I have the following problem and hopefully someone is able to help me:
Since my graphics card crashed today while playing a little bit, I get a black screen when booting in Windows. The installed driver is the newest one (18.7.1) and everything worked properly since the crash today.
So since I couldn't get any visual image on my screen I tried booting in safe mode which worked nicely. So I uninstalled the graphics card driver in safe mode und restarted the computer normally in Windows. Luckily the black screen was gone, but without any drivers it is of course pointless. So I thought, that I could install the driver again. But after doing that, I got the black screen issue once again... 😕
Here is my system configuration, just in case:
I hope, that I've descriped my problem sufficiently. English is not my first language.
Thanks in advance!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Finally I managed to borrow another card and with this card (Radeon HD 5700 with newest drivers) everything works fine. I already ordered a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti today
Thank you guys for all your help!!
Yes, I uninstalled the driver with DDU in safe mode. Sorry for not mentioning that in my first post.
However I didn't try to uninstall the driver on the regular way. I went straightforward and used DDU.
I'm using HDMI output
Typically, I'd recommend running DDU after a regular install but I don't think this is the issue here...
Do you get any video if you use the standard DVI connection?
Got SAME issue 1 day ago. Last night I was playing Overwatch and suddenly system has stopped and i got RED screen without any symbols (like if I was overclocking my GPU).
Rebooting PC didn't help as I was facing permanent Black Screen. Started to use advises from the internet like safe booting, using DDU and performing clean boot, switching PCI-E ports, cables (HDMI, DVI) and etc. Nothing helped!
Finally i met a thread here about the way that could potentially help with this problem. It was... yeah... BAKING
As guys instructed - 375F, 11 mins, full GPU disassemble. Its was all done 1 hour ago... and now my gpu works great!
BTW: HD7850 2G from ASUS, i5 4590, H97Pro, 16GB RAM, Windows 10 Pro 1803, latest AMD driver 18.7.1
Don't know how long my card is going to work without any problems, but it was definitely a right decision...
Hope it helps!
With DVI it is the same problem. I'll try a display port cable tomorrow.
However it seems to me, that the resolution is the problem. This happened just now as I tried to change the resolution to the highest possible option (2560x1080) without any driver installed. And this also just seems to hapen whenever I try to install the driver again because during the installation the resolution apparently goes up to 2560x1080px by itself.
