AMD Ryzen 7 1700 Gaming Issue

Hi guys,
I recently updated my rig to the AM4 socket with the Ryzen 7 1700. I was looking forward to the much needed improvement over my previous setup (which is dead due to a capacitor on the motherboard exploding). However, for the past few days it has been nothing short of a frustrating experience with constant BSODs, sluggish performance and constant screen flickering on and off that lasts for 3-5 seconds (still happening as I type this post up). Currently, I still experience screen flickering and sometime BSODs immediately after logging in (error is Video_Scheduler_Internal_Error). Now, I have a new problem when I attempt to play games. Any game that I play, one of the following occurs:
- Screen freezes for roughly 10 seconds before going back to normal...then it freezes again
- Black screen after loading to the start screen followed by freezing,
- Game crashes after loading
- dxgi_error_device_removed occurrence (only with Origin games)
This has never occurred before when I previously used my i5 Haswell system. I was wondering if anyone has experienced anything like this or knows how to fix it. I think my patience is starting to run dry and may be looking to go back to Intel after this. Thanks guys :)

My setup:
AMD Ryzen 7 1700 (At Stock Speed with Stock Cooler)
MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon
Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8GB 2400Mhz
Samsung 840 EVO 250GB

    As you did not mention if this was a fresh install, on a computer that works, I'd go to Microsoft's website, and prepare the latest Win10 version build using their installation USB tool....

    Might also want to see which mainboard BIOS version you are using....update that, too....

    Also, get your latest MSI chipset drivers, and, latest Nvidia drivers.

    Assuming your data is backed up somewhere.....

    Delete partitions, nuke and pave, full install, retaining nothing from previous install...(deleting partitions will make certain of this)!
