When updating the drivers my computer restarted itself, then the graphics card didn't display the display and the fans didn't work too . The light on button for changing the bios is also off. The card was checked on a different computer and went the same. My old xfx 7850 now work in my pc

Re: My sapphire r390 just die after drivers update

It is possible that your card was already failing when you tried to update the drivers. If your card has the same symptoms on another computer, it probably went bad.

If it still under Warranty, Good luck with Sapphire. Very poor Warranty and difficult to get an RMA. I believe they have a two year Warranty.

Here is another thread concerning a Sapphire R9 doing the something similar and his experience with Sapphire Support: Sudden death of Sapphire R9 Fury?

Dont be sad, you would not have got anything from Sapphire in the first place

My Fury still is under warranty and died a similar way, but Sapphire tells me to just send it back to the seller of the Card, eventhough they cant replace it.
