R9 280X crashes when installing drivers

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey,

I'm trying to salvage an XFX R9 280X, when I install the drivers it flashes once and then just shows an active black screen and the PC is unresponsive. When I restart, it loads up Windows and even shows me the boot logo but then returns to the acrive black screen. I have to go into safe mode and remove the drivers so Windows returns to the Basic Display Adaptor. 

I have moved the GPU to a different fully functional machine but the same error occurs. I have replaced the thermal paste, flashed the GPU BIOS, installed older versions of the drivers to unfortunately to no avail.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Ryan.

Youtube OVENBAKE GPU - watch multiple sources.

I've done this to two GPUs and they were successful in returning from the dead,..many others have too.
FOLLOW Guidelines of disassembly and it may in fact come back for a period of time for a day ot months... who knows but it can work.


Maximums - Asus Z97-K /w i5 4690 Bclk @106.9Mhz * x39 = 4.17Ghz, 8GB of 2600Mhz DDR3,.. Gigabyte GTX970 G1-Gaming @ 1550Mhz
