[R9 290X] Crimson-16.1.1 random screen artifacts

Question asked by mrsir on Feb 15, 2016

I am running out of patients between this and my graphics driver crashing all the time making me do a hard reboot.


The symptoms are:
Random artifacts across the screen.

Loss of signal resulting in a black screen.

System will also not resume from sleep.


Things I have tried:

I have tried the Clockblocker program, issue still happens and personally I am not interested in using third party software to 'fix' my video card.

This is my second brand new out of the box Gigabyte R9 290X so not faulty hardware.

Third clean install of Windows, compedent using DDU.

Changing hardware acceleration settings in Firefox.


Other information:

The issue never occures while running in safemode or with Intel onboard graphics.

The issue is the same with Crimson 15.12, & Catalyst 15.11.1Beta

I have submitted an AMD issue report
