Whenever I join a game in rainbow six or bf2 for example my screen goes black while my pc is still running, the VGA light on my motherboard then turns on and I have to shut down my computer to turn it back on.
I have tried re-seating my gpu and nothing happened, any help would be much appreciated.
Specs:
Msi B350 pc mate
Ryzen 1500x
Gigabyte 2070
32 gb 3200mhz ram
Corsair CX 750 w
Windows 10 64 bit.

Thanks again
-Andrew

Flash? Why? That's usually a bad idea unless the manufacturer tells you to do so.

RMx or RMi, the basic RM has low quality capacitors.
