Games keep going to blackscreen

Question asked by tliish on Aug 7, 2018

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 SP1, Radeon R7 200 12gb RAM

 

Up until a couple of weeks ago, everything was fine. Then games started randomly going to black screen, sometimes after a couple hours of playing, but only every few days. Then the black screen started popping up every time I've played, usually after a mere few minutes, now it goes blackscreen almost immediately. Computer remains on, but video signal is lost to monitor. Have to reboot to get a video signal again.

 

Problem started with the last upgrade to 18.5.2.

 

Now every game is unplayable.

 

I see this is a very common problem, and it seems there should be an easy fix for it, but knowing software companies, I know that's unlikely.

 

Anyone know how to fix this?
