CPU: i7 3770


Ram: 8GB DDR3

OS: Windows 10 64bit

PSU: Corsair CX600 (600w)

Driver Version: 16.7.3 Crimson

Monitor: Viewsonic va2431wm 1920x1080 @ 60hz dvi to dvi

Motherboard: Asrock h61m-hvs


Have tried using DDU to reinstall drivers. Seemed to work for a few days until tonight. Been playing the same game all day, and then out of nowhere the game would go black while the audio still played. I get this error too in Heroes of the Storm if I try to lower certain graphic settings.


Maybe it's because it's an XFX brand. The thing came factory overclocked but it's a weak card so I'd rather not make it weaker if I can help it by underclocking.


Here's the link to the card



Any help would be greatly appreciated.


One important thing that I noticed was while I was playing Heroes of the Storm. I changed two settings, terrain and shaders, down to Low. Half way through the next game, maybe 10 minutes, my game crashed. Then the next game, same thing. I changed them back to Ultra where they originally were and I haven't crashed since. So apparently some games need to be on certain graphic settings in order for it not to crash. Some games crash a lot, others never crash at all. I'm pretty sure it's a driver issue. But I can't exactly go back to an old one since they didn't support rx 400 series.


SFC scan came back clean. I don't know what else to try.
