5600XT - Limited Resolution - Device Not Started (amdkmdag)

Have a 5600 newly installed , full model MSI RADEON RX 5600 XT MECH OC

GPU is highly unstable and unreliable. When i install drivers i am immediately limited to 1200x900 resolution (wont even show higher), i can get a 4k resolution if i uninstall gpu driver and rollback everything (so in a way installing driver is worse ).

What i could find about the issue is that in the device manager on events tab of the display adapter, i see

Device configured(oem7.inf) (sometimes it is 6 or 5 after repeated restarts)

Device not started (amdkmdag)  error, another thing i notice is that pc takes forever (at least 30-40 sec) to power down (motherboard power down) after the windows is shut down.

Strangely on the general tab it says device is working properly

Driver version is 27.20.12029.1000 (dated 9-9-2020) which is the recommended version, i tried other version as well, same result. I managed to get it work somehow at start and then later on and off but is it highly unstable.

Does anyone know the reason and solution to this?

Can provide more input
