New AMD Radeon driver bricked my system! Anyone else experiencing this and have any advice?

I just installed the newest driver for my rx580 and I left while it was installing. I came back to an unresponsive black screen so obviously I just turned my pc on and off (lol) and now I can’t get any video signal to my monitor. Anyone else experiencing this? Have any advice?

Does your system have an iGPU? If so boot from that. 

 

Also you'll have to fire up DDU to remove the drivers and install new ones.

Yes, the same thing happened to me (Vega 56). I just rolled back my drivers. I thought it was in part to me messing around in the BIOS until I remembered I installed new drivers. Solved the problem. Fastest/Easiest way is to do it, go to 'Device Manager' right click your GPU under 'Display Adapters', go to 'Properties', 'Driver' tab and click Roll Back.

 

Problem Solved!

I'm not sure, but the driver I'd installed for my VEGA 64's were from guru3d (official AMD ones) and they did say the driver's meant for VEGA 56/64 only.......

I have yet to try on win10 but should be able to boot into something like a safe mode by pressing something in the very startup to give boot options like it once was. Do that , boot safe, and roll back drivers.

Having similar issues but not exactly the same. Bought a rx vega 56 like two weeks ago, and upgraded to the new driver this friday and it killed my gpu. It freezes under the tinyest load. It even displayed a total death screen once with wierd lines across the screen and that frozen pc-sound from the speakers. Tried ddu and older drivers, didnt work. Tried reseating the gpu several times, and that did nothing. Luckily i didnt sell my old graphics card so i use that instead. Guess i gotta try to get a replacement vega tomorrow...

You need to uninstall the radeon software. It happened to me to. Or don't install version 18.12.2. 18.12.1 was working fine for me but then it updated by itself so I just installed it. I doubt you're going to fix the problem with a new card.

Boot in safe mode

Don't ask to ask, just ask... please 🤨

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Sorry to hear this man, that is a nightmare.  Installing simple drivers botches your rig.  This is why I am not on team Red.  They blow when it comes to drivers, however their hardware is good.  They just have interns working on the drivers lol.  Let this be a lesson, next time try gang green.  :)

If he can't get a post then the driver isn't the problem and the graphics card might have died.

@Swordhero1  have  you tried an alternate connector to your GPU?

 

to see if the update rolled back something weird  like your preferred display connection port

Ok hey guys sorry for the no response for a while there. Turns out it was a very common issue with my monitor. I tried HDMI and that was working, so I looked up “why is my display port not working” (I know lol but bear with me) and this one video suggested just unplugging the monitor and plugging it back in..??? No way this could work, right? I mean of course I’ve turned the monitor on and off. I tried it, and it worked. The video has a huge number of views and comments saying it worked for them so I guess it’s a common issue??
