280x Showing Black Screen

Question asked by tunda11 on Oct 14, 2015


MSI Z87-G45

XFX Radeon R9 280x

Windows 10 Home - 64 Bit


I was using the XFX Radeon R9 280x graphics card fine until i decided to hook up another monitor. I switched to the HDMI output and used it for an hour. Then when i restarted, the screen was black. If I boot the PC with the graphics card in I get no display. When I unplug the graphics card and use the onboard, I can use the computer fine. I even set the BIOS to boot the IGD instead, but anytime the graphics card is plugged in I get a black screen.

I tried everything. I uninstalled the drivers and registry keys. I updated the BIOS. I reset the CMOS. I reseated the graphics card. I used all the ports on the graphics card.


I'm stuck. Sitting with a pretty expensive brick in my PC.
