If i'm on my desktop the monitor screen goes randomly wild. You cannot see anything on the monitor/desktop anymore until you restart. The screen is not black, it's just flickering wild. Please check my attached file with the screenshot.




After a restart everything goes back to normal. It's happening always randomly. The issue was there with the 16.1 driver and it's still there with the newest 16.1.1 Hotfix - I even removed the whole drivers and installer everything new - but no change. Tested a second monitor, but no change. Tested it with HDMI and DisplayPort - no change.


I'm pretty sure it is a driver / AMD GPU issue. Any ideas what to do?


Thank you
