GPU Glitching - Monitor Going Black

So I recently was able to put together and actually get my Xmas present going.  Unfortunately it worked for roughly 24 hours before it started having major graphics problems (or what I think are graphics problems).


While running if I do nothing, nothing bad happens.  If I, however, try to do anything beyond sit on the desktop (go onto the internet, open a program etc) The screen shows a graphical glitch and then goes black.  The computer appears to still be on with stuff possibly happening (not too sure on that account as I don't have a real way to test it).


My Card:

Sapphire Radeon R9 390 8GB Nitro Video Card


The rest of my setup:

Intel Core i7-5820K 3.3GHz 6-Core Processor

Noctua NH-D15 82.5 CFM CPU Cooler

Asus X99-A/USB 3.1 ATX LGA2011-3 Motherboard

G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory

Samsung 950 PRO 256GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive

Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

EVGA 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply


Core i7-5820K 3.3GHz 6-Core, Radeon R9 390 8GB Nitro, Define R4 Blackout ATX Mid Tower - System Build - PCPartPicke


Update- I loaded in safe mode and tried to ran the utility to remove all the AMD things I had installed previously.  Then downloaded new drivers and loaded them.  I think it is a driver problem as things seem to function in safe mode and the screen does not black out in normal mode until I install the drivers.
