    My R9 280X XFX "died" during drivers update


      Hello good people.


      I have problem with my graphic card and I would like if anyone else suffered similar problem.


      After few day of asking, I decided to let my graphic card to update drivers. It started, screen flickered once, than once more and PC went off. Until I have 8-pin and 6-pin plugged in my R9, PC just blinks once and won't even start turning on. When I start PC without power on the card it works great ( with on-board card ). I never ever had any problems with the card. First problem and BOOM, it went dead.


      So, anyone has any solutions maybe? Similar issues? Possible way to help?
