Re: R9 380X black screen

Hey! Is it good? I am very happy with 16.7.3 so I don't plan to go 16.8.1 unless it is better than 16.7.3.

Re: R9 380X black screen

Good luck! First time this has ever happened and that was after updating to 16.8.1.

Honestly I've had nothing but issues for the past like 2.5 months and I regret ever giving AMD the benefit for the doubt. Saving up for a 1060 at this point and might even put my 760 back in. I'd rather play with lower graphics than blue screen or green screen every 30 min. >.>

Re: R9 380X black screen

I'm on Windows 10. My card worked fine for about 2 months and then the horrible drivers started rolling out and I've had nothing but issues since.

Re: R9 380X black screen

Hi all,

Like tons of people here, I discovered yesterday that I am in the same boat. My card is an XFX R9 390. In fact, I didn't play in the last 3 month until yesterday. My games are : iRacing, Assetto Corsa, Project Cars and Battlefield 4.


Yesterday, I decided to jump in iRacing and got Blackscreen with a lost signal and a MUST FORCE REBOOT. I thought it was a rare crash and launch the game again... Here we go, 5 minutes later, same crash!! 1st thing I though was : my card is dead or I installed something new that enter in conflict with the game.

So I made some search and discovered this thread. I read those 30 pages and now I CAN'T BELIEVE the problem is still not corrected by AMD!

I updated to 16.8.2 but same problem.

This morning, I installed the W10 anniversary update, run DDU and reinstall 16.8.2 but same problem.

I read some solution in this thread that work soso (like TRD or Overdrive settings) but If I understand, the only solution for now is to roll back to 15.11.1 version to be safe! Wow this is crazy!

When you pay $400 for a graphic card, you expect a little more reliability in your games.


I truly hope we are close to a fix because this situation is unacceptable!
