AMD HD Radeon 7850 crashing when tweaking and playing games

Discussion created by kwintonius on Apr 3, 2018

Hey Guys,

 

This is my first time posting a question on this forum, i will try to explain the situation as good as possible. Bear with me here, because i am a computer newb.

 

I recently purchased a HD Radeon 7850 and installed it in my PC. It worked fine untill i started a game (Fornite) at high.

The screen randomly freezes (black, white, blue, stripes etc.)

 

Setup:

MSI Motherboard MS 7817

HD Radeon 7850 (6 Pin connector to power supply)
16 GB RAM

550 wattage PSU

 

I have checked a decent amount of possible problems that can occur, stated below:

- Running Furmark (99% load, max temp. around 70) for like 10 minutes -> no problems/freezing
- Making sure all old drivers are uninstalled (ddu uninstaller->safe mode->restart with new card ->install most recent drivers

- Update Mobo drivers to most recent

 

 

 

I was wondering if anyone can help me identify the problem, cause i am out of ideas (as i stated, i am a newb to computers)

 

Thanks in advance, i will love u forever! <3

 

Kwinten.
