Over the last 48 hours my computer has been very difficult to use.

My computer commonly freezes with a black screen, sometimes returning back and sometimes requiring a full restart.

I have also seen artefacts on a few occasions.


Example times this occurred includes having only Chrome running and only Radeon Settings running.

I have tried drivers 19.1.1, 19.1.2 and rolled back to an driver too


One error message that has popped up is

Default Radeon WattMan settings have been restored due to an unexpected system failure.


I have not had these issues in the past, both my CPU and GPU have remained at low temperatures over this time.



i7 4770k

16gb ram


The inside of my computer is clean and all plugs are securely in place

Please help, I'm not sure where to turn.
