I just bought a completely new system with amd parts:
motherboard: msi b350 pc mate (have not looked into updating bios yet - let me know if this is the problem and i will try that and get back)
Processor: ryzen 5 1600 with stock cooler
GPU sapphire pulse rx 580 (updated drivers yesterday)
550w psu from corsair
2x 4gb ram from corsair. this was rated at 2666, but on the bios it is at 2333 (or something similar) - so not at the advertised rate - i doubt this is the cause but i specified anyways
I used a 1tb hard drive from my old pc
here's the problem
When even I quit a game (gta 5, doom, tf2 - only three i have played so far), it quits to my desktop and then after about a secondm my screen goes black and says there is no input signal.
I use a dvi cable to connect to my monitor since my monitor doesnt have a hdmi slot.
The only solution i have so far is: when the monitor goes black, I plug in my tv with a hdmi cable, and unplug the vgi cable. This obv moves the display to the tv and it works. but when I try to plug the vgi cable back in, both screens go black.
If i then unplug vgi cable, my tv works fine.
I then shut off my pc using tv, then unplugged hdmi, plugged in dvi and turned on the pc. it worked, but then when i quit out of gta5 the screen went black again.
I have looked online, and lots of people have had trouble with rx cards and black screens. but it is mostly with the 2nd displays not being recognised, nothing to do with a monitor going black after quitting a game. I am fine with using a single monitor - it just keeps going black wheneven i quit a game.
I hope i dont have to retun the rx 580 and switch to something like a 1060 :(, and i also really dont want to play with a 32" tv screen 2 feet from my eyes.
Would the only possible solution be to get a monitor with a hdmi connection? Why does the rx card even have a vgi connector if it cant support it properly.
Any help would be appreciated. :)
esit: since it is a new motherboard i keep getnig an alert from windows saying to activate windows. But i would have to contact windows support to get that resolved
