GPU not being used in game (Fifa 16)

I'm having a problem running Fifa 16 on my PC.

Firsty, I would like to say that I have already tried updating all drivers and re-installing the game.

The problem is, the game doesn't appear to be using my GPU to run, which causes the FPS to drop to between 1-5 as soon as I get past the settings selection, which obviously means the game is unplayable.

Using MSI afterburner, I can see that the GPU is always at 0% when in game, which isn't the case when using other games (Skyrim), which runs fine at Ultra settings.

I'm using an AMD R9 280 GPU and an AMD FX 6300 CPU.

Another sign that the game isn't using the GPU as it should, is the fact that I can't change the resolution in the settings, which is fixed at 1280x720, as no other options are available, and the game always starts in windowed mode, as the "Full screen" option is grayed out, and  cannot be selected.

It seems to me that for whatever reason, the game is refusing to use the GPU.


Has anyone experienced this with Fifa 16 or other games, or have any ideas on how to resolve this issue?


Thanks in advance!
