Random solid color freeze while playing games

Sep 15, 2018
I have been having this issue on my PC where basically whenever I'm playing a game like Overwatch, Apex Legends, etc. after about 5-10 minutes my monitor just turns to a random solid color and I have to hit the power button on my PC and turn it back on to do anything. The sound of the game stops working about 5 seconds after the freeze happens. The weird thing is my PC did not used to do this and I made no hardware changes. I could play any game perfectly fine for about 6 months and then one day it started happening randomly. I got an upgraded PSU and it still happens.


Processor- Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6402P CPU @ 2.80GHz, 2801 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)

GPU- Radeon (TM) RX 480

PSU- EVGA 750 watts (this is the new one that didnt fix the issue)
