I've come here because the internet doesn't seem to have any sort of fix for my issue and unfortunately due to the sporadic nature of this problem I can no longer return my video card.

 

My problem is as follows:
I will launch a game: For this example we'll use MADMAX. When the game opens my display goes black and my computer has shut off (Ish). I now have to flip the switch on my power supply wait about 15 seconds and flip it again to get my PC to power back on. This is extremely irritating as it feels like either I've wasted money on a game or worse I've wasted the nearly $400 on this card.
I then get the error “Default Radeon WattMan settings have been restored due to unexpected system failure.”

 

With others games i play normally, like tomb rider, guildwars 2, shadow of mordor, monsterhunter.

 

Can i get some help please?
