    RX480 atikmpag.sys BSOD/artifacts


      I'm having problems with my MSI RX 480 which I replaced because I kept getting the same BSOD after seeing artifacts but i'm still getting the same problem.

      - I have tried older drivers,

      - Everything is up to date

      - Reinstalled Windows 10.

      - Doesn't happen when using the Intel graphics

      - Tried both PCI slots and VGA cables

      - No manual overclocks

      My Build

      - i5 6500, B150 Gaming M3, Hyperx Fury DDR4 8GB, EVGA Supernova G2 550w


      I see the artifacts and then the monitor will go off and on with different coloured artifacts (I've attached pictures) until I get a BSOD that says VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE and the cause is atikmpag.sys, it normally happens when I login and has happened once while playing GTA V, my guess is the motherboard is faulty but has anyone got any idea what else it could be?IMG_0522.JPGIMG_0523.JPG
