17.12.1 causing Overwatch to crash

Question asked by saltyboblet on Dec 15, 2017

I used to get the "rendering device lost" error. Downloaded 17.12.1 yesterday and now Overwatch crashes my computer.


The screen goes black, then says it's disconnected and going into standby. I can still hear audio from the game. My computer is unresponsive and the only thing I can do is turn it off.


I have tried every suggestion Blizzard has been giving for the "rendering device lost" error. Nothing fixed the problem then and it isn't working now either. There is no temperature problem or whatever else.


Nothing has changed except I've upgraded the driver.


I'm kind of at my wits' end here. Tempted to just revert back to the old, old driver (17.7.1 or whatever it was) because at least the "rendering device lost" error only crashed the game, not my entire PC.
