Display turning off and on over and over; AMD crashing/driver timeout


For several months now, I have had constant problems with my PC: I have two displays plugged into my graphics card (one gaming display (DP), one graphics tablet (HDMI)), and no matter if I turn on a video, a game or do nothing at all my display connected to the DP port goes in and out of sleep mode saying there's no DP signal despite the cable being plucked in properly. Usually, it doesn't take long for an AMD crash detector window to pop up and it's either a system outage/crash or a driver timeout. Most days, it happens more than once. After that, my display sometimes stays on standby or magically gets a signal again, and everything works as it should. 

I have tried everything under the sun: I have reset my entire PC and started anew; I have uninstalled and reinstalled all GPU, display, and chipset drivers; I have updated my BIOS; I tried it all it feels like. 

It's bothering me a ton, and I hope someone can help me fix this.
