I have the following PC specs:
  • CPU: i5-7400
  • Mobo: MSI B250-M Mortar
  • CPU Cooler: Cryorig H7 Quad Lumi
  • GPU: MSI Gaming X RX 470 4GB
  • RAM: G.Skill Trident Z Royal (2x8GB 3200mhz)
  • PSU: Seasonic Focus Gold 550W
  • SSD: Samsung 860 Evo 256GB
  • HDD: 1 TB Seagate Barracuda
  • Case: NZXT S340
From the time I've built my PC, i haven't overclocked my GPU. My PC starts freezing seconds after Windows desktop loads every time. When the freezing happen, my monitor displays full blank color with any of the following: black, dark blue, light green, light pink, etc. The GPU also starts to heat up while the fans are not rotating. Way before this problem occurs, when I turn on my PC it displays a error that says something like "Radeon settings have recently have encountered a problem. Stock settings has been loaded.". I just ignored that error because i was thinking it was AMD driver bug since my PC is just running fine when I'm using it particularly in gaming. I've done the following tests below:

  • Used DDU and reinstall drivers, it doesn't work.
  • Installed old versions of AMD drivers(19.5.2), it doesn't work.
  • I've pulled out the GPU and directly connect the DP to the MOBO, PC doesn't freeze.
  • Connected the GPU and use it without drivers installed, PC doesn't freeze.
What could be causing the problem? Thank you very much for the help.

Please post your entire system spec including PSU make and model.
Do you have latest BIOS installed?
How long have you had the card?
I have updated the details, sorry. I have the card about 2 years already. With regards of the BIOS, do you mean the BIOS on my MOBO?
