    AMD HD Radeon 7850 crashing when tweaking and playing games

    kwintonius

      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.
