Hey guys I need help with this black screen bug. I'm not the only person experiencing this issue the black screen bug is a common problem with amd cards. Every once and a while which is annoying as heck. My Monitor screen Acer H257HU  has no picture black screen when I wake my computer up. What I have to do is unplug DVI cable and plug back in to fix black screen bug. I am 100% sure there is nothing wrong with my MSI R9 270 2GB. So the culprit must be amd catalyst driver 16.3. I am currently on AMD Catalyst 16.3. Please don't suggest me to update to latest version. Usually newer driver updates make things worse .
