No game is required, sometimes it happens immediately upon loading Windows. BIOS flashed to 2901 rev (most recent). Tried numerous video drivers including 16.10.2. No change. Putting my R9 285 in and reinstalling drivers for it I have a stable system. Build: Sapphire RX 480 Nitro + 8 GB, FX 8350, 16 GB Ram, ASUS TUF Sabertooth 990 FX r2.0 motherboard, 850 EVO Samsung SSD, 2 GB Western Digital, 700 W OCZ PSU. No CD rom/peripherals. Win 10.
GPU never recovers. Items continue to run in the background. I can RDP in using another household system.
Event Log gives TDR error on AMD driver. Adjusted TDR settings to TdrDelay = 8. No change. Turned off by TdrLevel = 0. No change.
