Problem running R studio: Display driver AMD driver stopped working and has successfully recovered

After uninstalling and reinstalling R and Rstudio, Rstudio no longer opens - There's a toolbar at the top but where the console and everything else should be it's just empty space, and I get the above error: "Display driver AMD driver stopped working and has successfully recovered". After this it stops responding.

I have fully updated my PC and also factory reset and the problem has persisted.
