    Blackscreen after minimizing fullscreen games - RX 480 8GB

    woriono

      So, after 3 weeks of not using my PC a problem occured to me. Everytime I try to minimize or terminate a game (tried The Witcher 3, League of Legends and Counter Strike: GO), my screen turns black. I figured that the system is still running normally by testing Windows sounds, but the screen wouldn't turn on again. Then, after restarting the PC, the graphics card starts ventilating extremely loud for 2-3 seconds. What I tried is updating my AMD drivers, which didn't change a thing (sadly I don't know the version I had before), searching for viruses and shutting down background programs like f.lux.

      Any suggestions on how to fix this or is this a known problem (maybe recent Windows updates?)?

      Thanks in advance

      Windows 10 Professional

      Intel Core i5-2400 @ 3,1Ghz
