AMD 21.2.1 flickering/black screen every few minutes

Hi,

Radeon RX 580 Series with 21.2.1 version. I have flickering almost every minute. Screen goes black, comes back again in about 2 seconds with a prompt to send a bug report (I did). I have two screens by the way. Read in older driver versions that this was a problem. It was supposed to be fixed with this driver I think?

hi, last drivers for rx 580 are 21.2.3

i think you problem is about driver crashing , but that maybe related to temps or so too , check if something is weird with temps

what are your screens ? high refresh rates ?

We are having the same problem most likely in our Dell G5. The screen constantly flickers now.

Re: AMD 21.2.1 flickering/black screen every few minutes

Getting the same problem with the latest drivers. Although, i don't have any black screens, but i do get constant flickering when scrolling, watching videos or playing games. 

I only noticed it a couple of days ago. It was all of a sudden. 

Prior to that, everything was fine.

Re: AMD 21.2.1 flickering/black screen every few minutes

i had some screen flickering with an old 570, that suddenly appeared while browsing (but not in games for example) , i read somewhere in a forum to re-init wattman with the reinitialization button in wattman "settings" menu (in the upper right corner, the arrow in circle) and let default setting to test if it helps (flickering directly disappeared by me , but i don't know if it is for the same reasons)

Re: AMD 21.2.1 flickering/black screen every few minutes

I'll try and better describe it. Its not the whole screen flickering, but when you scroll, you'll notice the text starts flashing. In gamess, you'll notice weird wavy lines start to appear when you move and flickering in the distance. In videos, when things are moving, you'll notice the same wavy lines appear and things such as lights start flickering when movement is happening. 

In minecraft for example, you'll notice weird white dotted lines in between blocks and wavy lines whilst moving. 

Its the strangest thing. Like I say, a few days ago, it was all fine. No issues whatsoever, then all of a sudden, the flickering stuff started happening. 

I did a reset on my computer today to see if there was a problem. That checked out. I checked cables for my monitor, they were fine. 

From what I can tell, it seems to be a problem with the display drivers. 


Edit:

I also noticed something really strange as well. I loaded up the bedrock edition of minecraft. Its usually a good one to test for any graphical issues. And it instantly told me my graphics drivers were out of date and that there was an update available. Its never done that before in the past. So, i double checked and there is nothing to update. Everything was up to date according to the AMD software.

Also, the software isn't saving settings. You close it, reopen it and its set the settings you set back to what they were before.

hi all!

installing the 21.2.3 driver seems to have fixed my problem.
