Freesync Issue

I am encountering a weird Freesync issue. I have a Sapphire R7 360 Nitro with 2 GB and an LG Gaming Monitor 22mp68vq-p.
The two are connected using a Gembird cable (Displayport in the video card and HDMI in the monitor).

I activate the Freesync in the monitor menu and also in AMD Crimson 16.10.1 (which is the latest).

I can play normally, everything works well. However, if I leave the Freesync ON and restart or shutdown my computer, the next time I turn it on, or the next time it starts,

the computer screen remains BLACK. Nothing loads, Bios does not load anymore, windows does not boot, keyboard is shut and there's no light under the mouse, SSD will not load, no LEDs will be on (except for the computer being powered on of course).

The Moment I change the cables (dvi in the video card and hdmi in the monitor) that's the moment it will start. It is not an issue with the monitor (I guess) because I can unplug it, and the computer will still be dead and nothing will move. The moment I add a different cable in the Video Card, that's the moment it will start loading the bios and booting into the windows.


Other than this, if I disable Freesync in windows before shutting down the PC, then there's no problem. It does not annoy me that much, but I thought it would be a good idea to report it and maybe find a solution or at least an explanation.


Thank you
