Screen Goes Black While Gaming.

I have been playing games on my AMD PC, that I bought roughly 2 weeks ago. Ever since I bought it, while I have been playing games, the 2 screens would lose signal. I phoned up the producers of my PC & they told me to install some AMD drivers (which I have now done around 3 days ago).


I got onto my PC today to start playing some games & after around 20 minutes or so, the screens went black then after about 5 seconds gained signal. There was a notification at the bottom from Radeon Settings saying "Default Radeon WattMan settings have been restored due to an unexpected system failure" the game then crashes and I have to go into Task Manager to kill the instance. I've also downloaded a program called 'WhoCrashed', I clicked analyse and it hasn't found any crashes. Help is appreciated


Games that have crashed:

- Minecraft (Also Modded)

- Team Fortress 2

- Skyrim

- Kerbal Space Program

- theHunter

I have also played 'The Impossible Game', but that hasn't crashed

I wasn't sure which specs to put so I threw in some Graphics specs as well in case that could help solve the issue.

Please could you not comment saying 'I have this issue too', because it doesn't help me to resolve this, or others who have this issue.

If there is any more information you'd like to know, please let me know! I'm desperate to get this resolved.
