I recently got wolfenstein II and needed a gpu driver update. I updated to 17.12.2 and during gaming everything is fine and when gpu is in use everything is fine (was playing for solid 7hrs with no issue) but when im browsing chrome or watching youtube or idle windows i get blackscreen crashes but i can hear the audio, i can interact for another 5 sec of display going black before a full crash happens and i need to power down. I installed the driver correctly following the guide amd recommends and used DDU. I have tried 17.1, 17.7, 17.10.3, 17.12.1 all of them are having the same issue. I went back to my old driver of 16.7.3 and that worked perfectly for 3 days until i updated again. What is the issue? It only seems to crash when idle and only on adrenaline drivers.
