Driver Crashes

My driver keeps turning off my second monitor and crashing randomly or while playing games which causes it to crash even faster than usual. Games I play that almost always crash my driver within 30 - 40mins: League Of Legends, Valorant, Overwatch 2.

Steps I took to try and fix this issue:

- Updated the driver to the newest version

- Upgraded from Windows 10 to Windows 11

- Uninstalled the driver using DDU in Safe Mode and installed the newest version again.

The issue still persists and I don't know what else to do. 

My graphics card is RX 560.

I did not have this issue before (I have been using two monitors and the same specs for a year) and it only started about a week ago. The only thing that's changed is that I swapped my Hard Disk to a bigger one. My SSD where I have my Windows and all the drivers stayed the same.

If anyone has any recommendation on what else to try I would be really thankful since it's starting to become pretty annoying.

Ive experienced ATLEAST one crash per day after recent driver update. Yesterday was crash free. It can just be luck but what I did was:

turn off MPO
Turn off Image Sharpening
Started using Firefox

What makes the most sense is the Firefox thing. During 9/10 of the crashes Ive had Google Chrome up and running. Never happened when Ive switched browser.
