I'm having trouble getting my Carrizo chip to work on this linux distro with the amdgpu driver. Sometimes I get a blank screen and sometimes I get a normal video display that eventually goes blank. The laptop does not lock up since I can use SSH to log in from another computer and reboot the computer which may or may not give a login screen. The problem repeats itself. Here is the output from lspci and uname:

If I use the boot option nomodeset the display is stable but the resolution is less than desired.
