Since months there is a chance that if i Alt Tab out of WoW if ReLive is enabled, my computer could Black screen for 10~ seconds before the driver recover and Wattman says the settings were reset due to an unexpected failure or something like that, i don't remember the message exactly, then ReLive would stop working.


More rarely it could be a Blue Screen with "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL"


If i disable ReLive i don't have any crashes anymore, so i'm using the Windows Game DVR now.


What i tried:

Disabling ReLive (Fixes the problem)

Leaving all ReLive settings to default

Disabling/closing literally EVERY background programs, then any process i could find in the Task Manager and even some services.

Changing some WoW settings

Disabling Fullscreen optimizations

Clean install the driver using AMD Cleanup Utility

Clean install the driver using DDU

Unplugging my other screens

New clean install of the driver after enabling CSM and disabling Secure Boot

Switched the BIOS Switch on my Vega 64

New Windows install on another drive

Disabling Freesync

And maybe some other things i forgot, will edit the thread once i remember.


GameDVR & Game Mode are disabled.
