Hi... ive had this issue for over a month now, and to break it down

My screen goes idle... like, idk if its idle or not, but theres no image, just black screen... with backlight... i have the newest drivers

Specs are:

CPU: AMD fx 6300

GPU: Radeon R9 280x 3GB not oc

RAM:8GB

PSU: 800W

OS: 8.1 64bit

 

i usually avoid this issue just by opening a game on steam quickly, letting it load, and wait a few minutes before opening applications such as chrome or VLC media player...

HDMI cable is used... 

Any help will be appreciated, and if you have questions, please, ask.

 

TY!

did you remember situation when it start, maybe you tweaking Windows or something?

did you try with another cable (also try to revert coonection side)? with connecting to DVI or VGA? did you try to update vga bios?

try to fully uninstall Catalist and monitor drivers, check screen reaction with "standart vga driver" on your vga
