SPECS:

  • AMD RX 480
  • AMD FX 8350 8-Core Processor
  • Windows 7 64 bit (DESKTOP)
  • Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.6.2
  • ASRock N68VS3 FX Motherboard
  • Rosewill RG630-S12- Green Series (630W)
  • CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO
  • 4GB RAM

 

Issue:

I recently downloaded the crimson 16.6.2 driver (from the AMD Website) for the RX 480. After downloading the driver, I've have a resolution problem AND every game I start up, my whole computer crashes and restarts itself. I've tried all games from Dota 2, CS:GO, Overwatch... Each game causes my computer to RESTART on startup. At first, I reformatted my whole computer then started to download all the drivers. I even tried reinstalling the drivers but with no luck. What should I do from here?
