I'm having an issue where games are crashing. For Wolfenstein, the game just crashes to desktop mid-game. No freeze or error. Usually happens in a fight or when lots of things are going on.
For Overwatch, the screen turns gray/blue and I can't do anything except restart the computer manually. When borderless windowed, the home screen also flickers, so I switched to fullscreen.
I recently updated to Windows 10 64 bit education edition from Windows 8.1 and upgraded from a gtx 770 4gb to the rx480 8gb. I never experienced this on Windows 8.1 with the 770.
What I've tried:
-I looked up a fix where you increase the paging file in Windows (Computer>System properties>Advanced System Settings>Advanced>Performance>Advanced>Virtual Memory>increase custom size). That mildly helped, but it's still crashing pretty often.
-Completely remove drivers using DDU and reinstall.
-Change game quality
-Back up to Windows 8.1
-Try on each monitor and unplug the other (happens on both)
-Run benchmarks with Heaven Benchmark and Furmark (there were no issues with GPU at 100% usage)
Any ideas? Defective card?
