Hi,

 

Recently I bought a PC from a friend of mine, and it was absolutely fine. After 2 months GPU started to behave weirdly, like crashing? It throws a black screen and freezes sound, so whole computer gets crashed I guess. It happens every time I play a game (for example CS:GO) and alt+tab to desktop, or when I use some 2D apps (like damn desktop?). I've read some topics there, and even other forums and nothing helped... It happens on every drivers I tried, now I use newest one (Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.8.1 Optional). Windows throws only force shutdown error, when I have to turn it off with a button after a crash.

 

Unhelpful solutions:

Restoring BIOS to default (various options),

Reinstalling drivers,

Uninstalling drivers with DDU in safe mode and installing them again.

 

My PC config is:

CPU: Intel i5-4460,

MOBO: Asus Z97-A

GPU: Sapphire R9 390 NITRO Tri-X (without backplate)

PSU: Corsair CX750M

 

It made me sad, cuz it wasn't cheap, I do not even have a box for this GPU to send it to AMD service, and the warranty is gone, so I will have to pay for fixing it (if it is possible of course)
