Figured I'd post here for any other potential opinions;

 

Anyhow, my previous post said;

 

"Hey guys, I recently got this graphics card and came into receiving a random black screen at a random time. I found the solution here;Amazon.com: Sapphire Radeon VAPOR-X R9 290 4GB GDDR5 DUAL DVI-D/HDMI/DP TRI-X OC Version PCI-Express Graphics Card 11227…  under the reviews. However, my question is...

 

Do I still download those AMD OMEGA Driver 14.12 drivers as they may now be out of date? Also, is there an easier fix?"

 

Kingfish was helping me out and I tried everything he mentioned over at Re: black screen for Sapphire Radeon Vapor-X R9 290 4GB GDDR5 yet I still am receiving black screens. It has happened while not playing games as well.
