5700XT - Not getting image output on screen wakeup

I purchased a Sapphire Pulse 5700XT a week ago and I have been having problems from day one.


At first I realized the issue when tried to wake the screen up after it sat idle for 15-20 mins (I set the screen turn off time to 5 mins on Windows). I got a blank screen on wake up and nothing I did brought the image back. I turned the monitor off/on, then I saw a TV static like image (https://www.reddit.com/r/AMDHelp/comments/63k6uo/colorful_static_screen/) show and disappear a few times, after which the desktop showed. But then the monitor showed this error(https://imgur.com/a/8SE3iqu), and the image looked a bit funky. I cannot really pinpoint what's wrong with it but I can easily notice that there is something wrong with it on first glance.


I had the latest driver at that time so I downgraded to 20.4.2. It seemed to be working for few hours, I did some screen wakeup tests and they did work fine until an hour ago


I was using an Nvidia 1050ti on my PC until this recent upgrade, also I have used multiple other laptops with this monitor so I am sure there is nothing wrong with it.


Please help me solve this issue. I really love how this card performs in games and I got it for a decent price, I don't want to return it. Any ideas about what might be wrong?
