A friend gave me an AMD R9 290X and I swapped it for my old Nvidia 670 GTX. Naturally I uninstalled all drivers/control panel/etc for Nvidia and then installed the full AMD suite. [I've since installed ONLY the drivers, read on...]
i7 4790K @ stock
AMD R9 290X w/ latest drivers @ stock speeds
Gigabyte Z97X-UD5H mobo
SanDisk SDSSDHP256G (SSD drive w/ Windows)
Windows 10 will now, regularly, "crash" due to low memory. Applications will give errors about not being able to write or read memory, explorer will basically kick the bucket, and I'll either find the computer in a rebooted but not logged in state or the desktop will be blank with only the taskbar visible. A full reboot is generally the only solution to the problem. I should note this only happens if I leave the computer running and I'm NOT using it for a period of time. I've never actually seen the problem created while using the PC, only after coming back to it (I never turn off the PC).
I know that this is related to the AMD drivers/card, but don't know what to do about it or even how to troubleshoot it. I don't see anything in event viewer that indicates the problem. I've never had this problem before moving to the AMD card. I tried uninstalling everything and then using ONLY the drivers (no program suite), but no luck.
I can't find anything online about this so I'm very confused as certainly I'm not the only one experiencing this?
Any help is appreciated,
