So, I just bought Asus A16 Advantage (FA617XS-N3026WS).
Since day one occasionally the display just went off. Genrally when opening multiple windows when on power connected. Backlight was there but it was all black. Sometimes I get message of Radeon driver failure. Other times I needed to Hard restart the system. Post failure and driver timeout/reset, I got icons and other things flickering.
Debug steps tried:
1) Ran diagnostics in MyAsus app.
2) Uninstall and Reinstall every single driver that I believe to be culprit. Even reinstalled Armoury crate.
3) Even worked with power profiles because those appeared to be culprits too.
None of those helped.
Finally, I have turned off fast start in windows power setting. It seems to be working now, failure have disappeared but need more testing.
I hope someone can pitch in and/or explain or share in more details. If you have experienced something similar.
According to me, it has something to do with Amd smart switch or other drivers from Amd. Can't be sure but I have seen similar failures when hardware faults.
Any relevant comments are appreciated.
Armoury crate is uninstalled. The system looks stable but needs more testing. It conflicts with AMD drivers and causes system failure.
Nothing truly works. Something to do with smart switch. Disabled smart switch by using GPU ultimate mode. Asus support was of no help.
Formated the system.
Nearly every tweak and solutions tired.
Thank you for reading.
