    Driver Crashes, Screen Glitching and Black Screens(RX 470).

    itstheyoshi

      Okay so over the past few weeks I have been getting blue screens with the stop code VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE but since the latest driver update they seem to be fixed but now I am getting driver crashes instead. These crashes usually happen within 10 minutes of launching a game, usually causing me to reboot my system to get the driver up and running again. One thing to add is it seems that only a few games will cause this crash such as 7 Days to die, GTA V and Dolphin Emulator, while Overwatch has never crashed.

      As for the screen glitching and black screens these happen together and only on startup from what I can tell. So what happens is I load to the desktop click chrome and then screen freezes and then it will turn different colours and have a "Glitchy" look to it, after this happens I got to a black screen and the computer restarts itself.
