I've been having this issue for well over a year now. My pc will hard crash. No warnings, no freezing, no sound loops, nothing. Just instant shut-off/restart while gaming (and no crash dumps are generated.....). For a while, it seemed fine, then it came back. After working with different hardware, etc I figured it was time to change my graphics card. New card, new drivers, no crashes! Then Battlefield 1 came out, new drivers. My crashes returned. NOOOOOO! I revert my drivers, no crash. Windows has an update. I play a game, crash. Windows updated my drivers....grr..revert, no crash.
I have tried EVERY driver update, and ALL crash my PC. The version of Crimson I can run is 16.8.3. This version, and this version alone, is the only one that will NOT crash my system while gaming. I've about had enough of this, and need to get to the bottom of it. Here are my specs, and I've also attached a dxdiag log in case anyone needs that too. Since the crashes don't generate dump files, I don't have any crash dumps to supply.
