Nitro radeon r9 fury isn't detected and I can't install drivers.

Jump to solution

Hello, I got a new GPU from my friend who used it without any problems for a few years.

Since getting it, I wasn't able to get any display signal out of it and my Windows device manager doesn't show any GPU and I'm forced to run on my PCU's integrated graphics.

I updated my BIOS, I updated everything possible through windows update, all other drivers etc, checked everything.

The only thing that might help would be installing a driver for the graphics card, but I need to do it manually. When I tried downloading it somewhere, I only got to download the AMD Adrenaline software, which can't install anything if it doesn't detect any AMD hardware in my PC.

So I basically need the driver itself, without AMD Adrenaline, so I can install it even without having my graphics card detected.

Also, the PCI-E on my motherboard shouldn't be at fault since the graphic card's fans are running and I had no problems whatsoever with my old graphic's.

Thanks in advance

If it might help, these are the specs:

MB - MSI b150 gaming m3

PCU - i5-6400 2.70GHz

Memory - Kingston 1x8GB 3200MHz

Update after a while. 

I was an idiot any my old graphics cards never needed a dedicated cable from the power supply, this one does need it and I didn't notice it at all. Only when returning it to the guy who sold it to me, he noticed I didn't have it plugged in. So I plugged it in and everything's working properly. 

Thanks for all the help.

sounds fishy...

use ATi-Flash with "atiflash -i" to see if there is actually anything shown

maybe flash the correct Fury bios if you can

PC: R7 2700X @4.1GHz + RX 580 4G (1500MHz/2000MHz CL16) + 32G DDR4-3200CL14 + 144hz 1ms FS P + 75hz 1ms FS
Laptop: R5 2500U @30W + RX 560X (1400MHz/1500MHz) + 16G DDR4-2400CL16 + 120Hz 3ms FS

I've never really used atiflash, so I'm not sure if I'm doing correctly, but I downloaded it and when I try to start amdvbflashWin.exe, it says "Cannot find discrete ATI Video Card".

use the dos programm

open CMD
cd /path-to-your-atiflash.exe
atiflash -i

and then please show me the output

It loads something for a second and then pops up a window saying "Adapter not found".

does your Fury has a bios-switch?

actually it sounds like a dead gpu...

I don't think it does. 

To me it also sounds like a dead gpu from the first minute, but I was trying everything to fix it because it'd be a really cheap good gpu for me if I got it working.

Yes it does have a dual bios switch. look it up on the web for location if you cannot see it on the card.

Try CSM compatible setting on your motherboard.

The GPU might not have UEFI "firmware".

The GPU might have died. Sapphire R9 Fury Nitro were famous for it.
There are a pair of Fuses on the PCB near the VGA connectors.
Check they have not blown.

I would send pictures but I can't on this forum.
