Random 1-3 second black screens when playing Battlefield 1

  1. I am having continued issues with random, short duration black screens in BF1. I have no idea what the cause is and I've tried 144Hz, 120Hz and 100Hz and it happens randomly and multiple times on each.

    My specs are as follows:
    Viewsonic XG2401 1080/144Hz
    Ryzen 5 1600
    G.Skill 16Gb 2400MHz
    XFX RX580 8Gb

    Any ideas why this is happening and how I can resolve it?

    Check for something running in the background - I found a system notice pop-up window that kept initializing and also, the status report from my backup service.

    It would appear to be a known driver issue so I've had to go back, as someone suggested, to 17.1.1. Things seem to be ok now.

    Maybe your drivers are outdated. Try to update them and see if it fixes the problem.

    All other drivers up to date.
    I've tried many of the updates for my GPU, post 17.1.1 including the latest, and they all exhibit the same problem.
