Journeyman III

RX580 GPU Driver disappears constantly.

Hello, this started a couple weeks ago 2-3 from now, I've used my RX580 and my entire rig for almost a year and a half now. 

My Specs:

RX580 Sapphire (70 degrees under load stock fans)

G.Skill Aegis 16gb (2x8).

Ryzen 5 3600 (average 60 degrees under load Cooler Master Lite AIO)

Kingston SSD 126gb

WDC 1TB Drive

B450 DS3H

Thermaltake RGB PSU 600W (bad choice, I know, gettin a new one soon)

The issue:

So, basicly I can play games, watch YT, render a video, do anything I want, suddenly my screen will go black as if a driver has corrupted, I've tried restartin the driver using win+shift+ctrl+b, and it doesnt do anything, also when I turn on my pc, on the first boot it just wont turn on, I have to manually shut it down and restart it for it to boot.


I've tried:

Reinstalling windows.

DDU the driver.

Reinstalling the entire AMD package.

Made sure all my cables are fine

Made sure all my temps are fine.

It’s your PSU. It cannot take the load and so your PC black screens, restarts after load, and so on. The RX580 is not that power intensive as well, so I think your PSU is dying

Started having this issue recently as well, if you look around the forums there's a lot of ppl experiencing similiar issues with black screens and other similiar stuff.. there's some similiar known issues in latest release notes as well:

  • AMD is investigating a black screen issue that may be experienced while playing Myst™ or Kingshunt™ on some Radeon™ RX 6800 XT graphics products. A temporary workaround is to disable Performance Metrics Overlay or Radeon™ Image Sharpening in Radeon Software.
  • 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.
  • Playing Horizon Zero Dawn™ for an extended period may lead to a driver timeout or game crash on some AMD Graphics products such as Radeon™ RX 6700 XT.
  • Enhanced Sync may cause a black screen to occur when enabled on some games and system configurations. Any users who may be experiencing issues with Enhanced Sync enabled should disable it as a temporary workaround.

What I did couple days ago is I disabled basically every AMD feature, including: instant replay, image sharpening, freesync, etc etc. And I believe I haven't gotten any crashes since, so maybe it¨'s worth to go through every amd option as well and see if there¨'s something possible causing it. Anyway lets hope our hardware isn't dying and they're gonna patch these issues soon!


@pr0metheus your advice here is pretty good but the only problem is that the advice is for 6000 series GPUs, not the 500 series, which is 2 generations ago. It might not be applicable here


Yeah, but just try it, I have RX580 too. Maybe they don't know it's affecting other gpus as well or smth.. *shrug*
