AMD Radeon R7 Graphics issue ? Monitor black

  tom154 18:54 21 May 2019


Recently i've started to have a problem where my display fails, though the pc itself keeps running. I've been unable to refresh the video driver using the windows ctrl and something else button (which i read about on a forum as being a way to help perhaps), which leave me having to switch off the pc and boot up fresh. About 6 months ago i had to link up a second monitor which i thought was perhaps related to this, but it is also failing when i've only got one screen plugged in, so i'm confused.

I'm not a massively savvy regarding all this so am limited in my knowledge here, though i have checked for updates on the graphics card, which came back as no update needed, so i'm at a bit of an impasse now.

I'm on windows 10 pro 64-bit, amd a8-7600, radeon r7, 3.1ghz.

Would appreciate any pointers.

Thanks in advance for anyone able to help.
