AMD Videocard problem with Google Chrome

Hello guys. I have a big and annoying problem I hope you can help me.

If I use GPU Hardware Acceleration in Chrome many times I got an error: "Default Radeon WattMan settings have been restored due to unexpected system failure" and the the screen turns off about 1 sec. I play at the moment many games without problem so I dont think my Video Card / or my power supply is the problem. When I turn off this GPU Hardware Acceleration in Chrome everything is okay, but I want to know what is this and why can't use this feature in Chrome with my AMD Card.

Sorry for my bad english, my specs:

Core I7 6700, Sapphire R9 390X, ASUS ROG Ranger VIII, 16GB DDR4

The option to turn off hardware acceleration is there for a reason. Disabling it is the standard fix for issues such as yours. You lose nothing by disabling it.
