Problem: Screen is blinking every 3 seconds to black. nonstop. Windows 10


Running Windows 10 pro. R9 280X HDMI out to a Yamaha receiver to my HDTV (video AND audio)

I've tried 4 different sets of drivers now from 15.11 to the most recent one and they all do the same thing.

Tried different HDMI cables as well. Nothing helps


Oddly, If I open a sound file (mp3) and play it....the blinking stops.


if I open a youtube video,playing or paused....the blinking stops.


But screen just keeps blinking.


I am dual booting with win 8.1pro and have no issues what-so-ever with 15.11 drivers in win 8.1


I've scoured the internet and cannot find a solution, so Im writing here in hopes to find one.
