hello, i have this annoying problem that came up with lastest gpu amd drivers update. My pc keep crashing every 5 minutes due to default radeon wattman settings have been restored due to unexpected system failure. I have a really important tournament this week, how can i fix it? I have r9 390, and 19.5.2 driver. I have never overclocked any of my pc parts.
You may need to do the whole DDU thing and uninstall 19.5.2.
Let windows update choose your driver ( should be 19.5.1 ) but I don't know.
If you've got a tournament just go with whatever driver is trouble free for now.
Otherwise you might need to repaste your GPU- since I don't how used or old it is, then this is just a hasty recommendation based on a probability that it may be overheating.
I made the whole DDU thing, i let the windows install my drivers. I cleaned my GPU and repasted it, i turned on my pc - after 10 minutes of playing it crashed. Any other ideas?
Yes, the default settings get reapplied whenever the driver crashes of detects a crash of the driver.
Are you running some custom settings in wattman or is the it crashing under default circumstances?
Well, i dont run any custom settings in wattman - it doesn't crash when im using my browser or watch any films on netflix etc. It only happens when im playing games (240fps, 240hz) I made a OCCT GPU test - on default settings it was crashing every single time i turned it on so i lowered GPU frequency and the test in OCCT was done succesfully. But i'm not happy with that results, i bought it for 1500mhz not for 1200mhz.
I have the same problem with a Gigabyte Radeon RX 470. I see the message "Default Radeon WattMan settings have been restored due to unexpected system failure" when the computer restarts. I did a clean install of Windows 10 Home then updated to 1903, installed Win10-64Bit-Radeon-Software-Adrenalin-2019-Edition-19.5.2-May22, and did not change one AMD graphics setting. None of that worked.
I did a clean install of the AMD 19.7.2 software last week and the problem seems to have gone away.
