16.12 bugged with black screen

Hey Guys,


Well I got an email telling me about the new driver for my AMD R9 200 series 270x card.

So I uninstalled old driver restarted, then installed new win8.1-64bit-radeon-software-crimson-relive-16.12.1-dec7 and restarted.

I thought everything was fine but I was wrong.


I went to play some games such as Fallout 4 and a couple others and there is a big problem with the drivers.

My screen keeps going black and it lasts from 1 second to 15 seconds and happens at random times but often enough to make game play impossible.

If I am in a fight I get hurt or killed as I can't see when screen goes black.


Dxdiag say things are fine and shows no graphics issues.

And if I am not in any game such as desktop browsing I have no problem.

It is only when playing games that I get black screens off then on while I try to play.


I have no choice but to revert to old driver as the new one is just to unstable.

I have attached my dxdiag file just to be safe.

I am running Windows 8.1 64bit if that matters.


Just thought I would post to let people know.

Thanks for your time.
