Vega 64 keeps on crashing on Windows 10

I recently just installed Vega 64 into my Windows 10 PC.  However, upon completion of display driver installation, my Windows desktop keeps on stuttering badly.  I look up the task manager and noticed that csrss.exe is using up to 99% of my GPU 3D resource.  The usage is not consistent, keeps on fluctuating from 0-99%.  Which renders my PC to be inoperable.  Once a while Wattman will crash complaining that default settings have been restored due to unexpected system failure.

 

It only happens when I install Radeon Vega into my system.  I tried both Vega 64 and also Vega 56, same issue.  I even tried different graphics drivers from AMD, same issue.

However, if I install Nvidia GPU to the same system, no such problem.  And I did use "display uninstaller" to remove all GPU drivers prior to installation.

 

Anyone has any idea what's happening?

 

General spec of my PC:

Windows 10 Version 1809

Intel 4790K CPU

Gigabyte Z97 Gaming 7

16 GB DDR3 RAM

Samsung 960 EVO SSD
