RX 6600 - Windows disabling device while playing certain heavy games

Hey everyone,

I'm encountering a persistent issue with my RX 6600 graphics card. Whenever I attempt to play certain demanding games like Black Desert, Final Fantasy VII Remake, or Ghostwire (i don't know if it has to do with the game being demanding because it often my screen goes black right in the menu), my monitor goes black within 1 to 2 minutes, and upon restarting my PC, all drivers for the GPU are disabled. I've tried a variety of troubleshooting steps including reinstalling different drivers, testing power consumption to rule out issues with the power supply (which seemed fine after 20 minutes of testing), resetting the BIOS, and even reinstalling the problematic games. I've also attempted to install older drivers, but nothing seems to resolve the issue.

Essentially, the problem persists: upon launching these games, my monitor loses signal, requiring a manual reboot. Upon restarting, all GPU drivers are disabled, and I have to manually re-enable the graphics card through the Windows Device Manager. This cycle repeats every time I attempt to play one of these demanding titles.

Has anyone else encountered a similar issue with the RX 6600? I'd greatly appreciate any insights, suggestions, or potential solutions.

Thanks for your help
