Uninstall any third party overclocking software similar to MSI Afterburner. It clashes with AMD Wattman.
Just mentioned the above in case you should be using a 3rd party Overclocking software on your computer.
As @elstaci mentioned, third party controllers conflict with wattman/AMD settings and controls...Asus tweak (GPU Tweak 2) or any other third party controller should be deleted. Before deletion, use it to reset everything back to the system defaults. Set Wattman back to default settings.
I have done those steps along many many many other steps online including:
Used guru3d to completely remove driver and reinstalled several drivers.
At that point even the old drivers were not helping
I hard power reset the system and reseated the vcard no good
Disabled game mode as the new win update enabled it again no good
Changed power setting
Disabled power save mode (PSS) in Bios no good
What finally worked and i dont know how or why, if someone can explain this feel free but:
I remoted into the desktop and disabled and re-enables the graphics card in device manager and it started to work again.
Don't you just love computers?
