So I have been have this problem where I will be browsing the web or listening to music and the screen will suddenly go black (not off). This does not happen when in a full screen game ever. When I hit the space bar to pause the music once the screen has gone black it doesn't pause it. Ive been looking  one tomshardware for a solution, as this seems to be a fairly common problem with AMD R9 series graphics cards on the site, but cannot find one anywhere. Has anyone had a similar problem/know to to resolve it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
