        • Re: AMD Radeon R7 HD 9000 Series black screen.

          What has changed on your system recently to cause this issue? For example, have you updated your display drivers?

            • Re: AMD Radeon R7 HD 9000 Series black screen.

              I changed my system from windows 8.1 to windows 10 then I was doing my stuff as usuall and after 1-2 months it started to happen.

                  Try the steps below to see if they resolve your issue.


                  1. Run the Windows self check tool to check scan and automatically repair any corrupt files found in Windows. There is a guide on how to do it here.  What you need to do is run an elevated command prompt (elevated means run it as administrator) and type SFC /SCANNOW. This will generate a statement indicating if errors were found the Operating system and if they were fixable.


                  2. Make sure you have installed Microsfot NetFramework and Visual C++ 2013. These should be installed already, but they can become damaged, need repairing or reinstalling.


                  3. Update Windows. Install all available critical, recommended and optional updates. Often Netframework and Visual C are included in the recommended or optional updates Windows provides. Windows should always be fully up to date before installing our drivers!


                  4. Use DDU to sweep the system of AMD drivers.


                  5. Install the latest Crimson 16.6.1 drivers once the above is completed.

                it a hardware failure gpu dead.try below step it worked for me.

                1. need "air heat gun" and "heat thermal paste".

                2. disassemble laptop fully.

                3.remove heat sink with fan from motherboard clean the fan dust if your have and now able to find chip process and AMD  Gpu in laptop.

                4.read the chip which one is GPU and take "air heat gun" blow up-to 5 to 10 min then wait to cool 30 min don't touch chip.

                5.put the thermal paste on both intel proccess + amd gpu chip place the heat sink carefully.and assemble your laptop

                6. turn on  install any catalyst driver .i have install 15.11 catalyst  (don't install crimson driver it burn your GPU)

                and enjoy

                it working fine for me...
