My Issues.


I cannot restart my computer. It resets the resolution on my main monitor (LG 34) to 1280x1024, and im not able to change it back. I tried uninstalling with DDU and such. And then I have to reinstall it. Doesn’t work either.

Some games just crash, blackscreen, like rainbow six siege.

Im stuttering in other games, like Minecraft, and call of duty world war II. When I install some of the newest drivers 19.10.2 then it again sets the resolution to the wrong, which I am not able to change. Pretty annoying. Cant restart my pc, else I have to reinstall it.

Some applications just freeze, chrome, steam, ingame overlays in games. Even if my PC is idle. My GPU usage was 100% at somepoint while being idle, a driver restart fixed that.

Freesync makes my screen darker at some places, and in general, it just seems like that freesync is causing a lot of issues.

I’m having a lot of issues with my powercolor 5700 XT, which is REALLY annoying. I’ve always supported AMD, but this is really bad.


The worst thing is just that I cannot restart my pc without the drivers doing something that makes the resolution change. And that I have to reinstall the driver EVERY time.

I hope this is enough information. Thanks.
