rx 580 drops signal to monitor

I play many games on my computer and have recently upgraded to a Radeon RX 580. Some games play fine. The games that do not play well all have the same issue. Cinematics run fine, but once actual gameplay begins the monitor loses signal and goes into sleep mode. This occurs on two completely different monitors. I have done everything suggested to troubleshoot this issue, but nothing has resolved it. The main game that has the issue is COD: WWII. Below is all the system info on my updated RX 580.

Radeon Settings, Global, Wattman" Set power limit slider all the way to the right (+50), it is beneath the fan settings.

Set power profile to high performance.

Disable hybrid sleep. Use standby.

This will likely take care of it. Report back if not.

Make sure to do a reboot after changing all this.

Good luck!

Re: rx 580 drops signal to monitor

I tried those tips and it did nothing for me. I have the same problem as scchicora where my RX 580 will "drop signal" to my monitor. It only happens when I am playing Star Wars Battlefront II (2017). All other full screen apps and games I have no issues.

The game will run fine but then suddenly and at random, video will cut out and my monitor will act like it lost signal (turn completely black). The game audio is still happening, inputs are still working, just no video. After a few seconds the video will resume and my monitor will show the on-screen display overlay as if it just detected a signal. 

This is extremely annoying and has been happening since 18.2.1 update

Unfortunately this did not fix the problem. I have even lowered all graphics settings to their min with no effect.

Re: rx 580 drops signal to monitor



I haven't come across a game that does this with my RX580.  Please post all the games effected, maybe I have one and can try it here.

Also be specific about your monitor/cable connections.

If it's only one game, are there hints on the game's forums?

Describe your issue:

  • Provide a detailed description of the issue you are experiencing and the steps required to reproduce the issue.
    • During gameplay, the monitor "loses connection" (screen goes black, as if I pulled the display cable out of the monitor) for a few seconds. Inputs from mouse+keyboard are still registered, audio still produced. Video returns after a few seconds. This happens seemingly randomly, and also can be once or many times in succession. No specific steps to produce this, just playing the game (Star Wars Battlefront 2)
  • Details about applications/games affected (including version number)
    • Star Wars Battlefront 2 (2017) is the only game I have played that produces this issue. I have been playing the game since 11/2017 and have noticed this issue since more recent Radeon updates (18.2+)
  • Graphical settings used in the application/game (resolution and 3D settings)
    • All settings are Low. Resolution I tested 1080p and 1440p. Currently running at 1080p
  • If possible, include a screenshot or video link of the issue
