Question Strange r7 370 issue


Jan 19, 2016
I had the r7 370 4gb card in,when I would update it,the program would get about 3/4 of the ways done,and go to a black screen for 10+ min then the comp is just locked needing a hard reboot..When I would do that,the pc would then be unable to load into windows,getting to the windows logo,but then going to a black screen and locking up again..I had to re-clean install windows to get back into my account,and then took out the card to replace it with a different card,and tried updating both windows and the graphics drivers..It worked,so far everything is okay,I'm just curious what is going on with my r7 card that is causing my OS to pretty much be locked/borked up so bad,that it needs to be clean installed

Current specs are now
Operating System: Windows 10 Home 64-bit
CPU: AMD FX-6300 47 °C Vishera 32nm Technology
RAM: 8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 933MHz (10-11-10-30)
Motherboard: MSI 970 GAMING (MS-7693) (CPU 1) 33 °C
Graphics: 2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 (Gigabyte) 34 °C
Monitor: Acer GF276 (1920x1080@60Hz)

[edit] I am planning on putting the r7 into an older PC to see if it will run in that,and if it does,that would tell me something is wrong with the r7 to my motherboard?
