whenever im playing a game my computer will freeze then black screen and become unresponsive and require a hard reset. This has happened since i got my r9 390 8 months ago.
8gb hyperX ram
msi r9 390
Can you say which games exactly? What drivers were you using since you notice problems, have you tried 15.11.1 or 15.12 to see if it fix the problem?
Maybe tried RMA to make sure is not GPU faulty?
Sorry for late reply I rma'ed the card but it still crashes
same problem here with my R9 280x
What that is,is an older profile still stuck in your system.Where you download your driver.There should be a cleaning program that will remove all traces of previous installed drivers an Profiles.First set your profiles to default.Then run the cleaner.Once you did that it should remove your driver.Another way is to Set everything in Crimson in default then uninstall the driver.THEN run the cleaner.This works best i think.
Once that is done you should install the latest driver.An have no issues.I have found that the graphics card is storing profiles on the card.Not only on the system but your graphics card as well.So yes.You do need to clean this every now and again.This also goes for the RX-480 and others.
I have used ddu in safe mode but that still hasnt helped
I also have same black screen issue (no signal..only in gaming). All old and new driver doesn't works or fix it. As suggested in another thread, I raised the power target to +20% in MSI Afterburner and do TDR windows seems fixed the issue. Now i am using Crimson 16.11.5
For TDR windows adjustment
