Hello. When I'm trying to turn on my AVR when my PC is running, there's 50/50 chance that the PC will show a light blue (NOT the normal blue) BSOD (VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE, atikmpag.sys). Otherwise, the PC could freeze for around 5sec., then it'll work normaly.


Issue is occuring with the 20.3.1 and 20.4.1 drivers, the 20.2.2 drivers appear to be stable. Also, the freeze with the AVR power on is much shorter with the latter driver.

Also, my PC boot time from a cold start (NOT hibernation), and restart time is longer by a few seconds with the 20.3.1 and 20.4.1 drivers for some reason.

Monitor: Samsung C24FG73, connected via DP.
AVR: Sony ST-DH590, connected via HDMI.
