    HD7870 controller stopped working

    javico

      I am having problems with this card since a month. It just happens when I am playing any game, it happened to me with Smite, Cities Skylines and Total War: Warhammer.

      Suddenly the screen freezes and it turns black. Windows says that the controller stopped working and I have to reset the game. I have tried playing in windowed mode, and it happens anyway but at least I dont have to close the game. It's kind annoying.
