Window 10 20H1(2004) + AMD 20.5.1 software + GPU latest bios completely fix black screen/blue screen/screen freeze issue.

I've been suffering with black screen/screen freeze/blue screen TDR FAILURE for more than 4-5 months and finally AMD can made it fix. Now more than 5 days none of these issues happen to me. With 5-6 FPS increase in every game.

Thanks AMD 

GPU : ASUS ROG 5600XT

I have the same issue as you since I bought it too. Very annoy with unpredictable black screen/screen freeze while playing games/video watching. But with that 3 things I've mentioned above. Seems like all problems are gone.

20.4.2. is rather stable. But only when you install it like this (Tested on Dual Screen config):

The right steps:

  1. Boot into windows
  2. Download 20.4.2 at AMD if not already having it
  3. Start the installer
  4. Select "Advanced installer options" and select "Factory Reset"
  5. Select "Remove game profiles" (the second option) - IMPORTANT
  6. Reboot when installer says
  7. Log in into Windows
  8. Let installer continue
  9. When installer asks to continue or reboot, select Reboot now - IMPORTANT

The steps what do not work:

  1. Boot into windows
  2. Download 20.4.2 at AMD if not already having it
  3. Run DDU and reboot - Somehow this does not do the magic
  4. Start the installer
  5. Reboot when installer says
  6. Log in into Windows

The so-called DDU way is not working, the only thing what works is the factory default, with game profiles removed.

Re: Window 10 20H1(2004) + AMD 20.5.1 software + GPU latest bios completely fix black screen/blue screen/screen freeze issue.

Today I just also upgraded to Windows 10 (2004) & Radeon 20.4.2.

My problem with the black screen randomly and pc got freeze has gone temporarily until now.

I don't know how long this good news can last. But it's a hopeful sign.
Thank you so much, Microsoft!

Can you update to 20.5.1? I think it will be more stable.

It's not fixed completely for Vega (Radeon VII). For Windows 10 (2004) and radeon 20.5.1 instead of blackscreen I'm seeing game crashes and multiple notifications "application has been blocked from accessing graphics hardware"
