so ive bought my pc recently with new parts and i am recieving errors whilst playing games.


In the event viewer i get loads of these "Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered." it makes gaming not an option as this happens a couple seconds to minuites, The game will crash. This happens across multiple games.


GPU -  Powercool rx 460 2gb

CPU - FX6300

motherboard - gigabyte GA-78lmt-usb3

500w corsair powersupply (Thought it was the psu before, bought this one from my friend and the errors continue.

2 x 4gb corsair ram

Cooler Master: Hyper 212 EVO


the error:

when a game is launched and the error occurs my monitors goes black (no signal) a couple of times and then the game will just crash, sometimes i get "directx has encountered an unrecoverable error"

Im using 16.9.2 drivers, i have tried using ddu and reinstalling. I have reformated windows just in case and also tried the tdr reg fix to no luck...


Im starting to think ether the drivers are badly configured for this card or it has a defect.
