    Anyone else getting black screen when pc is idle or under very light usage? Seems like it wasn't happening a couple driver revisions ago but im not positive the exact driver i was using last.....I think its some kind of driver bug that effects certain vega cards? Am i alone with this issue?

    If need be ill restore an image from a couple weeks ago, and reinstall the division2 from backup but i wonder if ill get a performance loss with the older driver....but frack it if it at least works lol

    I was having black-screen "full system freezes" which were actually BSOD's (that I couldn't see, as there was no video-output) on my 1950x. (for reference)

    - Since you said during light usage / low load, I'm guessing that means primarily on the desktop. Try locking your HBM frequency and preventing downclocking via SoftPowerPlay. Might also want to disable any display timeout for the sake of testing.

    Idle crashes that don't happen during gaming tend to be power management related.

    I'm using a Samsung C49HG90 via Displayport as Main Monitor, and a Dell U2311H via HDMI-> Denon AVR X1000 -> DVI Adapter for Sound.
    Every now and then in Idle the Dell Monitor Flickers Black, and every 3rd or 4th flicker the Sound also stutters for a second -.- no clue why... Just startet somewhere after 19.2 drivers... never had it before.
