Black screen with RX 480. I Need Help.

Jump to solution

My Current Specs:

  • RAM: 6 GB DDR3 RAM
  • Motherboard: Dell 0GDG8Y Motherboard
  • CPU: Intel i3-2120
  • HDD: ST500DM02-BD142 ATA Device
  • PSU: Thermaltake TR2 430W
  • OS: Windows 10
  • DVD DRIVE: HL-DT-ST DVD +-RW GH82N ATA Device

What I have done:

  1. Disable onboard Video
  2. Shut Down PC
  3. Insert RX 480
  4. Connect RX 480 to PSU
  5. Connect HDMI to GPU and Monitor
  6. Turned on PC
  7. Fans start blowing and so does the GPU's fan
  8. Monitor gets no signal.

I want to know what else I should attempt to do.

My PSU came in, but it's still doing the same thing. I think this might be a BIOS issue, but I have no idea how I would fix this.

It should work.

SHOULD, it it actually works, I have no idea.

I own a 500W PSU and it struggles a lot with my 380X, I am today trying to order a Corsair RM1000x (note that you don't need a GPU /THAT/ beefy, it is that the RM1000x is a particularly good PSU, achieveing Platinum efficiency despite being rated Gold, is much easier to find in my country than any other good PSU, and I am a heavy user, my PC for example has 32GB of RAM and 3TB of storage, and I plan in adding even more).
