At random times my screen turns black and an irrecoverable crash would occur. The only way to deal with is is to restart the pc.
This happens with all of the recent new drivers, the only exception seems to be the 15.11 beta drivers for me.
15.11 seems to be the most stable and doesn't crash my pc, not even once.
I always use DDU in safe mode to uninstall drivers and my IGPU is automatically disabled when there's a physical card in my machine.
This issue has been brought up before but no one had an answer to it.

Are there any other drivers that are known to be stable besides 15.11 beta? Preferably crimson drivers.
Yep. Just rage quit witcher 3 because for the third time within 20 minutes I get a black screen then booted to desktop with a Radeon has quit working error. GPU stuck at full clock and load 100%. Requires PC restart. Damn frustrating I tell you that. RX480.
From first version of Crimson to 16.7.2 should be stable , while I am still using 7850(it died though last month).
If you want to try, try 16.7.2.
I have the same problem it happens while playing games, but also watching videos online (YouTube, Netflix and Twitch),
it stays off for a few seconds before coming back, and then it usually does a couple of times more a short while after, closing the game or browser seems to make the problem go away.
Crimson version 16.6 running on Windows 10
R9 290 4 GB
The usual remedy is to disable hardware acceleration in the browser, and/or, in the case of some videos, right click on the video and disable hardware acceleration.
The 16.7.2 still crashes my system but not as often as the newer drivers did. That said, i'm still sticking to the 15.11 beta until they come up with more stable drivers.
From what i've heard, it's the fluctuating memory clocks that cause the crashing.
i'm not gonna try and "fix" it my self, because i really don't know any better.
Still if anyone's interested, read R9 380 black screen crash FIXED at last by fixing/locking the gpu clock
