Re: Applying AMD drivers cause black-screen, corrupt Windows boot record

Nope not tried 18.12.1.1 didn't go that far back but I will do! Be interesting if the new card has the same issue be a bit annoyed if it does, don't really need a new card although it will be nice to have, if it arrives that is!

FYI, here's a link to another thread I'm writing on with more detail of everything I've tried doing so you don't waste your time. https://community.amd.com/thread/239205

Re: Applying AMD drivers cause black-screen, corrupt Windows boot record

My newest post on that thread is still under review by moderators.  AMD added a lot of features in 18.12.2 that weren't there before, I think at least my particular issue is something to do with those features.

Re: Applying AMD drivers cause black-screen, corrupt Windows boot record

Do you have the latest Win10 update? The current AMD drivers are compiled for and require it.

Re: Applying AMD drivers cause black-screen, corrupt Windows boot record

I'll check later today if there's any new windows update but as of last night was on the newest version.  Different versions of win 10 have made no difference.  My computer info (including OS build) above I copied and pasted from a post I had 4 months ago.  This has been going on for 4+ months.

Re: Applying AMD drivers cause black-screen, corrupt Windows boot record

Sorry fancyabrew, just realized that you had asked me a question.  So I went with an MSI Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, since research online seemed to suggest that this card was working well for folks like myself running an older Dell Dimension XPS 8500.  I installed it and got it up and running this morning, and so far so good.  If that changes, I'll let you know (and I'm sure a new AMD card would have worked out too...but...I just went with something different).  Good luck to you!

Re: Applying AMD drivers cause black-screen, corrupt Windows boot record

OK just tried 18.12.1.1 had the same black screen. New card has arrived but it has display port and hdmi and my monitor only has displayport dvi and vga and I only have a dp to mini do cable grrrrrrrrrr so I'll have to wait to get a dp cable tomorrow. Typically if it was delivered like it should have been yesterday I could have got a dp cable from work. Grrrrrrrrrre

Double check the stuff that came with your monitor. Since you were not using it at the time you may have gotten a display port cable and just dismissed it. Every display port monitor I have bought so far came with one. Not saying they all do though.
