      Describe your issue:


      Serious problems on Heroes of the Storm, Diablo 3, Warframe, Dota 2


      Whenever I start these games I get TDR errors and the display driver has recovered from an error black screen. These games crash multiple times every time I play them and sometimes I will get a hard lockup in Diablo 3 and Warframe. The games usually crash when there is a lot happening on the screen at the same time, but they crash at lowest settings even at lower resolutions.


      Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered is what I see on Event Log.


      I don't get any crashes at all on most other games like Doom, Far Cry, Fallout 4, GTA, Shadow of Mordor and War, Batman, Alien Isolation, Everybody's Gone to Rapture, Dark Souls, Dragon Age Inquisition, Witcher 3 or Tomb Raider, Overwatch, World of Warcraft.
