New Build- recurring blue screen of death on using Chrome

Feb 1, 2019
Hi all. I recently built my first pc- a process which went well, I found enjoyable, and has resulted in a computer I've enjoyed other than the problem listed. In short, I am an artist/ illustrator and I built the pc mostly to do image editing and creation with photoshop elements, premiere elements, and lightroom. I also wanted to do a bit of gaming.

The machine runs without a hiccup most of the time using any of the above programs; it works fine streaming to my xbox; it works fine playing Warframe and Fortnite. It only seems to crash when I'm on the Chrome browser (though I think it may have done it on the Steam app too which I have subsequently uninstalled). Generally, I'll click on an artist's website or image (not porn- really!) and something causes the BSD.

The BSD cause message at the bottom of the screen lists different causes. Windows issues a message after the BSD that Radeon Wattman setting have been set to default.

I'll list the components below. I did not update the bios on install. The only change I made in the bios was to set the memory speed to 3000. I did update the MSI driver from their website. I have updated Windows. I did run Windows' diagnostic tool to check the memory and received a message that everything was fine. Everything is stock. Nothing is overclocked.

Thanks in advance. Hopefully I've listed all the pertinent info here. I'm clearly not a big gaming/ pc building guy.
