that state default radeon wattman settings have been restored and we detected a driver timeout has occured on your system. I have done everything I can possibly think of to fix this issue. Brand new monitor, cables, ram, power supply, SSD, I have uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers and made sure they were always up to date, I even did a clean install of windows and wiped everything. Nope still having the same issues. I'm getting really fed up with it. Does anyone know of any fix? I play world of warcraft, minecraft, and league of legends if that matters at all. Using driver version 22.8.2

myself and others have the same.

disabling hardware acceleration every where will help it. give this thread a read


So I am still experiencing the same issue. I have hardware acceleration disabled everywhere, granted it's happening a bit less but it almost always happens when I alt tab to a game.
