          i can confirm this, while not the burning gpu part, since its only 60c or so when the screen getting dark, turn off, and the system freeze and crash, i can somewhat confirm its the newest driver, since the problem occur just after i install the newest driver, THANK GOD the system restore works, already used the computer about 2 hours with no problem at all, even tho theres also no amd driver running on the tray

            Sounds like it could be a faulty PSU.


            What temperature is the GPU reaching? I do not recommend touching it, it's perfectly normal for it to be hot.


            Have you tried a Clean Install AMD Graphics Drivers ?


            Please try setting the GPU Power Limit to +50% in Wattman and click Apply.
