[SOLVED] Radeon RX560 screen flicker on Windows

Sep 18, 2019
Hey guys, I'll start by giving the specs to my PC that I put together,
CPU: Core i5-3470
GPU: Radeon RX560 , 4GB
Storage: 128GB SSD + 500GB HDD
RAM: 8GB (8x1)
PSU: 350 Watt
OS: Windows 10 1903 running with the latest drivers from AMD for the GPU

I've been facing screen flickering while I am on windows and chrome etc, if I let the computer stay idle for longer than 5-10 mins it freezes and goes to a black screen until it is restarted which restores functionality, when I play a video in the background or let a video play on the screen, then there is no flicker at all. Same goes for when I play games, there are no stutters or fps drops, everything runs perfect until I am back on windows and it happens again.

Things I have tried:
  • Was using a Display Port for output, switched cables and even tried using a DVI cable
  • Monitored temps inside games which are all normal

Couldn't figure what the issue is because I can play games for as long as I want without any issues but I can't have files copying for longer durations because of the issue, your insights would be greatly appreciated!
