Ok I really need help with this since I think I might have messed up things while trying to fix it.


Once I bought the PC I had problems certain games doing the "Display drivers have been recovered". It happened with Counter-strike and World of Warcraft and only those 2. The screen would flash and I would get that message. Trying work arounds I found here like unninstalling the default windows 10 update drivers and so on fixed the issue fox Counter-Strike Global offensive but  things got a  lot worse for other games that I didnt have this problem. Now I dont get the flashing screen and Driver recovered anymore. The screen just goes black and I get the No signal messagem from my display ( I use HDMI cables to plug). I can still hear the sound on the background but the only way to make the pc run again is a force shutdown.



Games that this happens now:


World of Warcraft : 10 minutes playing and I get the black screen ( previews driver stopped responding and has been recovered)

Blade and Soul : 1 hour or 2.



I've done a windows 10 reset and Installed nothing but those 2 games and the lastests drivers and I still get the black Screen.

Also I've tried old drivers and I did use the AMD clean Utility to test old drivers and new ones.

Basically I didnt have black screens, I would get the error message Driver stopped responding and has recovered but now I get the black screen and I dont know how to fix that ( since even a windows 10 reset didnt fix).
