AMD Driver or Card crashes when Tabbing out of fullscreen Game


I'm experiencing some problems/crashes when I'm playing a game in fullscreen and then Tabbing out to click on something on my second screen. It happens mainly when I try to click on the second screen but it can also happen when I tab out and start using whatever is open behind my game on my main screen.

It happened in Stardew Valley as well as in Counterstrike Global Offensive. And Stardew Valley isn't exactly a game that demands a lot of performance.

When It happens both Screens turn Black and it seems like the Graphic card or the driver "reboot" after that most of the times the Game I was playing crashed or I have to force close it because it won't open again. Sometimes the screens are only Black for 1 second sometimes 10.


Current Driver Version:

Adrenalin 23.7.1 (Newest Version at the time of writing this)


Computer Specs:

Motherboard: Gigabyte B650 Gaming X AX

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D

GPU: Powercolor Red Devil AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX

Ram: Corsair Vengeance RGB (2x16GB at 6000MHz)


As far as I'm aware I haven't overclocked anything except for the Ram which was on 4000MHz default setting and I changed it to another predefined setting in the BIOS so it runs on the 6000MHz that are promised on the product.


Thanks for anybody taking some time and replying to this
