Black screen and crash



I have an intel arc a770 16GB LE and while gaming I have always had this strange black screen and then a reboot, no matter the type of game (Ghostwire tokyo with RT on or a less stressful apex legends).

for the first couple of months I hoped it was the driver that needed a bit of work form you guys but now I think the GPU is the problem.

First of all, temperature are pretty good, 50 celsius degree for the CPU and 70 the GPU.

My second thought was the PSU, 600W BeQuiet, but during the OCCT PSU stress test (with both CPU and GPU 100%) it had no problem.

The last thing I have done is install my very old Nvidia GTX 760, after a DDU cleaning, and it's 4 days i am experimenting no crash in apex legends or chivalry 2. (my eyes are crashing with no AA and low settings)  

Can you please help me?

Thank you and sorry for my poor english.

Try this:

1. Make sure that ReBAR is enabled in BIOS - without ReBAR Arcs just randomly crash...

2. Disable IOMMU in BIOS unless you need it for virtual machines

3. Install latest Intel BETA driver manually by downloading it from Intel

4. Install latest Intel chipset driver for motherboard

5. Disable all Intel GPU services from starting

4. Also disable Intel Arc Control from automatic starting on computer startup as it seems it MIGHT contribute to crashing by monitoring temperatures and so on

6. Try to connect monitor with different cable or connect it to different port, as Arcs seems to be sensitive to some monitor cables and reductions

7. Try to disable HD Audio Driver for Display audio in devices if you don't use sound via display HDMI

8. If it helps, reguralry check for driver updates and enable Intel Arc Control and services and check if they finally fixed it


Try to use two separate cables from PSU instead of one and reseat GPU in it's slot, also that 600W PSU might NOT be really enough...
