Guys, you could try to increase gpu voltage or set power limit to max (+20%). The error you get could be because the gpu doesn't get enough power.
You could do this from MSI AB / Sapphire Trixx or try it from the driver (only power limit there).
I wanted to buy a graphics card and play games, period.
I dont know how to do the things you suggest
All i know is that i wasted 280$ on a broken card.Yay
I'm pretty sure that's not it for various reasons.
- If it was this easy AMD would be able to fix it.
- If this was the issue it wouldn't have started with all driver versions after 15.11.1
- The card would probably only give a black screen during intense stress, but it happens when it's hardly pulling full power too
Agree. I tried increasing power limit (although 10%) on stock clocks and i didn't helped me. Now, using 15.11.1 i overclocked my card to 1080mhz without touching any power options (without increasing power limit and voltage) and card is full stable.
Screen went black again.I never would expect that it would come to this, but I want to remove R9 380 and re-install my old graphics card.
All I need to do is to uninstall the drivers, turn of the pc and remove the card, right ? Or is there something else I must do before removing it ?
This is year 2019. I bought an used XFX R9 380 2GB card and have the same issue.
The problem is still not solved but I want to summarize my findings.
My computer would re-boot as long as the GPU temperature stays >50°C for a few minutes.
After reading many articles online and after my own debugging, the overheating seems being the real root-cause of this issue. But ONLY 50°C!?! This is absurd.
After all the efforts, the only way I can have a stable gameplay is to keep gpu temperature lower than 50°C.
More fans are added and GPU is running lower clock frequencies and lower voltage.
For a low budget $200 gaming PC in year 2018, I am fine with this work-around.
Hi everyone, i use to have the exact same problems and tried all the "possible" solution.
I resolve the problem by totally reinstalling windows.
The problem appeared some month ago on Windows 7, various BSOD, Freeze, Restarts. I tried to change drivers for older ones and it solved it for some days. After what the computer was still crashing. I tried to totally uninstall the Graphic Card, and just run the computer with the intel ship, but after a while, AMD R9 pop up from nowhere, take the lead and make my computer crash. Like if an old driver was making the mess somewere.
So i upgrade to Windows 10, and the problem still appear.
I uninstall the Graphic Card and Clean the whole machine with DDU. Then install the 15.12 drivers, launch a game and it was full of artefact.
At this point my computer crash, black screen, cannot manage to see something for a while.
So i began to look for some new graphics cards, but before buying it i tried a proper new installation of Windows 10.
And here it is, working fine, last recommended drivers installed, checking the temp of the GC and it's ok.
So give it a try.
Something make me think that after a long time windows begin to be corrupted for some reasons.
