HP Z600 with RX 470 - freezing screen in Windows 10

HP Recommended
Z600
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an RX 470 in a HP Z600. I have the latest BIOS (Mar 2018). Windows 10 is installed. When at BIOS screen or DOS (e.g. memory check) everything works fine, but when Windows is running the screen freezes. It can freeze anywhere from right at the start of loading to a few minutes later (when using Windows). Any ideas?

 

CPU X5647

OS Windows 10

Graphics Card AMD Radeon Rx 470

RAM 8GB

HDD 2 x 500GB

Finally found out the problem was a TP-LINK network card in the PCI socket causing problems. I replaced it with a network card in the PCI-E socket and all is happy now.

I tried it again today. Plugged everything back in and it worked. No idea why it didn't dozens of times the other day. One thing though, I used a better fitting HDMI cable which may be the reason why it now works.
