7900 XT keeps going to black screen, have to restart PC to get video back

Motherboard: MSI B450 Tomahawk

BIOS Version: 1.80 - AMD AGESA Combo-AMD4

This happens seemingly at random, but more commonly while in-game. The screen goes black like the PC is going to sleep and I'm not able to get the video back by pretty much any means besides resetting the PC. Doing so tends to cause the drivers to return to the default generic ones, and trying to launch Adrenalin again gives me a link to this:

I then have to reinstall Adrenalin again, and reinstall as Factory Default

What I've Tried:

When I first installed the new card, I used DDU to remove the old drivers and then downloaded the latest version of Adrenalin and installed from there. I've also set Device Installation settings to "off" and tried using the "Show or Hide Updates" troubleshooter from Microsoft to prevent any replacement of drivers, but the problem still persists. Then I tried to set the group policy for keeping the drivers from updating automatically, but that also did not work.
