R9 290 Crashing With Black Screen

Jump to solution

I recently did a new clean intall of windows bacause for the new year.

But i ran in the problem that I can't intall the GPU driver for my R9 290.

When installing it goes my screen goes black and after a forced reboot the same would happen until I reboot in to safe mode.

Hope you guys can help.

Only one way what i know how to fix that issue it's modding vbios. You need to set up manual voltages for each DPM state. I can do some tweaks if you upload your vbios or you can do it by yourself using "hawaii bios reader"

Try version 17.7.2. The newer drivers don't work for me as well. Some drivers will give me signal loss on my monitor 3 or 4 times in a row, some will cause the same problem you just described.

Did that like 100 times (not kidding) Doesn't work and the problem is that i cant use my computer because windows automatically will install AMD drivers which causes the crash.

Configure Windows 10 not to install any drivers thru Windows Update. My experience the best way is to do it using Windows Group Policy.

You didn't read the post...or you would have seen:

I did read the post.

I know the windows 10 problem for a long time the thing is that can't even manually install AMD drivers without crashing.
