GPU Unstable and I'm Lost

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi,

Currently, My system is unstable and can either randomly freeze or black screen when I am in windows, forcing me to force restart.

I have tried reinstalling my driver both 19.3.3 and 19.1.1, through AMD Driver Removal tool and DDU. I have cleared CMOS multiple times and reinstalled AMD Chipset drivers. System is stable with no GPU drivers or in Safe mode but is unstable as soon as the driver installation is complete and often freezes half way through installation or when I'm restarting.

Originally I had borrowed a Friends GTX1070 and RAM kit to troubleshoot with. It was unstable with a GTX 1070 but when I replaced both the ram and gpu it was stable. So I bought new RAM and a RX560. I tested with both but problems still occur.

 

Sometimes when I restart the system boot loops and I'm forced to cut Power from the power supply, other times when I try restarting I get beep codes from my Motherboard which are;

1 Long 3 Short Beeps

5 Short Beeps

5 Long Beeps

 

System:

-Ryzen 5 1600 No OC

-MSI RX 580 8GB Gaming X Stock Settings Driver 19.1.1

-Asrock AB350M Pro4 BIOS 5.10

-Corsair 2x4GB 3000Mhz C16

 

Thanks for the help! :)

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee! The Cassette Deck!

Well that rules out PSU, have you tried updating the BIOS?

the bios was originally 3.30 which is that it resets to after CMOS is cleared.

I had updated it to the 3.40 Bridge bios before updating to 5.10

The issue occurs in all 3 bios updates.

Propably a memory issue. Although it improved with BIOS updates (that's why BIOS updates are absolutely VITAL for AMD) Ryzen is very picky about memory. Often times you can only go as high as 2933 at best, even with the 2xxx Ryzen series. So, just try to clock your memory down if nothing else works.

I have tried 2 different sets of memory.

First one was Corsair 1x8GB 2400Mhz i tried both 2400mhz and 2133Mhz

Second one was Corsair 2x4GB 3000Mhz. I had tried 2933Mhz, 3000Mhz and 2133Mhz

they all still had the problem reoccurring.
