Minecraft Freezes Whole Computer


- Windows 10 Pro

- Radeon RX 470 4G - Driver 18.8.2

- RAM 16GB

- AMD FX  6300 Six-Core Processor


So a while ago this problem occurred that if I start playing Minecraft, after a couple of minutes my whole computer just freezes, no input from mouse/keyboard.. nothing shows on any of my 2 screens except the last frame before it froze, there is no more sound just a weird buzzing sound in headphones.. and it's not very fun.

This only happens while playing Minecraft, I can play Fortnite, CS:GO, League of Legends, and all those games just fine.

I have tried:

- Installing different graphics card drivers *(They're up to date rn V-18.8.2)

- Emailing support, all he said was wait for the next driver update and turn down settings - which I did, nothing changed even after driver update.

- Factory resetting PC, made absolutely no change.

- Reinstalling Java/Installing older version of Java, currently back on latest (Java 8 - 181)

- Reinstalling Minecraft, nothing.

- Turned down every possible setting to lowest and having no mods/texture packs/or any addons installed.

- Uninstalling All Radeon Drivers so I am using the default windows driver, which I figured out can't support Minecraft so that was a fail.

- Giving Minecraft more memory to work with, I concluded memory is not the issue after testing.

Nothing works, I've even tried almost every internet solution there was, nothing fixes the problem. I do not have enough money to buy a new graphics card, so if ANYONE has a fix for this PLEASE tell me.

- Ole

Question 1) what motherboard do you have? does it compare to the recommended (as minimum is only for win7 compatability)

Java Edition hardware requirements – Official Minecraft Wiki

Question 2) have you tried a single screen/monitor set-up instead of the 2?
