  1. Have you overclocked the gpu?

    i actually havent overclocked it technically speaking coz i just ran the program as soon as i installed it. im still trying to learn how to overclock it when this happens multiple times. the gpu comes preoverclocked at 1080mghz (with msi gaming app )

    Then it should be a driver problem I suppose. Had something similar to what you have right now and here's what fixed it:
    - Get rid of anything msi or amd related (unistall/delete)
    - Restart pc
    - Download the latest AMD drivers here : http://support.amd.com/en-us/download
    - Install the drivers without any of the extra's MSI deliver
    - Stablity test
    - 3rd party software installation

    Hope this helps. Keep me posted
