      Describe your issue:

      • Bought card last Friday played BF1 and Total War: Warhammer with no problems during weekend
      • Serious crash "DX something or other" while playing BF1, display drivers failed afterwards, this was Monday night?
      • Tried using DDU and 16.15 and 16.29 drivers to get it working
      • Kept getting TDR Failures, Windows 10 warning messages that the display driver isn't working properly
      • Formatted my HDD, clean Windows 10 install, let Windows install RX480 drivers itself, instantly the screen flickering comes back, trying to use Edge cause BSOD - TDR Failure
      • Booted into safe mode, used DDU to uninstall drivers, then used the latest drivers (downloaded from AMD website), again screen starts flickering instantly when drivers are loaded, and after restarting computer.
