Had a Power Outage. Replaced Motherboard. Having Video Card Issues.

I have AMD Radeon R9 200 Series. Windows 10.   Was working great.  No issues.

I had a power outage.  After said power outage was over, I tried to turn on my computer.  My computer would not turn on. Would not even light up except for a light on my mouse.

I took my computer in to get fixed, and ended up with  a new Mother Board and upgraded a few things.  I took it home, and my graphics card keeps crashing.  I would get some sort of error and my graphics card would crash, I have a Radeon Settings app and it would go blank or invisible.  At times the monitor would turn off like it like it was not receiving anything, yet, the computer would still be running.  If I was playing a game I could still hear the game music on the speakers.

I updated all the drivers.  Still have issues.  I may start watching youtube videos, and they become blurry, and this leads to a crash.

I reinstalled windows.  Still having similar issues.   What is going on?

I ended up with a MSI z170A PC Mate Mother Board.

Took computer into get fixed.  Tech checked it.  Not the power supply.  Said the motherboard was bad.  Replaced motherboard. 

Computer now works.  I have all the latest drivers.  I may start watching youtube videos and after some time the AMD fails and recovers.  I don't get good video after that.  Computer may crash. 

Did something happen to my graphics card as well?

Is possible. You also need to invest in a UPS to protect against future damage.

Which card do you have? Which power supply?
