Hello! I've been experiencing some issues with my software for the past few weeks now and it's become very frustrating. I'm starting online classes next week and I don't want to have my pc crash during a lesson. The graphics card I have is the Radeon RX 580 Series, I also have a Wacom Cintiq that I use for art and a second monitor. Since getting it the crashes have been more frequent so I'm wondering if it has something to do with that?
Basically what happens is when I open chrome (especially when I start any type of video) my screen goes black for a few seconds (5-20 seconds) and then it starts back up. During this period all audio goes out. And occasionally my monitors don't turn back on and I have to do it manually. When the screens turn back on I get a popup that says: "We detected a driver timeout has occurred on your system" and then prompts me to do a bug report. I haven't found a fix for this as of yet and it's really getting on my nerves lol
Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated! I'm still learning to be tech-savvy so I'm sorry if it's a very simple fix that I missed.
Driver timeouts may be experienced while playing a game & streaming a video simultaneously on some AMD Graphics products such as Radeon™ RX 500 Series Graphics.
This is from AMD driver release notes, it has been like this for 2-3 drivers now..
Lucky it hasn't happened to me yet..
