I have an extremely frustrating issue where my screen will go black while playing games and often causes me to have to hard restart using the reset button on my PC. This is an extremely frustrating experience, as I upgraded from the NVIDIA 1060 to this AMD card and now am having an extremely frustrating experience. I have tried reinstalling the drivers and even gone to the lengths of actually factory resetting my PC and freshly install windows, yet it is still occuring! My game will freeze for some seconds and then either the game will minimise and crash or my screens will go black and either come back after a few seconds or not at all forcing me to hard reset. I occasionally hear a random beeping sound (which sounds like 3 or 4 beeps going up in tone) also and when that happens for like a second, the game also freezes at the same time. This is very frustrating and I would really like a fix as this is a brand new card
