    moved to linux

    pigmentty

      white screen in linux mint periodically for Radeon R7 250X

       

      Hello, i have problem

       

       

      every time i start the os and run something mild (vlc movie, firefox reading emails and other non gpu activities) the pc shows (8/10 times) a white screen (other times it's black), music still plays in the background but i cand do anything else.

       

      Specs: Radeon R7 250X and

      Kernel: 3.13.0-37-generic x86_64 (64 bit) Desktop: Gnome Distro: Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca

       

      I had this same problem a month ago, i ran

       

      apt-get update

      apt-get upgrade

      aticonfig --initial

      amdconfig --uninstall

      apt-get install fglrx

       

      and worked perfectly, but last week i made some updates using the update manager (f*ck me, right?) and problem happened again.

       

      Notes:

      Sometimes after 10minutes of vlc, other times 6 hours of firefox.

      Using the live cd of mint, same thing is happening.

      Ive tried, changing the drivers (driver-manager app) to fglrx-updated and xserver-xorg-video-ati -- not working.

      Ive tried reinstalling, uninstalling, removing folders, purging, dpk-ing (ubuntu12,ubuntu14,ubuntu_x82,linux_82,linux_x82_64, ubuntu_generic etc.) -- not working.

       

      What can i do now?
