Heya guys, I know there've been quite some posts regarding driver issues and whatnot about the RX 5700 XT but I have yet to find a post with the same issue as I have.

Every time I open something that is (I think) hardware accelerated (probably) my GPU crashes and closes the program if it can and if it can't it will just block the program from accessing the GPU at all.

Now, I tried to open the Radeon Settings to change some things because I read that underclocking might solve some issues regarding crashes, only to find out that application is also affected by the crashing driver...

I've uninstalled the drivers with DDU multiple times and tried it with the 19.7.5 drivers as well as the most recent one and it changes nothing at all.

Also did a clean install of windows a couple of times now.

Everything was fine and running normally untill I played some Destiny 2 a few days ago and it crashed. I could play all the games I wanted (including WoW, Destiny 2, Conan Exiles etc). Now, it only runs normal and modded minecraft without crashing... Keeps me occupied for the time being I guess...

The only thing I currently have OC is the CPU and RAM but setting it back to default in all scenarios changed nothing regarding the black screen crashes I get.

GPU: Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 XT PULSE

CPU: Intel i5 9600K

Motherboard: Z390 Aorus Pro

RAM: Corsair DDR4 Vengeance LPX 2x8GB 3600

PSU: Corsair RM650x Gold

Operating System & Version: Windows 10 Pro

GPU Drivers: Radeon Software Andernalin 2019 Edition 19.9.2


I also did some memory tests to be sure my RAM was fine, everythings okay on that side.

Also did some disk checks, nothing wrong there either.

Thanks in advance.
