Well, the title speaks for itself. The problem persist ! Im sick and tired of it, really. Im using Radeon cards from 2005, and this is the first time, well from 4 months now, that I cannot use my PC normal. From 15.11.1 Crimson, to 16.4.1 I have black screen just before loading of the desktop, or at the first look of the desktop. This is when I shut down the system and boot it again to Windows. Not after reboot. So it happen when the motherboard check the videe card again. My specs are:


Sabertooth X79, final official bios 4701

Radeon R9 290 ref. pcb, bios

Windows 10 Pro, x64,  v1511, 10586


Tried and Sapphire R9 290 Tri-X with other bios version, no difference.

Tried every given solution in this forum, but nothing is working for me.

So, as I said so - this is from the first version of Crimson driver, where is the problem, and when it will be fixed ??!


AMD, you have beautiful hardware, and very poor driver support. That is the problem. Not some other company...
