R290 keeps crashing since 4th of January

My Sapphire Tri-X R290 Oc edition was working fine until it started crashing a few days ago and I have no idea what the problem is.  The game screen freezes a few seconds after I log in any 3D game and I have to ctrl-alt-del to end the process.   I have tried at least 10 different version of drivers ranging from last year's drivers to the latest releases performing a clean install each time by using DDU / safe mode .  I have tried removing all GPU overclocking software like MSI afterburner, GPU tweak and Trix. I have even uninstalled the latest Windows updates but the problem persists.  I also removed the card and cleaned it with a blower just in case.  One of the things I have noticed is that sometimes the GPU Core Clock gets stuck at 300Mhz but there were crashes/freezes with the Core Clock working at its normal 1000mhz as well. I have run out of ideas so any help would be greatly appreciated.


I am running Win10 home edition
