Rx 480 strange problem

Recently i purchased an rx 480 (MSI gaming X) and i've been facing some strange issues with it. My monitor sometimes turns black while i am browsing the internet (usually happening after a gaming sesion). The actual strange part is that if i alt tab (on anything: ex: Steam,, even a word document) the monitor image reappears, and works just fine. I checked some forums, and every one who was getting black screened needed to hard reset the computer, cause something was failing, which for me is not the case it seems. Any ideea what might cause the problem?

PS: I am using a pretty old monitor (Philips) which has only VGA, so i am using an HDMI to VGA adapter.

PS2: It never happened for my monitor to turn black while gaming.


My specs:

CPU: intel i5 6600k

RAM: 8gb DDR3

PSU: 600W (i am pretty sure this is not the problem since my computer is not failing to hard reset it)
