    Radeon R9-2xx series: Swisscheese windows!


      Recently built a (mostly) new desktop machine, with existing video card (Radeon R9-200 series).


      Clean install, fully updated, or upgraded/repaired install I persistently get this for many apps: http://ic.pics.livejournal.com/mundywoof/641399/156179/156179_original.jpg


      Here's the specs for the current system: http://speccy.piriform.com/results/67yko16EIZGdt15Pk8BXDf7


      No BSoD's, no errors or any crashes. If I uninstall the video driver and put in the default SVGA, everything is perfectly fine, no corrupted graphics anywhere. Most of the applications run perfectly otherwise, save the occasional swisscheesed graphic in the web browser(s).


      I suspect a driver conflict, or maybe bad setting(s) somewhere. I made sure to download all the correct and latest drivers for my system (Win7/64-bit) and hardware. But the results are always the same.

          What graphics card do you have? R9 200 SERIES tells us nothing....240?260?280?290?290x?


          A lot of people do not click links




          EDIT: Moderators this is a perfect example of why we need to have some way of forcing the needed specifications...or at least a "Please Read Before Posting"

              It's an R9 280.


              I linked to a Speccy output because it's thorough but also highly verbose, which could be considered spamming if I'd pasted in large portions of it.


              Also.. This post was moderator approved before being shown. Asides from missing the exact model number, I didn't think that I was out of line for posting links, over embedding and pasting.
