Zerocore Power not working

Question asked by arsur on Aug 24, 2015

Graphics Card: Sapphire R9 290 4G GDDR5 PCI-E DUAL DVI-D / HDMI / DP DUAL-X OC VERSION (UEFI)

Mainboard: Asus Z87M-Plus

Power Supply: Aurum Xilenser 500

RAM: 8gb

Prozessor: Intel I7 4770S


up to now i used an very old version of Catalyst (never change a running system) on Windows 8.1.

So with Windows 10 i made first an upgrade and than an clean installation of Windows 10. My Computer runs (without the Graphics Card) completly passive, so its mandetory for me that Zero Core Power works in "deep idle".

With Windows 10 and Catalyst 15.7 Zero Core stopped working the way it should, even on a clean system with all drivers.

Windows Turns my Display off after 1 min

Graphics Card still running about 2-4 min

Graphics Card switches fans off for 1 second

instant restart of the fans

after 3-4 min fans go off again for 1 second




Things i have tried so solve my problem:

2 x Clean Windows 10 with all drivers from asus homepage

Disable all HDMI Audio Devices

New Bios Drivers

Resetting Bios

test DVI to HDMI Cabel

test HDMI Cabel

Deinstalling and reinstalling Catalyst in Windows 10

set Windows Power management to balanced and to energy saving

set Mainboard Power Management to energy saving

set Asus Suite Power Management to energy saving

testing arround with some ASMP Bios Settings


I realy need help. Iam out of ideas, maybe i did something wrong? On Windows 8.1 with old drivers everything worked perfekt, even Zerocore.
