    Compatibility issues between AMD driver and Radeon cause black screen?


      I built my new PC with old video card as below. But it always random black screen in low workload.Play game, burn in video card, cpu, etc., no black screen. NO OC. Even lock CPU at 3.7GHz, memory 2133mhz

      My build:

      AMD Ryzen 2700x

      Prime X470 pro BIOS 4011 / 4008

      g.skill f4-3200c16d-16gtzr

      AMD R7 370 4G HDMI to TV, DP to monitor

      EVGA G3 550W

      Win 10 Pro x64 1803


      I thought it's memory issue and RMAed Mobo and memory. The issue still there.

      I swapped the PSU, the issue still there.

      Reinstall win 10, issue still there.

      Install win 10 on M.2 or sata ssd , issue still there.

      changed DP, HDMI cable, still black screen.

      Tried Mobo BIOS 4008, 4011, 4018, 4008 is most stable, few chance of black screen. But still black screen.

      Tried AMD Radeon driver from 16.xxxx to 18.8.1, each black screen.

      Tried AMD chipset drivers from 17.xx to 18.1, each black screen.



      Uninstall all AMD drivers, including Radeon video driver and chipset driver, no black screen.

      I borrowed a GT730 instead of R7 370. No black screen.



      I swapped R7 370 back to old pc, and use the disk installed win 10 when it's on new pc. No black screen.



      i5 2300

      p8z68-v lx

      G skill ddr3 4g*4

      AMD R7 370 4G HDMI to TV, DP to monitor

      corsair vX550w

      win 7 x64 pro sp1 / Win 10 Pro 1803




      So I've swapped everything, it's just a compatibility issue or I should change a CPU?
