6700xt Black Screen Issues

I have a 6700xt, I have had the same exact issue for months now, despite always updating my driver's . 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 if that matters at all. Using driver version 22.11.2

Here are instructions, how to disable Windows updates

But after disabling updates, you need to DDU driver and reinstall driver. The difference is, this time (after disabling updates), Windows won't run over you driver installation.
