Hi I need help regarding AMD drivers that seem to cause flickering that turns the display to black freezing my computer in the process. This is the first time I have experienced this issue, I was on the 18.2.1 patch when this issue occurred and tried to fix it by updating to the optional patch 18.4.1 but the issue still remained. What's really curious was when I completely removed all AMD drivers and was left with the default window driver all the flickering ended and everything seemed normal besides not having AMD drivers installed. I have tried a couple of things to maybe resolve this like reverting to older AMD drivers, replacing my old power supply with a new one, and cleaning out old AMD drivers and reinstalling the latest one. Can anyone help me with this?

 

My system specs are:

OS: Windows 10 (64 bit)

GPU: R9 390

CPU: i5-4690k

Memory Type: GDDR5

System Memory: 16 GB

Core Clock: Default (1015 MHz)

Radeon Software Version: 18.4.1

Radeon Software Edition: Adrenalin
