Journeyman III

sapphire rx 580 nitro + 8 GB shuts of signal to monitor while gaming (blackscreen)

I lately have problems with my RX 580 graphics card. Some minutes or seconds into any game (Battlefield, Apex Legends etc...) it somehow turns off the monitor signal which then tells me: "no DVI input". The computer is still running at that time and I need to shut it down via the power switch. However, if I then restart the PC I get a message telling me "Wattman settings reset to standard" and I can play any game then without any problems.

The weird thing is that this is the way it happens always, even though I do not change any settings from the wattman standard settings. I also recognized that the fans seem to be louder (i.e. faster rpm) when starting any game after the restart of the PC and reset of the Wattman settings.

My Specs:

Windows 10 Pro

Intel Core i7 2600k CPU @ 3.4 GHz

16 GB RAM DDR 3 1333 MHz, Kingston HyperX

ASUS P8H61 EVO Mainboard, BIOS Version 4601

Samsung SSD 850 EVO 250 GB

AMD Sapphire RX 580 nitro + 8GB GDDR5
