Issue -

Multiple crashes since installing card, Event Viewer shows similar issues- The AODDriver 4.X service failed to start due to the following error: The system cannot find the path specified.

 

Amd OverDrive is not installed, this error still happens after a fresh clean install of most current AMD drivers. This crash happens randomly, and on AODDriver 4.1, 4.2, 4.3; 4.3.0 is new and did not show up till a fresh install of drivers completed.
This crash shows in one of two ways -

     Display goes completely Black (Or Green) and then no response from system unless power button is held and system shuts down.

     Display becomes checkered - Red/White colored, then system becomes stable for a few hours then Black Screen.

 

Actions happening before crash, browsing internet, watching Youtube (Netflix, Amazon Prime), no crash has happened while playing any games. Each crash time is random also, !
