Ubuntu 18.04.3 Freezes Randomly, amd radeon

Asked by Chris Studstill on 2020-01-11

I am brand new to Linux.
Dual booting with windows 10. No problems on that end.
I have put hours into this problem already, cannot find anything that works.
Mouse, screen, everything freezes or only screen and starts to cycle on and off.
Have been able to get almost a whole day out of it once, but then just now it happened in the middle of trying to reinstall.

Installing the amdgpu-pro caused it to no longer get past the boot, even, so the reinstall was to try and just start over.
