I have had my GPU without problems for a year now. But for the pass week, I'm having frequent black screen crashes when I'm gaming or watching netflix/youtube, it's a black screen with the monitor staying on, and you can hear the sound of the game/video for a few seconds before it turning into a constant loop or buzz, the only way to recover is to do a hard reboot. I had 16.7.3 installed when it started, so I upgraded to 16.8.1. The crashes continued, First I tried changing PCI slots, cleaning the fans and making sure everything was connected right. The crashes continued to I then used DDU to make a clean install of 16.7.1, a driver that was stable for me before upgrading, and after 2 hours of gaming in dota2 with everything high, and then opening a youtube video in fullscreen, the system crashed to a black screen with the sound described coming out of the speakers. What really worries me is that 16.7.1 was stable for me, before, but now It's crashing.
Is this still a driver issue? Or is there something wrong with my hardware? Any way to make sure my mobo or my gpu aren't dying?
